By Benjamin Flowers: Leader of the Opposition of the United Democratic Party, Moses “Shyne” Barrow has condemned the shooting death of Belize Defense Force soldier Jesse Escobar.

Barrow, joined the public outcry for justice on social media this afternoon offering his condolences for Escobar’s family and calling for swift, decisive action to be taken to address the matter.

“The soldier that executed unarmed off-duty BDF Jesse Escobar in front of his wife and children should be arrested and charged with murder at once,” Barrow said. “The video evidence makes clear this was a deliberate, heinous act of murder.”

Barrow stressed that justice for Escobar’s death is not a matter limited to his family or his village, Santa Familia, but the entire nation.

The matter has garnered comments from other parliamentarians such as Barrow’s colleague Tracy Taegar Panton, and even Prime Minister John Briceno, who said that he condemns all acts of brutality but will wait for an official report before he comments any further.
