By Aaron Humes: A few days ago, the home of the Prime Minister’s son, Shyne Barrow in the Buttonwood Bay area of Belize City was broken into.
Officer Commanding Precinct 4, Senior Superintendent Lynden Flowers said police are still investigating and have detained some persons for questioning.
We learned of the burglary only because one of the people detained spoke today to complain of police brutality. Alberto Ramos is a self-employed 49 year old who sells hand-crafted jewelry in the park in front of Barrow’s house.
He told us that he was held for 48 hours and questioned without success as to what he knew; upon leaving the police station, someone hit him from behind and he was dragged back in.
Flowers says the investigation into the theft continues.
As to the police brutality allegation, Flowers says they will look into it.
