Briceno weighs in on the financial challenge of judiciary

The fiscal year 2018/2019, saw a decrease in the allocations of funds to carry out the execution of justice. The total amount that was allocated to the judiciary was less than one percent of the national budget. Love News asked the Leader of the Opposition, John Briceno, to weigh in on the financial challenge faced by the judiciary.

Leader of the Opposition John Bricenio: “Well I don’t think it is a matter of just increasing for increasing sake. I think that we need to look at what are the needs of the Judiciary and if there is a need for more funding then I believe that we should give it to them because as it is right now the whole basis of our Democracy is that you are innocent until proven guilty and there are many instances where we keep Belizeans for a very long time in jail and that is going against a fundamental right for us Belizeans so if the Judiciary can present a need for more resources then I think we should give it to them.”

The media had pressed the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Wilfred Elrington, who had represented the Attorney General at the Opening of the Supreme Court, for the amount of funds that will be allocated to the Judiciary for 2019-2020; however, Elrington was unable to provide this information.
