I"The Newspaper That Cares And Dares To Bring Out The Truth"



BELIZE CITY, Thursday, June 24, 2010:
San Ignacio's most recent accused
murderer was this Thursday evening
captured in Belize City.
The manhunt for accused murderer,
Dionicio "Life" Salazar, 25, ended at
around 3:00 pm today in Belize City when
city police stormed a house located a #68
McKenzie Lane off Central American
Boulevard in the Port Loyola Area where
Salazar was captured and taken into custody.
While Salazar was found alone inside the
house, the investigation continues with a
view for the possible laying of criminal
charges against the legal occupier of the
premises who is said to be a woman
working at the Ready Call Center in
Immediately upon receipt of the confirmed
capture of the accused, a team of policemen
from San Ignacio were dispatched to Belize

SANTA ELENA TOWN, Cayo District,
Monday, June 21, 2010:
Four Santa Elena boys were today
arrested and charged in connection with the
reported burglary of the business place of a
hardworking Santa Elena woman.
The sun was just emerging in the eastern
skies when shortly after five o'clock on the
morning of Thursday, June 17, a team of

City with instructions to transport the
fugitive to San Ignacio where he will be
formally arrested and primarily charged for
the June 13, 2010 murder of Marion Alfredo
Rivera Archilla, 26 and the attempt murder
of Dean Daniel Dougall, 41.
Although there were widespread rumors
that Salazar had jumped the western border
into Guatemala or the northern border into
Mexico, police held steadfast to a constant
inflow of information that he was hiding out
someplace on the southside of Belize City.
The successful apprehension of this
accused murderer is credited to information
received by way of the police TIPS hotline.
The information was relayed to Police
Special Branch in Belize City where it was
processed with the intelligence based
operation executed by elements of Belize
City's Anti-Crime Unit of the Belize Police

The Challenges Of Producing Competent And Qualified

Commissioners Of Police In Belize And Other Former

British Colonies In The Caribbean Region

By: Wellington C. Ramos

Belize like many other former
colonies of Great Britain in the
Caribbean region, is challenged
in the search for senior ranking
police officers to take on the task
as Commissioners of Police.
In Belize, this is due to a
lack of training, favoritism, a
difficient promotional system
and politics.
This could also be the case in
other Caribbean countries
because in the news many of
them are seeking to import
Commissioners of Police from
In the history of the Belize
Police Force most of the
officers who were promoted to
the rank of Commissioner of
Police came from the Special
Branch Unit due to their
familiarity with each other and
the relationship they developed
among themselves over the
years while providing political
intelligence, undermining fellow
police officers and providing
personal protection for politi-
In my time, one of the
functions of the Police Special
Branch was the gathering of
political information and
processing it into intelligence.
The Police Special Branch was
hardly ever engaged in routine
day to day police duties.
Many of these Special Branch
Officers, who subsequently
became Commissioners of
Police, lacked experience in
criminal investigation, traffic
duties, prison duties, immigra-
tion, prosecution, administra-
tion, weapons training and other
integral areas of policing. This
reality created a strained
relationship that exists between
Special Branch Officer and
Officers from the other branches.
In fact, many police officers,

even in these current times,
display a high degree of
resentment towards members of
the Special Branch and avoid
socializing with them.
The Belize Police Department
comprises several branches such
as; Criminal Investigation
Branch (C.I.B.), Criminal
Records Office, Operations,
Special Branch, Maintenance,
Prosecution, Staff and Services,
Patrol Branch, Anti-Drug
Unit,K-9 Unit, Domestic Vio-
lence Unit, Special Patrol Unit
and Community Policing Unit
among several others.
In years gone by, the police
were also responsible for traffic
and immigration matters until
these functions were placed
under civilian control. All these
branches play a vital role in
helping the department to meet
their goals and objectives.
Police Officers groomed for
the top seat should be given the
opportunity to work in most
of the other branches of the
departments so that they can
gain experience to guide the
department forward.
In most cases police officers
are transferred when they do
something wrong or if they
aggressively request a transfer.
To have a police officer in one
department for a prolonged
period of time is not in the best
interest of the department. A
good police officer is one who
has an overall working knowl-
edge of all branches within the
Department. I am a strong
believer, from my own experi-
ences, that a police officer in
Belize cannot become knowl-
edgeable in police duties unless
that individual is given the
opportunity to work outside of
Belize City.
Currently, the Belize Police
Department does not have a
structured promotional system.
I do not aware of the adminis-
tration of any formal examina-
tion for promotional purposes.
Most police officers are
promoted on the basis of
favoritism which is not
conducive to building moral
within the department.
When I was a police officer
back in the 1970's, every police
constable was eligible to take the
examination for promotion to

