Chester Williams: ‘Blue Creek is far more reckless than motorcade”

Across the country, political motorcades are still being held, despite serious objections and public health concerns being raised by the Belize Police Department.  Over the weekend there were motorcades in Jalacte and Silver Creek villages held by the People’s United Party, as well as the United Democratic Party.  While arrests have been made in respect of previous gatherings, including a recent incident in Red Bank, ComPol Williams says that the incident in Blue Creek was more reckless in nature because of the mass gathering.

“This whole issue with this political climate where politicians also believe that they are immune from prosecution, I have been harping to my officers to enforce the Quarantine Regulations despite who the person or persons are who are in violation.  And while I have seen where some sort to draw comparisons between Blue Creek and the motorcades, I still believe that what happened in Blue Creek is far more outrageous and reckless than the motorcade.  That is no consolation than those who organize those motorcades are not supposed to be looked and see if there is any violation.”
