“I’m not in a position to determine the truth of what was said it was a tape recording and I was here to give my support to the Cervantes family obviously what we heard on the tape is very disturbing and very shocking and very alarming and don’t believe any citizen of Belize would want to believe that our country is heading to that direction and that would be a very, very, very sad and tragic day for all of us as Belizeans citizens so I certainly don’t want it to be true and I don’t want it to be true but we have an obligation to investigate it, the police have an obligation to investigate it and to look into it and to find out the truth not only to Mr. Cervantes and his family but to the Belizean people given what it has been disclose so we are continuing to demand justice for Don Ramon and for his family.”
According to the Party Leader, who has remained close to the Cervantes family throughout their loss and grief, if he will take any action as leader of the opposition it will have to be first sanctioned by the family.
