‘My mother’s child:’ Commissioner of Police’s brother in hot water for alleged social media defamation

Posted: Thursday, April 13, 2023. 10:46 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: Arthur Williams, brother of Commissioner of Police Chester Williams, has apparently been on something of a crusade against the Belize Police Department and its officers assigned to their home village of Seine Bight, Stann Creek District.

A recent social media post by Arthur Williams led a police officer to file a complaint leading to charges under the Cyber Crime Act.

When the report reached the desk of the Commissioner of Police, he gave his officers the green light to detain and charge his brother.

On Wednesday in an interview, he said that was simply what needs to be done. Arthur will not get special treatment because he is family: “I was notified indeed that there were some complaints and it reached me and I said to the police if it is that he has violated the law then you must do what needs to be done. The fact that you are the brother of the commissioner does not make you immune from liability if you break the law. I think that the police officers did detain him and he was to be charged. I have seen some of the video footage he posted on social media and I myself find them to be very offensive. So, the police just need to do what needs to be done. I can tell you that even me, sometimes he blasts me too. But that is [his nature]. He is my mother’s child. I cannot disown him. He continues to be my brother.” Their mother passed on earlier this year.

This morning the Commissioner took to social media on his personal page to reiterate that while he loves all his siblings and would “give the world for them,” that he would not stand in the way if they did wrong and earned the Police’s attention. He also noted that in response to a surge of crime in Seine Bight, he along with the village’s chairman and area representative Rodwell Ferguson have mobilized to address and suppress crime and everyone collectively must work to keep it that way.