corporal after three years of
service. Once they passed the
examination and the finances
were available they were recom-
mended for promotion. Addi-
tionally, every new corporal was
required to attend a Non-Com-
missioned Officers' Course
where they are instructed in
areas like methods, skills and
strategies in policing.
Belize should devise a
uniformed system to promote
members of the Department
from the rank of corporal all
the way up to the Commissioner
of Police. This should include;
specialist training courses,
education, commendations, ex-
aminations and other accom-
Promotions of Non-Commis-
sioned Officers (NCO) is done
at the discretion of the
Commissioner of Police who
makes recommendations to the
Security Services Commission
for the promotion of Commis-
sioned Officers.
Members of the Security
Services Commission are in
most instances political appoint-
ees who hardly know anything
about police work and as such
they merely serve as rubber
stamp for promotional recom-
mendations forwarded to them
by the Commissioner of Police.
An experienced and qualified
police officer who is disliked or
seen as a threat to unqualified
officers of senior rank have very
slim chances for upward mobil-
ity. Many able and capable
officers of the Belize Police
Department have resigned in
anger and frustration due to this
sad reality.
In the last government, many
officers who were loyal to that
administration were rewarded
with accelerated promotions by
the police minister of that era.
In the weeks and months prior
to the last general elections
the promotional system was
shamefully abused. Many
Belizeans questioned the timing
and the criteria that was used in
those promotions.
There was a change of
government in February 2008
and therefore it might be
difficult for those rapidly
promoted senior officers to get
another promotion during the

life of the current administration
as some of them allowed
themselves to be openly used
against members of the current
administration when they were
in opposition.
I am not one who supports
political interference in the
career advancement of police
officers, military personnel or
members of the public service.
This will set a bad precedent in
our country that will bring about
severe consequences in the near
future. Police officers and
military personnel are trained to
bear arms and when they
become disgruntled they could
pose serious security risks to
their comrades and to the
Belize and other former
British colonies attained politi-
cal independence from Britain
many years ago. Yet, we have
failed in improving the
efficiency and effectiveness of
our internal governanance to
provide relevant training for
professionals within the ranks
to manage the Police Force and
other departments.
The more we continue to
engage in promoting unqualified
individuals based on their
political persuasion, favoritism,
family relationships and other
non-professional criterias, the
task to find qualified profession-
als for the post of Commission-
ers of Police in Belize and the
other former British colonies
will become increasingly diffi-
Let us therefore wait and
see when Belize will start to
implement a fair promotional
system for members of the
Belize Police Department,
Defense Force and the Public
Service which is long overdue.
In most instances a job
description is posted and the
qualifications for those positions
are clearly outlined. If an
individual does not meet these
requirement, that individual
should not even be granted
consideration much less an
For its part, the Police Union
has an obligation to its
membership and, based on
conversations I have had with
current and former members of
the Police Department, the
matter of legally structured
guidelines for promotion within
the ranks of the Department is
of major importance and should
therefore be afforded top priority.

