Flags flown at half-mast to mourn BDF soldiers

FLAG ORDERS 1

An order from the Office of the Prime Minister was issued this morning just after ten o’clock to have all Belize flags be flown at half-mast up until Friday evening when the last of the four BDF soldiers would have been laid to rest.  The order is for the flags currently hoisted on official buildings around the country.

An order from the Office of the Prime Minister was issued this morning just after ten o’clock to have all Belize flags be flown at half-mast up until Friday evening when the last of the four BDF soldiers would have been laid to rest.  The order is for the flags currently hoisted on official buildings around the country.  The tradition of half-mast is to depict a time of either mourning or remembrance.  For Belize, it is the mourning of the four Belize Defence Force soldiers who were killed in the line of duty on Thursday, February 27 when the helicopter they were in crashed in the Gales Point Lagoon.  The men, namely, Major Adran Ramirez, Major Radford Baizar, Corporal Yassir Mendez and Corporal Reinaldo Choco were reportedly a part of the drug bust along the Coastal Road that yielded 69 bales of cocaine inside a Gulfstream G2 executive jet.  Interestingly, the order from the Prime Minister comes more than 72 hours after the deaths of the men while there is yet to be an address to the nation on this incident from the Prime Minister.  The Government’s Press Office, however, did issue a short note of condolences last Friday.
