Another Application of Bail for Murder

Matthew Moore

Could yet another accused murderer be out on bail by the end of this week? In the last fifteen months, no less than ten men accused of murder that have been on remand for extended periods of time have used that fact to seek bail before the court. It appears to be a new trend and the latest to try his luck today was Matthew Moore, who has been remanded for seven years. Moore was arrested and charged in April of 2011 for the murder by shooting of twenty-nine year old Andrew Moses in March of 2010 on Caesar Ridge Road. Moore, represented by Oscar Selgado, argues that his right to a fair trial held within a reasonable time under Section five, sub-section five of the Belize Constitution has been breached, but can be remedied with reasonable conditions set by the court. Crown Counsel Shanice Lovell countered that Moore faces a prima facie case, is a risk to abscond and a threat to public safety and faces capital punishment for the offense.  Supreme Court Justice Colin Williams, presiding, will give his decision on Friday. Moses, an employee of Minister Anthony “Boots” Martinez, was on his way home from work when a single armed man chased him to the intersection of Caesar Ridge and Ross Pen Roads and shot him at least eight times to the left side of his chest, abdomen and leg. Moses was also the cousin of Brandon Taylor, who had recently walked from two previous murders.
