In news emanating from the Football Federation of Belize, today the president and its executives announced the formal resignation of Vice President, Rawell Pelayo. The FFB release states that Pelayo tendered his resignation to the General Secretary on Saturday May 8th. As assured by the President Ruperto Vicente, Pelayo handed the letter on his own time and on his own free-will. The release ends stating that the Federation will continue to carry its mandate to the development of football in Belize and Pelayo will be replaced by a member of the football family. For context, the senior (FFB) executive, who in June of last year pleaded guilty to conspiring to contravene US narcotics laws, was given the opportunity to resign, rather than to be booted from his post. He was no longer able to maintain his post since the guidelines of the federation state that any executive criminally charged locally or internationally cannot serve on the board of the Football Federation of Belize.
As to the financial documents Pelayo had in his possession when he was nabbed by U.S Immigration more than a year ago there is no update on that as yet. The last we heard Pelayo had not handed those documents to the FFB which are needed in order for the federation to present a financial report to the public.
