By Aaron Humes, Belmopan: Commissioner of Police Chester Williams has stated that the delay in charges being brought against former Ambassador Alexis Rosado was “not strange.”

Police investigated the complaint that the accuser had been molested and raped on multiple occasions since the age of 13, and the directive came last Wednesday from the Director of Public Prosecutions to lay charges.

“We have to appreciate the fact that victims, women, for the most part, may be reluctant to come forward based on the social stature of a person and there may be other factors that prevent them from coming forward…” the Commissioner explained.

As for the level of evidence before the Court, Williams said it was “mostly her word against his,” but the law provides that there need be no corroboration of the charge and that the least degree of penile penetration into the female sexual organ or other orifices is sufficient to prove the charge when done without consent. Ultimately, it is a matter for the Court at this stage.

Rosado’s next hearing is on July 6; he is out on bail.
