Carlos Raul Morales Says Report is not Conclusive, Must Be Expanded

Carlos Raul Morales

By and large in the aftermath of the death of fourteen-year-old Julio Rene Alvarado Ruano, it was felt that the Guatemalan government was ahead in its campaign to internationalize their allegations that the B.D.F. killed the minor and in fact lacked professionalism. Well, Minister Morales is now rejecting the report by the experts on the grounds that it is not conclusive. He was asked what will be the next step by Guatemala.

“Firstly, we would request an expansion of the report because it comes down to the testimonies of the people who were involved in the incident. What it contains is the testimonies of the Belizean soldiers and the version of the N.G.O. that took part in the event. And it contains of course the testimony of the father and that of the brother of the boy that was killed. The report has to be expanded because when we received the body of the child it did not have bullets. It was clean. However, the autopsy done in Belize does not mention the caliber of the bullets found in the body.”

“They could have manipulated all that?”

“Yes, of course. Of course. there are a series of shortcomings. An investigation was to have taken place the following day and that did not happen. The investigation took place two months later. In any case, it’s a report. It’s not conclusive. The investigators did their best to clarify what they found there. What is regrettable is the immature way the Prime Minister of Belize made these comments. The only thing he has done is damage the bilateral relations between Belize and Guatemala. It’s regrettable.”

    Guatemala is a big bully. God does not sleep. It’s sad that the child died. Where was he shot? On Guatemalan soil? No! How about Mr. Conorquie? Where was he attacked and killed as he was doing his job? On Belizean soil by people with horses dressed and speaking like you Mr. Morales. When will that investigation begin? I guess your name calling does not negatively impact the supposed confidence measurement you are talking about. Guatemala has always always taken advantage of Belize. Stepping into our territory to do as they please when they please. But wait, that’s ok right? It’s justified because Belice es la propiedad de los Guatemaltecos right?

    Dios no esta dormiendo!

    Dean Barrow must ban you from entering Belize, Carlos Raul Morales, as a persona non gratta. But that’s not good for diplomacy, is it? On another note, you cannot hide the truth. It is there, plain to see. Stop resisting the truth, and it shall really make you free, free of your wrath and poison that is consuming you and your fellow Guatemalan oligarchy that are salivating for more material wealth. It’s not going to happen, boy.
