Will there be justice for murdered Nigerian?

Francis CHukwu

Two of three men charged with the murder of a Nigerian taxi man will not proceed to trial. Egbert Daley and Jermaine Zuniga were charged with the murder of Francis Chukwu which occured in December 2010 on Pitter Street in Belize City. Daley and Zuniga had been on remand for eleven months but this morning they were released even before a PI could get underway because there was no evidence against the two.  The directive came from the office of the Director of Public Prosecution and this morning Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser told the men they are free to go. After checking that the men had no pending matter before the court, Daley and Zuniga rushed out of the court to greet relatives waiting outside the courtroom. Last year on Boxing Day, Chukwu was was shot fatally. The cabbie was found slumped behind the steering wheel of his vehicle that had swerved off Pitter Street. Robbery was ruled out as the motive since his personal belongings were found on him.

A third acussed, Kendale Greene, aka “Gentle” is due back in court on December sixteen for a preliminary enquiry for the charge of murder.

    Another nail in our national coffin. Can any nation survive that treats murder as a game? DOES IT EVEN DESERVE TO SURVIVE?

    If we don’t HANG ALL CONVICTED MURDERERS, our future is simply national doom.

    Next time you vote, don’t support your party over your country’s future. Vote for competent and honest people who will do their duty to SERVE THE PEOPLE and protect the Jewel. We must blame ourselves for the terrible shape Belize is in, because we have torn it down, one stupid vote at a time.

    The laws have not been changed regarding hangings however the agencies loom a big threat over us should we carry out these penalties. If Belize was more economically self sufficient and not need to rely on European markets for sale of our produce, we could tell them where to go. Europe being our main trade partners has an upper hand on us and will use that power against us to stop any Capital Punishment. We need to be real and not always point fingers at the politicians.

    It is free for all in Belize, go there to do all your killing and walk out scot free. This is really unfair victims don’t have any rights in this country. It is so sad when you can’t get any justice at all. These criminals that were let go, will kill again what will you say then, and stop calling Belize the “JEWEL’ the Jewel was back in the 50′s and 60′s call it what it really is “HELL”

    The reason why these murderes keep getting off, is because the gob can’t afford to house them for life, so the system let them walk and hope that street justice take care of the rest. What that does in effect, is that it portrays our fellow Bzeans as being uncivilize and ignorant, which is not good for tourism, and for the people who want to invest in the jewel. Our people need to demand that our leaders solve this fundamental issue.
