By Rubén Morales Iglesias: “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 a statement by the opposition United Democratic Party posted on social media.
“We extend condolences to the Uh family and friends and offer legal or any other form of support that may be needed to seek justice for Derrick.”
Uh died after being left in a police van unattended for hours this past Sunday.
“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, bringing more attention to the death of the young Corozal man.
The UDP statement said that it’s time all Belizeans “let the Belize Police Department hear our cry, “JUSTICE for Derrick”. The reckless, negligent officers and the Belize Police Department must be held accountable for a young life meeting such a tragic end.”
