Opposition Leader Alleges Cabinet Involvement in Drug Trade

Opposition Leader Alleges Cabinet Involvement in Drug Trade

Moses Shyne Barrow, Belize’s Opposition Leader, made some serious allegations earlier today when he spoke of the drug trade situation in Belize.  The UDP leader confidently told the media in a press conference that there are members of the Briceno Cabinet who are involved in the narcos situation that has infiltrated northern Belize.  While Barrow would not pinpoint who exactly those players are, he did get as specific as legally possible.  His comments this afternoon come at a time when security forces in Belize are strategizing enforcement in the north.

Moses “Shyne” Barrow, Leader of the Opposition: “Either the Prime Minister will be an expert to help us combat the narco infiltration or he will be oblivious or complicit because there are whispers that at least two members of his cabinet are heavily involved in narco trafficking. Right there in the north. These are facts. I know that the media hears it the same way that I hear it. To prevent from any litigation I will not venture to say the names of the suspected Cabinet members that are affiliated with narco trafficking but the same way the Prime Minister said that high officials in the UDP were responsible for landing planes I can tell you that high officials in the People’s United Party are responsible for the narco infiltration in the north. Corozal specifically. So the country of Belize needs to be on high alert. We are a narco state. You might not hear about the planes landing but they’re still landing. I understand that they’re landing at the airports. I won’t say which airport. I won’t say if it’s international or if it’s local but again this is the reality of our country, the executions will continue. The narco dominance will continue. The narco element wants to make certainly the north of Belize equivalent to what is happening in Quintana Roo, Chetumal. That is what we are faced and what is the solution ? I am not the Prime Minister. I do not have the National Security Council. I do not sit on the National Security Council. I am not invited to any of the meetings. I don’t have any of the apparatus that the Prime Minister has so he needs to talk to the nation. Assure us. Comfort us. Tell us what the solution is to prevent Belize from continuing as a narco state because that is what is happening. Matus executed, the other gentleman in Lake I executed all these executions, bodies disappearing after bodies disappearing go back to the Ramnarace, that was a narco execution committed by, allegedly, a member of the Belize Police Department.”
