The Public Service Union will be holding its Annual General Meeting on Saturday but things are already getting messy. A financial report dated November 2021 purportedly penned by former treasurer of the Belize Branch, Jennifer Myvett, is accusing the PSU of the very thing they are fighting for. Myvett says that the PSU’s Belize Branch lacks accountability. She even present specific accusations against the Belize Branch President and the national treasurer. But our review of the PSU’s financial statements show that Myvett’s claims are baseless. In fact, first vice president of the PSU Dean Flowers told Love News this evening that Myvett lost the Belize branch elections in 2020 and the report had been leaked back then to discredit her competitors. Flowers says the document is filled with baseless accusations and falsehood penned by a disgruntled loser.
Dean Flowers, First Vice President, PSU: “That report along with an accompanying letter which you’re right is dated November of 2020 and to give you a brief history of that that surfaced last year prior to the Belize district elections. Again that report is not the official report as submitted by the former treasurer that is a fabricated report that was aimed to mislead the members of the Belize district branch and that was proven via the results of that election because the fabricator of that report and letter was blown out three to one so if it is that there was any truth to that report or accompanying letter then clearly the members of the Belize district who received that misleading and libelous report and letter would have of course taken issue with it and would have ensured that the originator or the fabricator perhaps would have been successful but the fact that she was blown out three to one speaks volume that the report was a fabrication, it was misleading, it is untrue and it does not reflect the position or the reality of the Belize district branch.”
Hipolito Novelo, Love FM News: It is your opinion then that the report contains pure falsehood and you have documentation to prove that all what is contained there is false ?
Dean Flowers, First Vice President, PSU: “Yeah. Hipolito as you can attest the reason why you came here today is because we ensured that we provided to you every single piece of receipt and information and explanation in accordance with good accounting principles so that you yourself could have verified that in fact the correct report for the Belize district branch is different from that fabricated and misleading report. So I don’t have to answer that question you yourself would be able to in your commentary state that that is not the official position and that is not the official report of the Belize district branch.”
Following the original leak of the document in November 2020, an audit was conducted which was supervised by several leading members of the PSU including the Chief Magistrate Sharon Frazer. Flowers believes that the reason the document is being circulated again is to discredit him and his team before the elections on Saturday.
