Phone Number for Bomb Threat Has Been Identified

Chester Williams

This week, bomb threats were called in to two government offices, forcing the workers out into the streets and delaying the provision of services to members of the public for several hours. Well today, police say they have linked a phone number to one of those threats. But the Commissioner says at this point they do not know if the caller was linked to ongoing union industrial actions. 


Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police

“We have looked at the issue of the bomb threat. We have obtained the number that made the call. We have also obtained a name. But you know that people do put fictitious information. Nonetheless we are looking at the number we have obtained with a view to ascertain the owner of the phone is. And if we can get to that information then the owner will have to give an account to how his or her number was able to call the treasury department in Belize City and report a bomb threat.”


Andrea Polanco

“There were speculations that these calls may have been linked to some sort of industrial action by one of the Unions. Are you investigating that angle?”


Chester Williams

“I listened to an interview given by Dean Flowers, the first Vice President of the P.S.U.  I think it is that same morning where he said they are leaving up to their members to determine the course of action they would like today. Maybe that could be one of their courses of action. It can be deduced that it is members of the unions who did it. Our deduction could be right, it could be wrong. But we have no evidence at this time today definitively that it came from a member of the union.”
