“Would like to personally apologize to the children and grand children of Nora Parham. Our nation owes them an apology. I do so on behalf of our Leader of Opposition, on behalf of our Deputy leader, for the United Democratic Party, on behalf of all of us in this house, may her story live on so that we may be reminded that such injustices, such atrocity, such a miscarriage of justice never, ever, be allowed to happen in Belize again. Madam Speaker, please be assured that we lend our full support to this motion. While those upon us on this side believe there should be some sort of compensation to the family, Dean assured me that healing must come, and they have waited as a family for over fifty years for healing to come. So, we respect the wish of the family. Know that you continue to being our collective conciseness, in our thoughts and prayers, as we use her story to teach the valuable lessons we must learn as a nation.”
