Report Unable to Verify Some Factors, including Time

There were a few points that the investigators say that they were unable to verify because they were told that some of the information were classified and are matters of national security. According to the report, they were not able to verify the physical and mental conditions of the crew because of the high secrecy of the mission and that medical records are pending review. The report also pointed out that under its human factors section that the crew rest time prior to the mission is unknown because of the degree of confidentiality. Also, it is not known how long they were waiting for the order of executing the flight. One of the issues that have stuck out in this story is the sequence of events on the morning of February twenty-seventh.  As you heard in Tuesday’s briefing, Commander of the Belize Defence Force, Steven Ortega said that the mission was coordinated by JIOC. The report notes that the flight was authorized to carry out a mission to fight drug traffickers. In the synopsis of the report, it was noted that the team was unable to find out the time the flight was authorized, noting, “Undetermined local time.” While the report doesn’t say why that piece of information couldn’t be provided or verified, during Tuesday’s press briefing, Minister of National Security Michael Peyrefitte shared a timeline that starts at one-thirty-eight a.m., where JIOC reportedly made a request of General Ortega and at one-forty-five a.m., JIOC reached out Major Ramirez.
