By Breaking Belize News Staff: Authorities continue to investigate the murder of businessman, Ricardo Borja.

Reports say that police have detained realtor, Frick De Meyere from Placencia for questioning.

De Meyere was one of the persons mentioned in an audio testimonial that went viral the day after Borja was murdered. The testimonial was reportedly recorded just 1 day before Borja was gunned down.

Borja who was known as a businessman and real estate agent had reportedly obtained 10 gun licenses.

During an interview with 7news Belize, Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams confirmed that Borja produced all requisite documents and the Compol approved the license.

“He did produce all the requisite documents and proof that he owns a business and he was generating funds and so he would fall within the category of those persons and in addition to that, there was no conviction that he had for any crime, yes there’s accusations, like there’s any accusations made against people but again, he was never taken to court on those accusations,” Williams said.

The gun licenses obtained by Borja were reportedly issued between March of 2021, and July of 2022.

Therefore, he obtained 10 gun license in a span of only 17 months.

The Commissioner of Police says that Borja produced good credentials that he was a businessman and so he issued the licenses.
