Ministry of Human Development, Families and Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs issues remarks on rape allegations

Posted: Friday, January 19, 2024. 4:05 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: The Ministry of Human Development, Families and Indigenous Peoples Affairs says it is taking an interest in the recent allegations of rape made against a prominent attorney of Belize City.

In a statement, the Ministry registers its “great concern” and adds, “We are disheartened by these serious allegations, and we call on all relevant authorities to spare no effort in investigating thoroughly and seeking that justice be done.”

The Ministry also denounces a reported news article on a social media outlet which it says seeks to discredit the complainants and to cast doubt in this case. “This matter must NOT be tried in the court of public opinion, and we discourage in the strongest terms any victim blaming or speculation,” it states.

On the matter of alcohol consumption and recreation, the Ministry urges caution and awareness that persons will use drugs and alcohol to incapacitate others for nefarious purposes. “Let us take all steps necessary to protect all persons and, especially minors, from such criminal behavior. Our ministry has reached out and will be providing the necessary support and counseling to the victims. Once again, we trust that all efforts will be taken to render fairness and justice in this matter,” it concludes.

So far no charges have been laid in the matter.
