Erwin Contreras scuttles Senate Committee hearing with non-appearance

Posted: Wednesday, May 29, 2024. 4:42 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: A notice from the National Assembly states that former Government Minister Erwin Contreras has refused to appear before the Senate Special Select Committee which was due to have a public hearing today, Wednesday.

Contreras, who signed the “Definitive Agreement” with Portico Enterprises Limited for development of Port of Magical Belize days before the 2020 general election, is facing legal action over the Agreement which grants various financial concessions for the development over a 30-year period.

The Committee said Contreras indicated that he “did not wish to attend,” but does not say whether that is due to legal advice or other strategy.

Nonetheless it invites him to reconsider as he is the only person who can explain why he signed an agreement that developer David Gegg said in a recent hearing was still enforceable.

No date has been set for another hearing.
