And amidst all the bloodshed, the police department extended its sympathies to the grieving families and stands in solidarity with the General Public and committed to do all in their power to investigate and prosecute those responsible, for these crimes, to the full extent of the Law.
A release from the Department reveals that with immediate effect, citizens and visitors to Belize City will see an increased presence of Law Enforcement Officers in selective areas of the City. Officers will be overtly patrolling the streets of Belize City and vehicular checkpoints will be conducted at strategic locations across the city in order to stem the violence.
And while the most sensationalized murder over the weekend was that of Ernest Meighan, his death reflects a great loss for the cycling world since he was a key component in the industry.
In a release from the People’s United Party, they expressed that Meighan was an elite Belizean Athlete and a former Holy Saturday Cross Country Champion. While the party sympathized with the grieving family, they also condemned the senseless murders and call on all Belizeans to join hearts and hands in this fight for our society.
The release ends stating that the ‘PUP stands ready to work with the Government and our communities to address the scourge of crime and violence destroying our nation,” end quote.
