Foreign Minister says police not involved in Fareed Ahmad’s murder

Posted: Saturday, January 6, 2018. 10:22 am CST.

By BBN Staff: On Tuesday, WPC Michelle Brown was charged for the murder of Belizean barber and referee Fareed Ahmad.

Since then, the family has reported receiving threats in text messages. Some worrying text messages have also been circulating on social media and on several Belizean news agencies indicating a “hit list” held by some members of the Special Assignment Team.

The contents of the messages include one member telling another member of the team to “keep your mouth shut,” and “the boss done handle yuh.”

The Belize Police Department issued a release yesterday, however, explaining that the investigation is still on going and that the department is looking at all angles.

Yesterday, in a televised interview with Channel 5, Foreign Minister, Wilfred Elrington said not all violent deaths are murder : “The fact that people are found dead, as a result of violent activity, does not necessarily mean that they were murdered.  Murder has a very specific connotation in law and people could get killed in consequence of actions by others where they are defending themselves, or people could die in consequence of suicide, you know.  So it is not correct to suggest that every violent death is a murder.  I think what would be more proper is to use the expression that people seem to have died from violent means, but to conclude that it is a murder.”

Elrington also explained that there is no evidence to suggest that the police department has any complicity in the incident.
