By Rubén Morales Iglesias: “The Opposition offers its deepest sympathies to the family of Derrick Uh in what was a senseless avoidable tragedy at the hands of the State,” said a statement by the Leader of the Opposition Shyne Barrow.

“We grieve the loss of this son of Corozal who was deprived of his basic human rights and his life in the custody of the State.”

Uh died on Sunday after being left unattended in a police van for more than 12 hours this past Sunday.

Leader of the Opposition Barrow called on the Government of Belize to “do everything to ensure no other Belizean will ever perish while in custody of those charged with protecting our citizens and administering justice.”

“A thorough investigation must be immediately conducted to hold those culpable of Derrick Uh’s death accountable and prosecute them to the full extent of the law,” he said.

Barrow’s call follows another statement by the opposition United Democratic Party (UDP) posted on social media earlier on Monday.

“The United Democratic Party demands a transparent and impartial investigation into the death of young Derrick Uh and emphatically condemns the gross negligence of his arresting officers that resulted in hours of inhumane torture and eventual death,” said the UDP statement.

“Fourteen hours, imagine being shackled in a hot prison box for fourteen hours, crying out for help as your life force slowly slips away. Nobody could have heard Derrick’s cry in that dark van on a sweltering summer day,” said the statement.

“The reckless, negligent officers and the Belize Police Department must be held accountable for a young life meeting such a tragic end.”
