Vidal says recent violence is drug related

Senior Superintendent of Police, Marco Vidal, Commander of the Eastern Division South today said that they continue to work to quell the tensions in south side Belize City. On Monday the Commander said that the recent eruption of violence particularly in that area is gang related and has much to do with drug warfare. Today he told the media that the Police are working with persons of the gang intervention program but are also executing their own efforts.

“We are seeing this developing and as I said we will put this to a halt and certainly we are not going to be playing any games with anyone.”

“Are there plans to involve the mediators in the gang intervention program?

Sr. Supt. Marco Vidal – Commander, Eastern Division South

“The intervention and mediation program is a part of what we are doing. As you know there is this tension in the Jane Usher area and we habe brought inthe body that is responsible for intervention and mediation and I think we are making headway in that regard. We will continue with that. A lot of this is not public but that has been happening for some time.”
