Was there interference by ComPol with San Pedro case?

Silvia Teul

Nineteen year old Silvia Teul, a resident of the airstrip area of San Pedro, appeared in Magistrates Court today where she was arraigned on multiple charges stemming from an altercation with a female officer inside the San Pedro Police Station on Saturday.  Shortly after three o’clock that morning, police detained Lorena Montes, who was involved in a physical exchange with another patron, identified as Roxanne Canul, inside Daddy Rocks Night Club.  A group of Montes’ friends, including Teul, who police say appeared to be heavily intoxicated, visited the station to inquire about her detention.  While there, Teul was asked to leave because of the unruly manner in which she behaved. Teul refused to leave the station, and began hurling insults and obscenities at the officers.  Special Constable Lisa Castillo then attempted to arrest her but was attacked and choked in the process.  With the assistance of other officers, Teul was eventually restrained and later charged for the crimes of assaulting a police officer, use of indecent words, common assault and resisting lawful arrest.  In the absence of a magistrate, a Justice of the Peace, who witnessed the arraignment, denied Teul bail.  It is alleged that Commissioner of Police, David Henderson, then ordered that she be granted bail; however, Officer Commanding the San Pedro Police Formation, Assistant Superintendent Vienne Robinson upheld the decision of the Justice of the Peace.  Teul was remanded at the station until this afternoon when she appeared before Magistrate Sherigne Rodriguez. Henderson refused to comment on the incident and whether Teul is a close family friend.

    ComPol should explain to the public what was his interest in this case. He is supposed to be above suspicion, but right now he is not. Tampering with legal cases is VERY suspicious.

    Another point, here is more proof to my belief that not much good happens away from home between midnight and sunrise.

    There is some confusion here and it seems to lean to the direction that the ComPol has some personal interest in this matter. It will be interesting to track the career of this ASP from here on in. Given the history of vindictiveness and pettiness of authorities in Belize, I will not be surprised if there are some changes made to discomfort this officer. She will be “reprimanded” for going against her superior, even if she may be right and he is wrong, and for “shaming” him in public, even though he deserves it!
    I await, holding my breath!

    Another reason to enact the recommendations set out by the Crooks Report. We need a professional, experienced Commissioner of Police. Compol Henderson has proven that he does not have the abilities or will necessary to lead our police department. He is totally inept and this latest incident in San Pedro shows his true colors. And who is next after him, I’m sure that the politicians will find another unqualified yet politically compliant puppet within the ranks of fat-bellied bureaucrats.

    Remember “Henderson” the world is watching your actions just like they watch all those who are corrupt. Ask John Z…
