By BBN Staff: On Sunday, 24th May 2020, President of the Football Federation of Belize (FFB), Sergio Chuc told BBN that there will be a lawsuit for defamation filed against one Jesus Castillo, Sr., who posted a social media “scoop” alleging mistreatment and termination of staff of the Federation only a day after unveiling a multi-million dollar upgrade of the FFB Stadium bleachers.
In that exclusive interview with BBN, Chuc emphasized that “the Federation had worked hard to clean up its image and would not tolerate it being sullied again”.
The FFB now reports that after facing a lawsuit for “serious and grossly misleading allegations against the FFB,” Jesus Castillo, Sr., has apologized by letter which the Federation has accepted.
In a statement released today, the Federation acknowledges, “the politics involved in football often misleads people who often react with emotions and bad intentions that brings disrepute to the organization.” It promises to continue to work for the best interest of football in Belize.
At the center of the controversy between the between Jesus Castillo, Sr. and the FFB was the release of Kent and Christine ‘Jean’ Gabourel, a couple who had worked with the Federation for more than a decade and a half each. Kent Gabourel was goalkeeper coach and ground maintenance chief; ‘Jean’ was a cook and cleaner on behalf of the National Football Team.
