Did Audrey Speak Out of Turn?

Earlier this year the agreement for mediation of the dispute between the Belize Grassroots Youth Empowerment Association (BGYEA) and the Government of Belize over the road reserve at Harmonyville on the George Price Highway neared resolution. This was confimed by BGYEA’s attorney, Audrey Matura-Shepherd. Most of the issues had been worked out and only the matter of building of roads remained to be addressed as well as legal costs. The mediation process of the dispute is closely guarded and Justice Courtney Abel has moved to cite Matura- Shepherd for contempt of court for premature revelations on the case. The case was scheduled for this morning but was adjourned to July, as Matura-Shepherd is currently involved in a criminal trial and Justice Abel is out of the country. Matura-Shepherd declined comment to reporters at court today.
