The Lev Dermen trial commenced this week in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.  The case has to do with a multi-million-dollar scheme that Dermen and his former business partner, Jacob Kingston, carried out using an oil company in the US.  For Belize, the focus is not on the scheme but the allegations coming out of the trial that fingers a Government Minister in Belize who was bribed with fifty thousand dollars monthly for special favours.  The trial is expected to conclude by March 12, 2020, and during that time, testimony from Kingston is expected to reveal who the Minister is and what special favours were given in return.  Dermen is being charged with ten counts: one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud, one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering and eight counts of money laundering. He faces up to 180 years in prison.  Love News is following the trial and will keep you posted.
