Ministry of Human Development clarifies inaccurate report in Amandala Newspaper

Posted: Thursday, November 7, 2019. 1:56 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Human Development, Social Transformation, and Poverty Alleviation released a statement this week, calling out the Amandala Newspaper for inaccurate reporting on an issue regarding two children being taken from their parents.

The Ministry said that the Amandala’s article “A Father Wants Answers”, dated October 17, 2019, contained erroneous assertions and noted that while it does not normally share any details on the removal of children for confidentiality reasons, it was necessary to put the statement out because there was widespread misinformation being circulated about the issue.

“Contrary to what was reported in the Amandala article, the children were not placed at Liberty Children’s Home in Ladyville but in foster care. The parents were informed that the children were placed in foster care. Periodic supervised visitations at the offices of the Department of Human Services were arranged,” the Ministry said.

The Ministry also chronicled the events that led to the removal of the children, subsequent medical issues that one of the children was discovered to be suffering from, and noted that the Department of Human Services was granted an Interim Care Order for the children by the Belize Family Court.
