By Breaking Belize News Staff: The relocation of a convicted terrorist to Belize has caused a stir among the United Democratic Party’s senior officials. Former Minister of National Security, John Saldivar, has voiced his opposition to the government’s decision and has raised concerns about the security risks it poses to the citizens of Belize.
Saldivar believes that the possibility of the prisoner returning to their terrorist ways and the potential retaliation from their former peers places the entire population in peril. He also criticized the lack of consultations before making this decision and called for constitutional reforms to ensure that such decisions are made after consulting with the representatives of the people in the National Assembly.
In a statement, Saldivar called the decision “abhorrent, incomprehensible, and utterly unacceptable.” He stressed that the nation already has many issues to deal with and that the law enforcement entities are already stretched, making it a very bad decision that sets a dangerous precedent.
The relocation of a convicted terrorist to Belize has sparked a heated debate and it remains to be seen how the government will respond to the concerns raised by the former Minister of National Security.
