Admiral John Borland, Accused of Abusing Staff Member

Updated: April 24, 2017

Last week a member from the Belize Coast guard filed a police report against Admiral John Borland, the head of the Coast Guard accusing him of verbal abuse and threat to life. Now while Love News has received details of the incident, we are unable to release it as the complainant is still discussing the way forward with his lawyer. Love News understands that the matter has been forwarded to the desk of the Commissioner of Police and will be dealt with internally. The complainant is seeking court action, and as we tried to get official comment on the matter, we have been reliably informed that no such comment will be forthcoming until later in the week when Admiral Borland returns from a trip to Veracruz Mexico and comments on the matter.
