Coast Guard officers arrested

COMPOL 7NEWS

Six members of the Ministry of National Security were arrested and charged for violating curfew regulations. Two police officers were arrested and charged on Monday night whilst off-duty.

Six members of the Ministry of National Security were arrested and charged for violating curfew regulations. Two police officers were arrested and charged on Monday night whilst off-duty. The latest law enforcement personnel to be arrested also for curfew breach are four Coast Guard; two from Punta Gorda and two from Belize City.

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: Those two officers appeared before the court yesterday. As you rightly said they were charged for being out during curfew hours and again we have tried as best as we can not to discriminate in terms of how we enforce the state of emergency regulations. May I say four Coast Guard members have also been charged under the state of emergency regulation; two in Punta Gorda and Two in Belize City and that goes to show that there’s no exception even when it comes to members of the security forces. If they are out during the curfew hours, they’re not working they must have a valid reason to be out and if the reasons for them being out does not fall within the state of emergency’s regulation then they are in violation and they are not immune from prosecution and so in those six cases those officers have been charged.”

According to COMPOL, officers must lead by example as they are not immune to prosecution.
