Former Remanded Prisoner Tells Story of Double Sodomy to News Five

Last week we told you the story of an inmate allegedly sodomized inside a cell at the Belize Central Prison. The young man was reportedly twice raped on separate occasions – the twenty-fourth and twenty-ninth of November. As we reported, a doctor classified the twenty-year-old inmate’s injuries as harm and the prison informed us that the matter had been turned over to the police. The alleged victim was on remand at the prison but because of a fight he was put on lockdown away from the other inmates. When he was placed on lockdown there was another prisoner inside the cell and later another man would join them but it wasn’t until the third person left that the prisoner made the attack on the young man overpowered him and sodomized him. The alleged victim is now out on bail and late this evening, he spoke exclusively to News Five recounting that what happened to him inside the prison was not a random act. He says that the first time he was sodomized he reported it to the guard on duty, but he was ignored and then the man would rape him a second time. That led to a fight which turned out bloody so the prison had to act. To protect the identity of the victim, we will not disclosed his name.
