As you have heard in President Jimmy Morales’ address, the first of the five points is the one calling for the shooter to be brought to justice. As has become the norm, the ministries of both Belize’s Foreign Affairs and National Security have been very tight lipped with the media when it comes to the Belize/Guatemala relations and in keeping with that tradition, the only thing that the Chief Executive Officer, Retired Colonel George Lovell would say is that they are not prepared to give a statement on the investigation of the shooting.
“There will be an investigation and from the investigation then we will decide what course of action will be taken. I do not wish to make any statement now that will suggest that we believe that our law enforcement individuals may have done anything wrong. We do not know, we have not even looked at the details yet. So in terms of the Ministry of National Security making a statement along those lines we will not do so because we are not there yet.”
