Cop to be Charged for Assaulting Another

Belmopan Police are also investigating an incident which occurred on Thursday night in which Police Corporal Derin Mariano, assigned to the Mobile Interdiction Team, was badly beaten by another MIT officer, Corporal Jamir Casanova. Multiple sources today confirmed to News Five that there is a measure of conflict between officers because there is intervention to pressure investigators to keep the matter quiet to avoid criminal action. We understand that this is not the first time that Casanova has been accused of abuse of officers below him. In this particular case, Mariano has already given a statement requesting Court action. Today Officer Commanding Belmopan Howell Gillett was unavailable for comment, but sources tell us that he intends to pursue the matter and to lay charges against Casanova.
