Who came on the mystery plane out of Saint Luis, Missouri in the USA on July 10th? That passenger then went on to San Pedro for business.

The press has been after this information for a month - but it's been closely guarded by the Civil Aviation Department. And, it seems even the Prime Minister had to drill down to get the info. We wanted to ask him about it at last week's press conference but we were shut down by the moderator after only two questions. Today, one of our colleagues did ask, and here's what the PM disclosed:

Rt. Hon. Dean Barrow - Prime Minister
"I have the name of the individual that came. I think the flight originated out of St. Louis. There is no question but that in terms of getting the clearance for the flight Minister Heredia from San Pedro did assist. He makes no apologies about that, because the person who came is a significant investor in Ambergris Caye. He has 20 million dollar investment called "Salt" something. Again, it's a pity that you never ask last week when I had all the information at hand. But in any event that easily I can send it to you afterwards, the name of the tourism investment that the individual has are going on Ambergris Caye and he also owns 2 additional premises. He is the owner of a penthouse and he is the owner of a condo. His itinerary was such that he had come to check on the new investment that had been started in to which I am told already 20 million US dollars have been poured, but he stayed at his condo which is maybe a mile or so away from the site of the investment. He limited himself to going back and forth between the 2 places as far as we can tell and after something like 10 days or so he went back out of the country. Although question of his circulating in the wider Ambergris Caye community and based on the protocol that we had develop about which we spoke in some detail last week there was nothing wrong with that flight and there was no lapse of judgement. There was no omission, there was no violation of any of the rules. End of story."

I am quite confounded that the person that actually traveled and created such scandal and controversy and did not seem to have any issues with allowing the court of public opinion pin the blame on another local developer who received much bad will, bad press and harm to his reputation and disharmony in our community.

I see no issue with someone following all protocols and coming to the island legally - but when it became some kind of coverup that cast negative aspersions against others it sure seems to me that someone with a political agenda caused this nefarious outcome.

I hope "Salt something" apologizes to people and businesses that were harmed and negatively impacted by his silence.

The investor "An American-born developer, originally from Branson, Missouri made a life in San Pedro 30 years ago, and is now a proud Belizean citizen."
There is the saying: "sometimes the cover up is worse than the crime".

The investor is Kevin Knasel. He is from Branson. He is Flynt Ray's partner in Salt Life development 4 miles south of town. Also of Paradise Ice Cream, Casa Picasso and Black Orchid. He lives in Branson and not a resident of Belize.

So the information on their web page is inaccurate.

Warren, you don't believe everything your read on a web page do you? What I wrote is true. Flynt has his citizenship, not Kevin.

Sorry. I am still confused. So which one of the investors/developers is the info on the web page referring to?

Kevin is the investor, he very big in timeshares. Flynt has been here on the island on and off for 30 years more so recently because of his new partnership with Kevin. Flynt was involved with Jeff Pierce at Reef Village.

Ok, thanks. I guess if Flynt was also from Branson that would make the info on the web page correct.

Wow 30 years is a long time. Almost as long as we have all been around old bywarren. Indeed the unnecessary and harmful to others cover up sure got messy fast for absolutely no discernible reason.
