Cops before Courts for Extortion

Joseph Myvett

The Professional Standards Branch continues to investigate multiple reports of police misconduct, including two cases of extortion. Sergeant Lenancio Bol and Constable Daniel Requeña of Belize City were arraigned in September for extorting a businesswoman out to help her friends while two other officers, Samuel Elijio and Allen Castillo are charged in a case in San Ignacio. Head National Crimes Investigation Branch ACP Joseph Myvett indicated that the accused are before the courts and will be made to pay for their actions.

Police expect to have further updates from the P.S.B. in future briefings.
