Police Investigate Tricky Rape Claim Against Magistrate

There is a most disturbing allegation being made tonight against an officer of the court, one in which a sitting magistrate is being accused of having committed a sexual offence against a woman.  According to information reaching our newsroom, the magistrate in question purportedly invited the woman to his residence on April eleventh to have a conversation.  Whilst there, he allegedly removed her clothing and instead forcibly engaged in sexual intercourse with her against her will.  The very serious allegation against the lower court judge, who is assigned to the southern jurisdiction, is being investigated by the Belize Police Department.  The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions confirmed with News Five earlier today that the D.P.P. is aware of the report and that the police is in consultation with a crown counsel on the matter.  Charges relating to sexual misconduct, should there be any brought against the judicial officer, would be a first for someone in that capacity.

    Channel 5, believe it or not, this type of behaviour has been a long standing culture in many of the government departments; some willfully by the opposite sex and some unwillingly. Many of these young women get into unethical relationships with superior officers for fear of losing their jobs, promotions, or to show their connections to other staff members. I had blogged a few months ago about a mere receptionist right at Lands in Belmopan who thought she ran the office just because she was having an affair with a certain CEO, Mr. I Can Fix All Ministries. While this is not the purported case of the woman mentioned in this article, I want to highlight this culture in most of Belizean society and workplace, both public and private. Believe me, there has been rumblings of another case of this nature of a higher officer right in that same department who continues to make lewd comments, sexual advancements and also comments about thwarting the advancement professionally of a couple of the female employees. This has been an ongoing practice, but apparently , has gotten worse since his ascension to the top. I know for a fact of several instances and also a relationship with a former Director. If she only knew what I knew, she’d pay a visit to her nearest d….r.
