Min. of National Security reviews case of punished cops

In other news from Belmopan the Ministry of National Security has begun a review of disciplinary actions taken against a number of police officers last year. According to a press release, the review, which comes as the result of complaints from officers who believe they have been dealt with unfairly, will be conducted by former Commissioner of Police, Sherman Zuniga. Zuniga’s report will be forwarded to the Ministry for review. In a release of its own this evening the United Democratic Party has condemned the Ministry’s action as being the latest of several attempts by the P.U.P. government to subvert the constitution. According to the U.D.P., any officer who feels he was wronged by the disciplinary process has ample constitutional means to pursue an appeal.
