By BBN Staff: The Ministry of National Security issued a statement today on the recent murder of five Belizeans who went on a fishing expedition in the Swallow Caye area of Belize.
The Ministry shares its sincere condolences with the grieving families.
The Ministry asserts that all is being done to investigate and bring to justice those responsible for this heinous crime.
“The Ministry, however, reassures the public that there is no indication that there is any generalized threat to public safety,” the statement says.
The Ministry notes that there is a tendency for crime to spike after reports of illicit activities related to the transshipment of drugs that are destined for North America but find its way on Belize’s shores.
The Ministry has observed that each time there are reports of the transshipment of drugs through the country there are residual effects and consequences.
