DPP, Police say more evidence being gathered in high-profile rape case

Posted: Wednesday, January 24, 2024. 6:51 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: It has been 11 days since the allegations were reported and about 12 since they allegedly occurred, but evidence is still being gathered against a popular Belize City attorney accused of the rape of two women following a night of partying.

Director of Public Prosecutions Cheryl-Lynn Vidal made her first public comments on the case on Tuesday, indicating that the statement of the main complainant was just the beginning in terms of collecting evidence: “I think at the time what they did not say was that when those statements were sent it was made very clear that other evidence was forthcoming. We have been receiving additional evidence. Just today, I received additional evidence. So, I cannot [decide] until I have everything before me. It is not the ordinary case where it would have been possible just on the statements provided on the onset to [decide].”

Commissioner of Police Chester Williams added that the DPP had asked the investigators to do some further work: “That work is being done, and once those are completed, they will be sent back to her. And hopefully, we get a final determination from the DPP [regarding] that matter.”

Police spoke to the accused as part of their investigations.
