Police Presence Ramps Up in Orange Walk Amidst BSCFA and BSI/ASR Negotiations

And if you’re worried about the association blocking roads or burning tires, you aren’t the only one. Today, the Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams, headed north to ensure that things stayed as safe as possible. Police have been placed along the main streets of Orange Walk Town and portions of the Phillip Goldson Highway heading into the town. Williams says he hopes that law and order prevail and touched on the need for the police’s presence amidst ongoing negotiations with the BSCFA and BSI/ASR. 

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: “I came this morning for the talk show on Love FM and I’m going to Orange Walk. Again what transpired yesterday was the demonstration by the BSCFA and we just do what we needed to do in terms of policing the event. I know that some people were saying that the police were siding with the factory because we do have police officers at every entrance to the factor as well as on the highways but again we’re not there to side with the factory neither are we there to side with the cane farmers. We’re there to uphold law and order and as much as yes you have the BSCFA who is aggrieved and have said that they’re not going to deliver cane to the factory they cannot deprive the other associations who may wish to deliver cane to the factory from doing so. And so we’re just there to facilitate those other cane farmers who may wish to deliver their product for them to do so in an environment that is free from obstruction.”
