Chester to Mennonites: ‘Go to court’

Posted: Friday, September 24, 2021. 4:28 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: The Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams, maintains that he and his officers acted in the scope of the law to halt the Mennonite convoy that was traveling to Belize City on September 18 for an anti-vaccination protest.

Responding to reports that villagers will be making complaints about the incident, the Commissioner said Professional Standards Branch will be happy to take them.

But, he added, it is best they go to court as provided for by Section 22 of the Constitution in regard to alleged violations of sections 3 to 19, or fundamental rights and freedoms of the population.

It was clear where the Mennonites were going and what they wanted to do and it was up to Police to stop them, he concluded.
