By BBN Staff: Yesterday morning, Fareed Ahmad, a popular barber and football referee was killed in Hattieville village, Belize.
Ahmad and his family had been reportedly targeted for surveillance by local Belizean authorities last year.
Readers may recall that Ahmad’s brother, Nazir Ali Ahmad, a born Belizean, allegedly trained to become a terrorist and was killed in the Philippines in January of this year.
Reports suggest that since Nadir’s murder, the Ahmad’s family had come under heavy scrutiny from the Belize law enforcement agencies.
Fareed’s friends, family and colleagues have raised outrage social media since it is believed that Fareed was shot by a female member of the Special Assignment Team.
The Football Federation of Belize and the Football Refereeing Department, today, sent out their condolences to the family and friends of Fareed.
Fareed had joined the Belize District Association of Football Referees in 2009 and rose in prominence to become a National Referee by 2012.
He was a disciplined person who attended most of the monthly trainings in Belmopan for national referees.
