Charge dismissed against Special Constable who assisted Gambis

John Myvett

Just over a year ago, Special Constable John Myvett, was on duty at the Belize City Magistrates Court when Keon Williams, also known as Gambis, was denied bail on a charge of Committing an Unnatural Crime against a fourteen year old boy. But Williams never made the trip to Hattieville and later alleged that he paid Myvett two thousand, eight hundred and sixty-five dollars to secure him bail at the Supreme Court. Following an internal investigation, Myvett was charged with Extortion and Obtaining Services by Deception. In court this morning, his attorney, Michael Peyreffitte pointed out that the matter has been before the court for over a year and that today the Preliminary Inquiry should have started, but the prosecution was not ready to proceed. As a result, Magistrate Kayla Teck dismissed the case and Myvett was free to go. While the case only ended today, a letter was presented in court back in September 2010, which was addressed to Myvett, informing him that his suspension had been lifted effective July twenty-seventh since his case had been dismissed. That letter was based on a directive from the DPP that had not been acted upon by the courts.

    We are suppose to respect the law, the government officials and the court system. HOW? it is so corrupt and biased no ordinary, law abiding person has a chance. An incompetant attorney can get these criminals off as trickey dickey repeatedly shows. No one pursues the police! Who did not pursue the case? the government? protecting its own? where did the money go? how long has it been going on and how often is this happening? what a sad situation for this country.

    Cops stick together like !@#$ to a blanket. The convition rate for bent coppers must be almost as bad as bent Politicians. Which, considering how many of both are in Belize is a shockingly small figure!!!!!

    Best take out the following ffrom the National Anthem:

    Land of the Free

    Make the Despots Flee,

    as Belize is not a free country, and never will be wile the despots are in power….

    Could be looking at changing the bit about “by the Carib Sea’ to ‘by the Oil slicked sea’ soon too……
