By BBN Staff: Today the National AIDS Commission, the Office of the Special Envoy for Women and Children, and the Ministry of Human Development, Social Transformation and Poverty Alleviation jointly issued a statement following the death of Ulysease Roca.
Roca, who was found dead in his home days ago, had recorded that he was recently abused by members of the Belize Police Department.
The statement read, “The alleged physical violence against Mr. Roca Terry by law enforcement officers is unacceptable, a gross violation of human rights, and must be vehemently condemned.”
“As such, the Commissioner of Police is called to thoroughly investigate and ensure that justice is being served. As Belizeans, it is our human right to feel safe and free from all forms of violence. No one should be devalued, denied, and treated as a second-class citizen,” it continued.
The statement concluded by expressing that these crimes and the culture of impunity that sustains them can be prevented through accountability and compliance.
