Police Investigating Latest Allegation at the B.D.F.?

Still on the B.D.F….On Monday night, we told you about the press release sent out by the Ministry of National Security on the conclusion of the investigation of the allegations of extortion, mal treatment, sexual assaults and other misconduct at the Belize Defense Force. In that release, the ministry acknowledges that the investigation found some wrongdoing and negligence.  As we reported, we wanted an interview with someone from the Ministry or the B.D.F., but we have been running in circles to get someone to speak on this matter but we will keep trying. But in other B.D.F. related news, we reported on the allegations that there was a rape at the Price Barracks compound where a female officer was raped inside her room by one of her superiors.  Now, as we’ve shared, that incident allegedly happened between six to eight weeks ago. And there were some reports that the matter was being dealt with internally. Latest information from the B.D.F. is that the matter “is still under investigation with the police.” We note that as far as our records indicate there was no report of this particular incident in the Belize Police Department’s daily press releases. Today, we reached out the C.E.O. in the Ministry of National Security Enriquez for comment also on this issue and he referred us back to the B.D.F. We’ll keep following this story.
