Are Police Investigating Ministers’ Involvement with William Mason?

Richard “Dickie” Bradley

As we showed you earlier in our newscast, Melissa Ferguson has been sent to the Belize Central Prison on remand, another chapter in the William Danny Mason saga which continues to play out. Tonight we also have some more clips from an extended interview with attorney Dickie Bradley earlier this week, done while his client waited in detention to hear her fate. According to Bradley, one investigation is pretty much done, but there’s very little being said about another investigation.

 

Richard “Dickie” Bradley, Attorney for Melissa Ferguson

“The truth of the matter is this. The investigation into the alleged kidnapping and certainly the murder of Pastor Llewellyn Lucas – that investigation obviously the bulk of it is concluded in the sense that the information available to Mr. Mason is that they had beaten up one or more of his workers and improperly obtained confession information. In relation to Ms. Ferguson, she has been as I have said over and over, forthcoming, has offered to answer questions – answer questions for hours, gave a lengthy and detailed statement which she did not have to do. She did not have to answer any questions. The laws of this country say you are entitled to remain silent if you so wish. So in relation to that matter, whether they charge her for some minor offence or not – because if they charge her falsely for any kidnapping or conspiracy to kidnap, there will be repercussions if they have no evidence to hold up that charge. But what I really wanted to tell you last night is that the investigation which Belizean people keep asking about is the investigation into these ongoing allegations that Ministers of the Government of our country were frequenting Mr. Mason’s house on Intelco Hill and getting money, being given favors and that is far more serious than a lot of other matters we have been hearing. That is the investigation that people want to hear about. Who is conducting that investigation? Is an investigation being conducted?”

    We can only expect hypocrisy from lawyers and politicians; double hypocrisy when the politician is also a lawyer.
