Mek Mi Rich Trial Concludes in Supreme Court

Corozal businessman Curtis Dale Swasey is accusing Belize Telemedia Limited of breaching a non disclosure agreement making it possible for the owners of Mek Mi Rich to use his idea and making themselves rich. Swasey contends that he had developed an idea of a lottery game show involving cell phone texting. He called it Super Slam Sunday. Swasey says he took his idea and concept to BTL after which he held several meetings and exchanged several emails from officials of BTL over the course of two years and eight months.  He thought everything was going fine but in August 2014, he received a letter from BTL informing him that his idea was not in line with the company’s goals and as such, was rejected. A month later, to Swasey’s surprise, the Mek Mi Rich game show appears on national television. Swasey filed a claim for damages through his attorneys Kareem Musa and Wayne Piper suing BTL, which was represented by attorney Magali Perdomo, for breach of non disclosure agreement and the Directors of Mek Mi Rich, Andre Vega who is the son of Deputy Prime Minister Gasper Vega and Sanjay Hotchandani who were both represented by attorney Naima Barrow. Swasey’s attorney got the opportunity to prove his case while Perdomo and Barrow got their time to prove him wrong in the court room of Justice Courtenay Abel.

MAGALI PERDOMO

“We are very confident, the case went excellent for us. What the court has asked for Mr. Swasey to show that he is the owner of lottery texting so in this great wide world of bright minds that you Mr.Curtis Swasey created the idea of texting and lottery via SMS, he did not prove that today. He has also failed to prove that my client Belize Telemedia Limited breached the confidentiality agreement with him. He did not show an email, a text, he couldn’t provide the conversation; so he totally failed on that point to show a breach on the part of Belize Telemedia Limited.  So we are very confident in the way the case is proceeding for us.”

KAREEM MUSA

“No doubt we are very pleased with what was presented to the court today, it went exactly how we wished it to go so I don’t think it could have gone any better for us.”

LOCAL REPORTER

“Would you reject the assertion that while you probably poked some holes in the defense of the defendant that your client has not established a clear line, a smoking gun, that his idea was stolen?”

KAREEM MUSA

“Well I think if you look at the evidence you can see clearly where over the course of two and half years Mr. Swasey was providing technical information regarding lottery texting in Belize via the BTL cellular network.  So I think that was clearly established that he was the one who came up with the concept, they had no clue about that concept and that is evident by their response emails to Mr. Swasey.”

NAIMA BARROW

“The claimant himself recognized that the concept of SMS  texting to purchase lottery tickets or boledo doesn’t belong to him, that is what the intellectual property is required for and the designs are different so we feel as though we are in a comfortable place at the end of the hearing. We have submissions to make and it won’t be concluded until about February, so I can’t say with any certainty how this case will go but we are very comfortable with where we are.”

All parties are to submit written submissions by the end of January and on February 19 they are scheduled to appear in court for Justice Abel’s decision.
