By Aaron Humes: Kareem Harvey says police officers brutalized him during his detention near the end of 2022; they accused him of assaulting one of them.
In Magistrate’s Court on Monday, however, Harvey declined the partial disclosure given him in preparation for his trial taking place in a few weeks.
Harvey was handed three pages of partial disclosure but expressed the need to wait for his full disclosure instead of accepting partial disclosure as he wanted all the evidence the police planned to rely on in proving the case against him.
The presiding Magistrate made a note for her records and his case was further adjourned for February 20, 2023, when full disclosure is expected to be provided to Harvey.
Harvey was initially arraigned on Monday, December 19, 2022, for assaulting a police officer and keeping ammunition without being granted a gun license but was remanded to the Belize Central Prison. Ten days later he was offered and met bail in the Supreme Court of $15,000 and surety subject to the usual conditions including a nighttime curfew.
