UDP Leader elect, John Saldivar got stacks of cash from Lev Dermen, Jacob Kingston testified

A report from Channel 5 News on the fraud trial in Salt Lake City, Utah, says that Lev Dermen gave Minister of National Security, John Saldivar stacks of cash, according to testimony in court this morning from Jacob Kingston.

The cash was in stacks of $10,000 US and this was done during a trip that Kingston and Dermen made to Belize in 2012.

According to Kingston, Saldivar used his ministry’s boat to take them on a trip to southern Belize. A picture of Dermen beside two Belize military men was shown in court.

This morning, the UDP Vice Chairman, Alberto August told Amandala that the Salt Lake City fraud trail has no bearing on the UDP.

In a media interview yesterday at the UDP National Convention, Saldivar denied the allegations of corruption.
