By Aaron Humes: Leader of the Opposition Moses “Shyne” Barrow has declined to apologize to Prime Minister John Briceño, who is suing him for statements made on Channel 7 current affairs program ‘Uncut’ on Wednesday, saying he was never referring to him directly.

Barrow was responding to a question from Vasquez concerning a suggestion that some feel ashamed that he (Barrow), potentially a Prime Minister of Belize, was convicted in the US.

Barrow told us that he was referring to the fact that both Prime Minister Briceño and former Prime Minister George Price “have both overcome accusations and associations to become Prime Minister of Belize and I will do the same, I will overcome associations, accusations and past youthful indiscretions to become the next Prime Minister of Belize by the grace of [God].”

For the record, Barrow said, he clarified his remarks later in the interview to make clear he was not referring to Prime Minister Briceño in the passage subsequently complained of.

Briceño’s attorneys, Courtenay, Coye and Company, have demanded a full apology, an undertaking not to repeat the allegations complained of as ‘defamatory’, and $100,000 in compensation.

Channel 7 and Vasquez for their part have apologized for airing the remarks and not doing enough to correct Barrow during the program.
