Police Proceeding with Amy Forte Forgery Investigation

Noel Leal

One more issue on the ongoing investigation into the land scandal involving Andre Vega…This morning, Acting Commissioner of Police Noel Leal fielded questions from the media in respect of the allegation made by Amy Forte regarding the forging of her signature.  While he admits to having assigned an investigator to the case, the police department is still in the process of collecting information before proceeding with the matter.

 

ACP Noel Leal, Acting ComPol

“I have assigned an Assistant Superintendent of Police from the Major Crimes Unit from the day the Prime Minister informed us about the information. So far that investigation is being done at two levels. It is being done at the Belize City level where the complainant and her attorney are mostly based and it is also being done from the Belmopan level in regards to the Lands Department. And I must say that the investigators have gotten in touch with the attorneys and we have not been able to get a written complaint yet from the complainant, but we are expecting to do that now. And this morning when I had a briefing with the commanders just before coming here, that is what they were pursuing this morning. So hopefully we will get the complainant in; I understand she might be from out of the city or the district, but the attorney has assured us that they will get her in to give us a statement. We have a lot of the documents already being put together and hopefully we will be able to complete the investigation in a relatively short time. It is under the supervision of Assistant Superintendent of Police, Mister Solomon Wesbey who is heading the Major Crimes Unit and he is being assisted from the Belize City side by Assistant Superintendent of Police, Mister Alejandro Cowo and other team members.”
