Saldivar lawsuit postpones PUP Belmopan convention

Saldivar lawsuit postpones PUP Belmopan convention
June 30
15:08 2018

The People’s United Party’s convention in Belmopan which was scheduled for July 1st, has been postponed in connection with Arthur Saldivar’s pending court action against the party.

Saldivar applied to the Supreme Court for an injunction on June 15th, after the PUP barred him from becoming a candidate in the upcoming convention. The matter went before Justice Shona Griffith on Friday, but after submissions made by Saldivar’s attorney, Christophe Rodriguez and the PUP’s attorney, Andrew Marshalleck, Griffith adjourned it to July 6th.

Apart from seeking to have his candidacy qualified, Saldivar is also seeking reimbursement to the tune of $200,000 which he says he spent campaigning for the convention.

The P.U.P.’s vetting committee rejected Saldivar’s application for standard bearer because he is currently on suspension.

Saldivar emphasized that his actions were not aimed against his party, that he remains loyal to the PUP and committed to serving the party and his people.

His issues with the PUP began in 2014 after the party suspended him on allegations of misconduct in his role as attorney for Melanie Coye in a high-profile, money laundering case.
