Jacob Kingston testifies in US court

LEV DERMEN

The Lev Dermen trial has wrapped up for this week and will reconvene on Monday.  Jacob Kingston, the key witness in the Dermen trial took the stand again today where he outlined the start of his business relationship with Dermen and how the fraudulent oil scheme got started.  Kingston testified that he met Dermen in California in December 2011.  Dermen visited him in Utah a few months later.  Their joint venture began a few weeks later and resulted in both Kingston and Dermen falsifying papers of oil shipments and claiming monies from the US Government’s biofuel tax credit program.  According to Kingston, Dermen at one point had six hundred thousand dollars and no way of getting rid of it.  Millions of dollars were subsequently spent on fancy cars, houses and used in multiple countries, bribing politicians and officials, including the US, Belize and Turkey.  Kingston testified today for just under two hours but there were still no names of any government official mentioned.  There was mentions of Belize, however, when Kingston noted that Dermen had business dealing with ministers in Belize and that he had travelled to Portland, Oregon for a football match that Belize was participating.  Minister John Saldivar has since admitted to flying in Dermen’s private jet to that specific game.  Saldivar had also lobbied the Government in getting Dermen an honorary consul status in Las Vegas but that was quickly shut down by US officials.  Tonight, the allegation of Dermen’s bribery of a government minister remains alive and all eyes will be back in the US Court next week to see if Kingston will name the minister in Belize who was receiving fifty thousand dollars monthly in bribes from Dermen.  According to court documents, text messages were exchanged between Kingston and John Saldivar, and an article in the Salt Lake City Tribune stated that Kingston will testify that Saldivar received bribes from Dermen. Saldivar has since maintained his innocence. We will continue to follow the trial.
