By Breaking Belize News Staff: Three police officers, charged with the wilful oppression of a man and a woman have learned that they will stand trial in the Supreme Court.

The officers, Jason Shaw, Leslie Martinez, and Anthony Villamil, are being represented by attorney Oscar Selgado, who was not with them as they appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court because he had another matter in the Supreme Court.

Nonetheless, their preliminary inquiry continued and the prosecution submitted that it had a total of 22 witness statements, 2 exhibits including 2 CDs, warrants for the arrest of the 3 interdicted cops, and notes of evidence for interviews conducted with the accused cops in the presence of a Justice of the Peace.

After the prosecution’s submission, the Magistrate ruled that the men had a prima facie case to answer to and committed them to stand trial in the January 2023 session of the Supreme Court.
