Screen_Shot_2014-06-11_at_8.18.29_PMThis afternoon word spread like wildfire when BSCFA’s Vice Chairman of the Committee of Management and the lead negotiator in the bagasse issue, Alfredo Ortega, was detained at the Orange Walk Police Station.


This time around, he wasn’t dealing with business matters of the BSCFA, but battling personal ones. We were made to understand that a committal warrant was issued for his arrest due to back payments on child support.

 

Ortega visited our studious to clear his name since he felt the move was one that he called ‘political mischief” since he is contesting this Sunday’s convention for PUP Standard Bearer for Orange Walk North. While visibly embarrassed, he says he has nothing to hide and wanted to settle any rumours the public may have heard of his detention.

“Es  una situación que se trajo de una mantención y si ha estado un poco atrasado y aclarado ciertos pagos de ello y se vino en este momento en que realmente no me lo esperaba que sucediera hoy pues ya está aclarado y ya está claro la situación y una gran parte y el balance voy a presentar lo que ya he aclarado anterior para que haiga esta aclaración en esta situación. La situación es algo personal pero sin embargo me vengo a dar cuenta de que es un political mischieve porque apenas me llevaron adentro del pólice station inmediatamente llegaron otros medios del media del otro cannel que estaban esperando pero realmente no tengo nada de esconder creo que todo mundo tenemos de una manera u otra viendo la situación en que esta el costo de vida debemos yo no soy una excepción y salió esta situación y lo hemos aclarado y gracias a mi familia, gracias a mi esposa, gracias a toda esa personas que me están apoyando y toda la maquinaria apoyándome y ya está aclarado esta situacion.”


Ortega will go up against Ramon ‘Munchie’ Cervantes and Jaime Castillo on Sunday’s convention to be held at the Trial Farm Government School.
