By Rubén Morales Iglesias: ‘I won’t resist any police arrest’ – said UDP Chairman Michael Peyrefitte of the intended protest without permission from the police on Tuesday.

Peyrefitte was talking at a virtual press conference on Monday.

Despite not receiving the required police permit, the opposition United Democratic (UDP) is planning a protest against high gas prices on Tuesday in front of the Shell gas station at the western entrance of Belize City.

“If the police decide that all of sudden, they do have enough resources to be out there to watch us and arrest us, take us to the Police Department and book us and fingerprint us, if they do happen to find the resources that they say they don’t have, well, I will tell you this, I won’t resist arrest,” Peyferitte said.

“If the police come and say ‘Mr Peyrefitte, you’re under arrest’, I will comply with the police orders and I will go along. I certainly won’t punch a cement wall and then blame the police for breaking my hand afterwards.”

Peyrefitte said that the Opposition is well within its right to protest.

“We are going to try to find a way of sending a message without breaking the law and still do it in the form of a protest that cannot be one that would technically require a permission from the police department,” said Peyrefitte.

“There are many ways to protest quite legally without the need of permission and that is what we would attempt to do.”
