Accused Cops Taken to Court Un-Handcuffed

And while the Commissioner reported that Nah did not have his phone to be sending those messages, the media did question about the handcuffing process where the officers involved were not cuffed but only the civilians. This refers particularly to when the men were brought to the Belmopan Police Station.

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: “There is this thing where we believe that every prisoner should be handcuffed but the truth is the Summary Jurisdiction Offences Act I think section 99 of that act clearly states you only handcuff a prisoner where there’s a risk of that prisoner escaping or causing harm to you or other persons and when officers escort prisoners to court I don’t tell them what to do from what not to do. I would simply expect that they’re going to do the right thing in so doing but at the end of the day I do agree that if any of the prisoners are handcuffed then all should be handcuffed if not then none.”
