Bernard Wagner, Mayor of Belize City: “I don’t manage that organization and so I’ll not comment further on that. That organization has a manager and the relationship that the manager has is not anything on the Mayor; they are two different entities.”

Reporter: Sir but if you own it it’s a conflict of interest you’d agree ?

 Bernard Wagner, Mayor of Belize City: “I did not send any kind of correspondence – “

Reporter: But do you own it? 

Bernard Wagner, Mayor of Belize City: “I own the business of course I own it.”

Reporter: Right so it’s a conflict of interest sir you’re the Mayor how will your office turn it down ?

Reporter: How would the council turn it down sir? It’s the Mayor’s business.

Bernard Wagner, Mayor of Belize City: “It’s a relationship with the manager of that business and the council I’ll leave it at that.”

Reporter: So essentially a relationship with your employee. 

Bernard Wagner, Mayor of Belize City: “I’ll leave it at that.”
