Senator Smith: “We Must Call Out Domestic Violence No Matter Who it Is”

Elena Smith

Elena Smith, the senator responsible for trade unions and civil society, is adding her voice to those condemning domestic violence. When we caught up with Senator Smith at an event in Belize City today, we asked her for comments on the recent allegations against her parliamentary colleague, Patrick Faber.

“Well of course it does, and I am not going to go into any back and forth in terms of their political, their inside or whatever they are going through. But, looking at matter of domestic violence, we must all call it out. No matter who is doing it, we must call it out and we must stand against it. And so, from that view point, I will say that I am not in support of any of that kind of behavior. I will never support that, and we have to put things in place to ensure that our women and men are protected from violence.”
