By BBN Staff:  As public outrage continues to soar, the third-party umbrella organization Belize Peace Movement (BPM) has joined the list of organizations to condemn a post made on social media by Jumoke Castro, son of Transport Minister Edmond Castro, where he threatened sexual violence against a member of the media.

In responding to a post made by Plus Television’s Louis Wade, Castro threatened that he and several others would sexually assault Wade’s wife Shasta, who manages Plus TV. The BPM said that it condemned Castro’s remarks in the highest, and urged Wade to press charges against Castro for making them.

“Violence is at an all-time high and the BPM demands greater actions from authorities to ensure all people’s rights are protected and perpetrators are held accountable so we can restore good order and peace in Belize,” the organization said. “BPM calls on the Minister of National Security, the Belize Police Department and the Judiciary to exercise due diligence and the rule of law against all perpetrators of violence, irrespective of their social status and without fear or favor.”

Channel 7 News, Channel 5 News and even the United Democratic Party Secretariat have all issued statements condemning the act as well.
