Man detained in relation to murdered UB Student

Norval Gilbert Belisle

The murder of a prominent UB student, Norval Gilbert Belisle, has left the community in shock. Belisle was cut to the throat with a broken glass bottle as he was socializing on Friday night on a street in the Las Flores area.  According to police, Belisle was with his friends Drachir Reid, Kirk Morgan and Herbert Francis when they were approached by a group of about four Creole descent men where a fight started during which Belisle received the injury to the throat. Belisle died whilst undergoing treatment at the K.H.M.H. We were told that police had detained one man in connection with this incident. So far we were unable to determine if any charges were levied against him. The Belisle family told News Five on Monday that the man in police custody is closely connected to them. In a separate shooting that Friday night around eleven fifteen, Police Officer Errol Jones was shot to the right side of his armpit. In that same shooting Edmund Pook Jones was shot to the right side of his chest and remains in a critical condition. The two Jones and Richard Ramdas were near a shop in Belmopan when they were approached by a Hispanic man who accused them of stealing a bike. The man left and returned with another man and proceeded to attack the trio. A struggle followed and the second man pulled out a gun and fired five shots, causing the injuries.

    Give the murderer a fair and impartial conviction, then hang him. WE MUST CARRY OUT CAPITAL PUNISHMENT TO PROTECT THE JEWEL. Maybe after most of the gangsters have been hanged, and the survivors are cowed by the threat of hanging, we can adopt European-style leniency [I never would!], but we are not close to that level of security yet.

    Take a life, lose your life, must be the rule in the Jewel.
