Police in P.G. Accused of Beating Young Man

Leray Simon

Leray Simon of Punta Gorda Town is tonight hoping someone, anyone, in the Belize Police Department will listen to his complaint of alleged brutality. Information reaching News Five is that Simon was detained on Sunday night by police in P.G., who allegedly beat him while in the cell at the police station. As seen in this photograph provided to us, Simon sustained a severe injury to his right eye. It is not clear what he was being held for. Simon says other Punta Gorda officers refused to take his statement, as did officers in Belmopan at the headquarters and the Professional Standards Branch. The question is of course why? We also understand that police have refused him a medico-legal form to take to his doctor. We will have more in Tuesday’s newscast.
