By BBN Staff: Today, five Belizeans residing in Florida were sworn-in as Justices of the Peace by the Attorney General Michael Peyrefitte at the Consulate of Belize in Florida.
The men and women who have answered the call to serve are: Tracy Gomez, Deborah D. Duncan, Glenda Lewis, Jason Guild and Philip Mckay.
According to a release from GOB’s press office, having Belizeans serving as Justices of the Peace in Florida will help to facilitate Belizeans needing urgent assistance in authenticating documents and will alleviate the burden of travelling to Belize to resolve their paperwork.
The newly sworn-in Justices of the Peace will receive additional minor training in immigration and land-related matters to preempt delays.
Consul General of Belize in Florida, Janine Sylvestre was present during the ceremonies.
