Jasmine Hartin Loses Custody Battle for her Twins

Canadian national Jasmine Hartin has lost the custody battle for the five-year-old twins she shares with Andrew Ashcroft.  News Five has confirmed that on Wednesday, Director of the Belize Family Court, Dale Cayetano handed down a decision, granting legal custody of the children to Andrew Ashcroft. That decision was handed down at the Belize Family Court, and we have confirmed that Hartin and her attorney were absent from the hearing, despite being notified of the court date. Contrary to what is reported elsewhere, Hartin has not been stripped of visitation rights. We can confirm that Hartin’s attorney has already applied to the Supreme Court to dismiss the ruling, claiming judgmental bias on the part of the Family Court Director, who along with Commissioner of Police Chester Williams, was the subject of an alleged hit purportedly conspired by Hartin herself. The legal battle for the custody of the twins began ten months ago back in July 2021, following the shooting death of senior cop Henry Jemmott, for which Hartin was charged with Manslaughter.
