By Benjamin Flowers: Today Special Envoy for the Development of Families and Children H.E. Rossana Briceño issued a statement condemning acts of violence against Belize’s youth and expressing her condolences to the family and loved ones of Dwayne Darwin Gabourel, the 15-year-old boy tragically murdered over the weekend.

Briceño said that, as a mother, and as a Belizean, she mourned having seen the video circulating on social media of Gabriel, which was taken moments after he was shot.

“As he special envoy, I do not take this incident lightly. We condemn all those who engage in these hateful crimes. Our young men cannot and should not be living in a society of fear with the belief that any day could be their last,” Briceño said.

She called on all Belizeans to do their part to address the issues plaguing society that created the environment which caused Gabourel’s death, stressing that it will take individual and collaborative, community action to make the necessary changes necessary that will ensure this situation does not repeat itself.

“This has to stop,” Briceño added. “This violence we are seeing has no overnight fix, no pretty bandaid to cover up the gross injuries our country faces.”

She pledged that her office will work along with anyone, regardless of political affiliation, financial standing, race, or color, who is serious about making a change.

Gabourel was shot on Saturday, September 25 while buying at a shop at the corner of New Road and Pickstock Street, which sparked national outrage. He died of his injuries this morning.
