Minister Musa Says Authorities Closing in on Sea Pirates

Kareem Musa

The cops are closing in on the sea pirates – that’s what Minister Kareem Musa told the media today.  He says that they are treating the issue of piracy seriously. According to Musa, they are gathering the evidence needed and he believes that they will be able to hold some of the criminals accountable.


Kareem Musa, Minister of Home Affairs

“The issues of the sea pirates, as well as the home invasion issue, are two very concerning topics that we in the police department are looking at very closely. I can tell you that in terms of the sea piracy, we are very close, in my opinion, to identifying the suspects. It is just about gathering evidence and we have been gathering concrete evidence and it is my hope that we can start pursuing those individuals because this is something that cannot continue. As you know we live in a large geographic, our land mass is huge but imagine trying to cover that sea mass, it is equally difficult for us to cover such a large area. But that is not stopping us and we are upping the ante and we are working very closely with the coast guard in southern Belize. We are getting some good leads and it is my hope that it can lead to some arrest very shortly.   There are actually three groups we are looking at and we are narrowing this particular incident down. But there are a band of pirates and we need to gather information against them so that we can make these arrests and that is exactly what we are doing.”
