Alexis Rosado’s resignation as Ambassador Will Have No Bearing on I.C.J. Case

While the police believe there is a case for Rosado to answer in a court of law, Prime Minister John Briceño says that Rosado’s resignation as Ambassador and co-agent on the Belize team at the I.C.J. will have no bearing on the presentation we make or the result of the case. This is despite the fact that Rosado was appointed to the post based on his seniority and extensive background on the Belize/Guatemala dispute. But last week, he was charged with a slew of sexual offenses in the Belmopan Magistrate’s Court. Here’s how Prime Minister Briceño spoke about the new developments on this matter.

“Alexis Rosado played a very, very important role – a senior role in the work we’ve been doing in preparing our case to the I.C.J., but as co-agents, what they do is they collate, they put all of the papers together. We have different attorneys dealing with the different issues and then they put it together and present it to the I.C.J. Fortunately, we don’t have one, we have co-agents, meaning that there’s more than one. The other co-agent is Ambassador Assad Shoman, a senior ambassador when it comes to – and probably the most knowledgeable person when it comes to the issue of the Belize-Guatemala dispute. So no, it will not in any way affect us. My heart goes out to Alexis Rosado on the issues that he’s facing, but like in everything, you are – our rule of law is based on the presumption of innocence until you are proven guilty.”
