Former P.U.P. Party Leader Remembers Ramon Cervantes Sr.

Said Musa

Earlier we told you that the body of a woman has been found two hundred yards away from the shallow grave that Ramon Cervantes Senior was buried in. The Cervantes murder has attracted national attention. Today, former Prime Minister Said Musa, a colleague of the deceased Orange Walk businessman and erstwhile politician Cervantes Senior, shared his thoughts on the brutal slaying of his fellow party member.  While Musa firmly condemned the merciless killing, he described Cervantes as a man of the people, well liked by residents and constituents of the Orange Walk District.  The senseless murder, he says, is a harsh blow not only to the Cervantes family but also to the country of Belize.


Said Musa, Former Party Leader, P.U.P.

“It a very shocking thing that has happened to Mr. Ramon Cervantes, I mean to be abducted, to be kidnapped and murdered and in the course of his murder he was badly beaten up, tortured in fact. It should shock the conscience of the nation because here this man was a public figure for many years, a mayor actually he was a school teacher for many years and a senator as well. And now his son is running, he is in the political arena. I knew Ramon very well from my previous years in politics, under Mr. Price in particular. He was always a very gentle man, very quiet, a quiet disposition a very honest hard working Belizean and the whole thing is very shocking to me. And of course you give me an opportunity to display publicly my sympathy to Mrs. Cervantes, that lady is a fine lady if I ever want to speak about a fine lady she certainly is. All his children..outstanding people very honest hard working Belizeans. For this to happen to this man going out to do his work like any other cane farmer, it just brings anger in fact to anybody who think about it especially myself who has known Ramon many years. In fact I must tell youth that he was a client of mine at this very time of his death.”


The People’s United Party has offered its condolences to the Cervantes family and, in a statement issued earlier, also condemned the cold-blooded murder.
