UDP Chairman reiterates refusal to comment on Rape Allegations Against Prominent UDP Lawyer

Tomorrow, February 16, will mark one month since two young women filed a complaint of rape against a prominent attorney in Belize City, and still no charges have been filed.  As a matter of fact, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has not indicated if there is sufficient evidence to warrant a charge against the well-known UDP lawyer.  Meanwhile, UDP Chairman, Michael Peyrefitte, would not delve into the topic, when asked if the perception of animal farm would apply to this matter.

Michael Peyrefitte, UDP Chairman: “I said before and I consistently say the difference between the Perez case and this case is that this case involves an active police investigation. I will not comment on that until the police and the DPP have both weighed in on it. I don’t know the DPP nor the Commissioner of Police to be people who are shy. I would say all those questions you direct at them because only they know.”

Love News understands that there are some complexities in the matter which would explain the delay by the DPP.
