Bert Vasquez tells Five’s Duane Moody he’s innocent

Bert Vasquez

Bert Vasquez has been in and out of the San Ignacio Magistrate’s Court for a slew of charges—up to thirteen offences against female minors in the West, including the Murder of Jasmine Lowe. But Vasquez has prior charges of a sexual nature before the Belize City Courts. Back in February of this year, Magistrate Hettie Mae Stewart committed Vasquez to stand trial at the Supreme Court for the Forcible Abduction of a sixteen year old minor. The minor alleged that shortly after eight o’clock on May thirteenth, 2011, she was waiting for a bus by the Pound Yard Bridge Area when she was accosted by Vasquez with a point thirty-eight pistol. She claims that Vasquez then forced her into a tinted vehicle and took her to the Vista Del Mar Area of Ladyville where he sexually assaulted her and hit her in the face with his gun; injuring her nose. Well today, an unrepresented Vasquez was taken before Justice Troadio Gonzalez. News Five sneaked a comment from Vasquez as he was being escorted in handcuffs to the holding cell before being taken back to Central Prison.

“Mister Vasquez you want to give any comment?”


Bert Vasquez, Charged with Forcible Abduction

“Just that I maintain my innocence, Duane Moody, and I hope the responsible media should do. And commenting to Amandala; totally bias.”


The case was adjourned to November fifteenth. Vasquez is also accused of the murder of thirteen year old Jasmine Lowe back in June. He has since also been charged in the San Ignacio Magistrate Court for eleven counts of common assault, one count of aggravated assault and one count of forcible abduction against young girls in the Twin Towns in the West.

    Vasquez is still alive? We’re still paying to protect and feed him? WHY?

  2. Truthbetold says:

    Where there’s smoke, there’s fire! Too many cases brought up against this sicko for him to claim innocence. This character deserves everything coming to him. Let’s hope the police can manage to get there story and charges in line and our weak DPP can get a prosecution.
    This scumbag needs to feel the same pain he inflicted on his victims and their families.
    A spoilt rotten brat, protected by his parents who carried some form of authority.
    Let the truth be told and serve him the maximum, he does not deserve to be on the streets again,

    i don’t understand how the other prisoner are laughing & having a good time with that rapist next to them. Anytime I would be close to him it would be straight buss-up face & kicks for him. It shows the type of cowards Belize have. They can shoot each other for looking at them too hard but they will laugh and joke while a serial rapist/murder is handcuff to them…smh

  7. marie says:

    Where is the police that should be escorting this Fool & why isn’t he shackled & handcuff? People do justice on your own because THE BZ SYSTEM WON’T.

  8. rod says:

    You hear what his name is Vasquez? who is the big man at BTL? Vasquez? Who is the PM’ friend?

Barrow have to go or more victims will be hurt at the hands of criminals.

  13. Hatari says:

    Just remember our 3% conviction rate . . . I’ll bet you dalla that he walks on all of the major charges. You know the police are going to screw it all up. They always do.

    All well dressed and where will they eventually go. If just money couldn’t talk so well.

  16. NERY says:

    I guess the whole nation wants him to be hanged but unfortunately that does not depend only on the courts decision. we must first liberate the laws or a rather say we must detach ourselves from englands law and then we can start hanging criminals……
