Moses “Shyne” Barrow told to retract allegations against PM Briceño and pay one hundred thousand dollars in compensation

Posted: Friday, April 1, 2022. 7:28 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: The firm of Courtenay, Coye and Company, acting for Prime Minister John Briceño, has issued a sternly worded letter refuting comments made by Leader of the Opposition Moses “Shyne” Barrow on the show “Uncut” hosted by Jules Vasquez.

It demands that Barrow cease any republication of a video of certain statements made on the program; retract and apologize for certain statements and comments made during the nightly news programs and social media and pay compensation of $100,000 within two days of the receipt of their letter. The letter notes that the injury to the P.M.’s reputation caused by the publication and broadcast of the video increases each day the video continues to be published by himself and others.

The material complained of, briefly, concerns a response by Barrow to a suggestion by Vasquez that some feel ashamed that he, potentially a Prime Minister of Belize, has been convicted of a crime. While we will not repeat the specifics of that response, Courtenay, Coye et al. allege that Barrow “maliciously intended and designed” to imply that the Prime Minister, through his father, who was arrested and charged, also has involvement in certain activities which we will not mention here.

Needless to say, the Prime Minister denies all those assertions, and according to the lawyers, Barrow did not, during the interview, nor to date thereafter, said or done anything to retract or apologize for statements they consider “poisonous and false” and maligning both the Prime Minister and his late father, Elijio “Joe” Briceño.

If no response is forthcoming, the firm will commence legal action.

We have sought comment from the Leader of the Opposition.
