Investigation into Chiquibul Death Finally Gets Underway

There have not been official details on the investigation into the death of Guatemalan minor Julio René Alvarado Ruano, which occurred on April twentieth, 2016 in the Chiquibul. Today the Mexican Embassy, in a press release, shed some light into the process but the tone of the release suggests that the investigation has not yet started and sets out the parameters of the inquiry as it relates to the role of the Mexican expert.  The investigation is expected to take two weeks, in the first instance but can extend for another weeks.  The report is intended to provide information for the verification of facts of the incident in the Adjacency Zone and present to the O.A.S. a single report. Additionally, Belize requested the work of expert investigations of other cases in which local security officers were injured.  According to Mexico, due to the lack of financial resources and personnel with the required expertise, the O.A.S. Secretary General on May twentieth invited Brazil, Chile, the United States and Mexico to participate in the investigation and cover their own costs. In the case of Mexico, the request was made for an expert in criminal investigation. Originally, the United States and Brazil confirmed their willingness to participate, but Brazil withdrew. As recent as June twenty-seventh, Mexico nominated Doctor Patricia Rosa Linda Trujillo Mariel, Head of the Coordination of Criminology of the Scientific Division.  Trujillo will carry out site visits, interview witnesses, verify information and provide critical reports to authorities of Belize and Guatemala.

    Hope the O.A.S don’t buy this Dr. Trujillo because then we are screwed as far as I can remember I some of us Belizeans have 0% trust in the O.A.S who normally sides with the guats for being an American background organization. And for those that don’t know feel free to investigate on your own. O.A.S has never sided with us nor has been a real mediator.
