Nazarenes demand Castro be charged for “rape threat”

Posted: Friday, December 27, 2019. 8:17 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: The regional and Belmopan Nazarene Churches are demanding formal criminal charges against Jumoke Castro for the threat of sexual assault directed against Shasta Wade, wife of Pastor Louis Wade, two weeks ago.

In a jointly letterheaded release, the church resolves to “join together with the overwhelming majority of Belizeans and social partners in demanding that appropriate criminal and disciplinary charges be brought against Mr. Castro, that there is a fair trial conducted at the highest professional standards, and a prompt and appropriate penalty is meted out to deter the scourge of violence against our women in all its forms.”

In a comment to journalists this evening, Louis Wade added, “As far as we are concerned, we are not satisfied with (Comissioner of Police Chester Williams’s) comments on not finding relevant charges. Our lawyers are saying differently and that will be ventilated in the new year.”

And he told us that no apology has been forthcoming – in Castro’s subsequent post he explicitly said he would make no such apology but did say he did not mean the original intent of the post.
