By Aaron Humes: Following a call for Faber’s resignation from the Chairman of the United Democratic Party (UDP) Michael Peyrefitte and an absolute and strong condemnation of any form of abuse against women by UDP Deputy Leader Hugo Patt, luminary Tracey Taegar-Panton issued a statement of her own after a police report was made of alleged domestic abuse by Patrick Faber on his fiancée.
Taegar-Panton referred to a statement she made six months ago on the topic, reiterating that it remains her position then and now and that she does not condone and will hold to account those who do commit domestic abuse.
For the record, this is that statement as we reported on June 2, 2021: “Domestic abuse most definitely is in the top five on my priority list. We have to hold ourselves accountable as we need to hold each other accountable. We need to condemn, in the harshest terms, any acts of abuse against another person. While we hold perpetrators to account, we must find meaningful ways to support victims and provide help for perpetrators to rehabilitate,” she said.
Taegar-Panton added that violence, in all its forms, is a community problem that requires all Belizeans to do their part in the fight and committed that, as a member of the UDP and an elected member of the House of Representatives, she will be doing hers.
The next move of Taegar-Panton and others in the UDP may depend on what Faber says tomorrow, Monday, at a press conference at UDP headquarters.
