Tonight, Prime Minister John Briceno is responding to UDP chairman Michael Peyrefitte. As we reported on Tuesday, Peyrefitte wrote to PM Briceno who is also the Minister of Finance, asking for the exact dollar figure that Courtenay Coye LLP and Senior Counsel Douglas Mendes have been paid in exchange for legal services for the Government of Belize. there is the appearance of a conflict of interest because the partners at Courtenay Coye LLP are Eamon Courtenay, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Christopher Coye, the Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance. We put the question directly to the PM. Here is how he responded.
