Five Belizeans living in Florida, USA, were sworn-in as Justices of the Peace by the Attorney General of Belize Michael Peyrefitte yesterday. The new Justices of the Peace include Tracy Gomez, Deborah D. Duncan, Glenda Lewis, Jason Guild and Philip Mckay. They will receive additional minor training in immigration and land-related matters so as to preempt delays. According to the government, having Belizeans serving as Justices of the Peace in Florida will help to facilitate Belizeans needing urgent assistance in authenticating documents and will alleviate the burden of travelling to Belize to resolve their paperwork. The ceremony was held at the Consulate of Belize in Florida where the Consul General of Belize in Florida Janine Sylvestre was present.
