By BBN Staff: The People’s United Party (PUP) issued a statement today condemning the attitude of the Ministry of National Security in face of the recent BDF helicopter tragedy.
The PUP insists that Major Adran Ramirez, Major Radford Baizar, Corporal Yassir Mendez and Corporal Reinaldo Choco be buried with full military honours.
“It is only right and just,” the PUP noted.
The PUP says that the lack of credible answers from the Ministry of National Security, in the face of what is now widely believed to be a cover up, is adding injury to the reputation of these fallen heroes.
“The People’s United Party joins with the rest of the nation in condemning the present attitude of the Ministry of National Security in the face of this national tragedy, a tragedy that has destroyed lives and families and has perhaps irreparably damaged the morale of the men and women who serve this country not only in the Belize Defense Force, but in all law enforcement arms of the country. We are concerned, as a Party and as a people, because all the information coming out of the BDF suggest gross incompetence and disregard for accepted protocols, at the highest levels in the Ministry of National Security,” the PUP expressed.
In addition, the party says that it does not trust the word of the current or former Ministers of National Security.
The PUP joins the nation in demanding a comprehensive, fully independent investigation to be carried out by skilled, credible parties including members from CARICOM in the Jamaica Air Wing.
“ We owe it to the fallen men of the BDF Air Wing,” the statement expressed.
The party says that the men and women in uniform deserve better and our nation expects no less.
