NXIVM Mexico vows to keep open despite arrest of leader Raniere

NXIVM follower Alejandro ‘Alex’ Betancourt is a student of Keith Raniere and a member of the NXIVM executive board in the USA.

He, along with his lover Emiliano Salinas, run the NXIVM Mexico centers under the direction of now-jailed leader Keith Raniere, who was arrested for sex trafficking earlier this week.

In a press statement in Mexico, NXIVM [also known as Executive Success Programs or ESP] declared it would remain open.

This is the English translation:  

Alejandro Betancourt, General Director of Executive Success Programs  (ESP) in Mexico, announced that the company will continue to carry out its activities and courses, after the arrest of Keith Raniere, founder of the Nxivm corporation, of which they are a part.

The company specializing in personal and professional development programs with 15 years of experience told its clients and associates that despite the incident, ESP must comply with its functions and activities, which are parallel to what Raniere currently faces.

“ESP Mexico customers are informed that the company’s operations are maintained in a normal manner; since the operation of the licensing firm is independent of that of the corporate owner of patents and methodologies for personal improvement, “Betancourt said in a statement.

Keith Raniere was arrested in Mexico last week for the crime of sex trafficking and forced labor; However, the manager and the staff of ESP, were calm, and noted that this situation is in the hands of the authorities, and they trust that everything will be resolved favorably.

“We also ratify our confidence in the authorities regarding the events that occurred with the founder of the Nxivm corporate in the United States and we reiterate our certainty that a process that is in accordance with the law will be followed at all times,” Betancourt promised.
