Jaime Briceno. The is the brother of John Briceno, the Prime Minister of Belize. He is also the People’s United Party’s Deputy National Campaign Manager. When the PUP took Belmopan, Jaime was appointed Ambassador for Trade and Investment in the Briceno Administration. Today, the Prime Minister shut down reports that his brother is being paid with taxpayers’ dollars. He said his brother is not being paid a single cent.
Hon. John Briceno, Prime Minister of Belize: “I have told you already he gets no compensation. We come from a family of public service and we believe that money is not everything in the world. I could be spending my time in business and be doing much better than what I am I mean personally but we both believe – my mother was a teacher all my life, my father was part of public service and we believe we need to give back something to the country and Jaime is no different. He may not have his name on a ballot but he is always involved in so many activities and if you were to have taken the time out to find out more about it you would not have asked that question because I really find it insulting.”
