By Aaron Humes: Belize National Teachers Union President Senator Elena Smith provided a short update on the situation of three teachers detained by police on Monday during a demonstration in Benque Viejo del Carmen Town, Cayo District.

The teachers were charged with attempting to set a bonfire with tires as has happened previously on the country’s major highways.

The trio were to appear in court today, Tuesday. but the case was put off to Thursday as the Magistrate was attending to personal issues.

As to their interactions with police, Smith said, “The police have a job to do and we won’t stop them from doing their job. But we have a job to do too.”

Smith added that teachers and public officers have braved increased intimidation in their ranks to march and fight for the unions’ proposals.
