Why was Belize Absent from Regional Symposium on Crime in the Caribbean ?
Earlier this week we told you of the two-day regional symposium in Trinidad and Tobago involving regional leaders. Notably missing was a representative from Belize. We found it it interesting since the symposium was geared at discussing crime in the Caribbean region and involved member countries of CARICOM. Love News asked Minister of Home Affairs, Kareem Musa, on the reason for not attending the event.
At the symposium, Trinidad and Tobago’s Prime Minister, Dr Keith Rowley urged all stakeholders in the Caribbean to get on board in dealing with the crime situation in the region, warning that this is a war we cannot afford to lose. Also missing from the event are representatives from Antigua and Barbuda, Guyana, Belize and Haiti. The symposium was held under theme, “Violence as a Public Health Issue-The Crime Challenge”.