Telemedia Re-Opening In Benque

BEY Nicholas Ruiz,
Benque Viejo Town
Cayo District

WEDNESDAY, June 23,2010:
Thank you for affording me the
opportunity to outline an issue
that is very important to the
Benque Viejo Del Carmen
community. It regards the lack
of branch offices for the three
major utility companies, i.e.
until recently since Telemedia
will be reopening its branch
office on July 1, 2010.
This concern should be
viewed in the following context:

Of all the 9 municipalities
in Belize, Benque Viejo Del
Carmen is the ONLY one that
does not have a branch office
for any of the major utility
companies. This situation will
change however on Thursday,
July 1, when Belize Telemedia
Limited returns to Benque Viejo
with the inauguration of
their new branch office at #1
Church Street in the heart of our
We lost ALL three branch
offices (BTL, BEL, and BWSL)
from the period of 2001 2003,
under the previous government
Benque Viejo Del Carmen
has a population of 8,700
residents as documented by a
recent study by Dr. Carla
Barnett which also shows that
it has grown to the third fastest
since 2000, only behind the City
of Belmopan and San Pedro. In
fact, it showed 70% population
Benque Viejo Del Carmen,
a TOWN with a centenarian

history, does not have BEL
(electricity) nor BWSL (water)
offices, while villages like
Caye Caulker, Independence,
Ladyville all boast branch
offices for these utility
companies. This is not to mean
that Benquenos look at the
aforementioned villages with
jealousy or animosity; on the
contrary, we recognize that this
is our struggle as a town, and
that the fact that these villages
have their own branch offices
bolsters our claim to rightly have
our own branch offices.
Nonetheless, I recognize that
the core issue at heart is
profitability, on the side of the
utility companies, and customer
service, on the side of the
I genuinely believe that the
former should not eschew the
other, which I think is what has
happened in Benque Viejo.
I have sat down with ALL
the utility companies as well as
with the previous and present

Accused Murderer Escapes While

Being Transported From Prison

Wednesday, June 23, 2010:
He has been implicated in no
less than three murders in the
Cayo District and today San
Ignacio Police reports the
escape of murder suspect Efrain
Santiago, 24.
Reports reaching us indicate
that a San Ignacio police mobile
was on a primary assignment to
Belize City to pick up supplies
and as an offshoot of that
assignment, the mobile made a
detour at the Hattieville Prison
to pick up a prisoner who has
been implicated in at least three
In the first case, it was over five
years ago, during the early
hours one Saturday morning, on
February 12, 2005, when
Belmopan police were called out

Efrain Santiago, 24,
Still At Large
to a crime scene in one of
the satellite communities in
Belmopan where they came
upon the brutally machete
slaughtered body of David
The motive for Aguilar's
murder was suspected to be

robbery and the two prime
suspects were said to be his
friends as earlier that day they
were seen by several witnesses
drinking with the deceased at a
bar in the community.
The investigation revealed that
while they were drinking,
Aguilar flashed what appeared to
be a small gun. After several
hours of drinking Aguilar
reportedly announced that he
was heading home. It is alleged
that the two suspects, later
identified as Efrain Santiago,
19 years of age at the time, and
Noe Alberto Cruz, 21 at the
time, followed him with the
intention to rob him of the gun.
It turned out however that after
the fatal attack the robbers
realized that Aguilar did not
have a gun. Notwithstanding

however, they proceeded to rob
him of his wrist watch and gold
chain. The badly injured Aguilar
was rushed to the Belmopan
hospital where he passed away
three days later on Tuesday,
February 15, 2005.
Three days after Aguilar's
death, on Friday, February 18,
Efrain Santiago and Noe Alberto
Cruz were formally arrested,
charged and presented in
Belmopan's magistrate court
where a joint murder charge was
read to them.
We were unable to ascertain
how Santiago got off this
murder charge. Bottom line is
that he was out of jail when his
name resurfaced, 30 months
later, in connection with
the Tuesday, August 21, 2007
brutal stabbing murder of
Vilma Copo, 23, at the time.
The victim was reportedly
inside her house, in the San
Martin community on the
outskirts of Belmopan City, with
her 3 year old son and 2 year old
daughter as her husband, Ivan
Copo, was out of the country
working in Missouri, USA.
Sometime during that Tuesday
night a male person arrived in a
vehicle and knocked on her door.
She reportedly opened the door,
which was confirmed by the lack
of visible forced entry. Upon
entering the house, the intruder
immediately proceeded to attack
Copo. The post mortem
examination conducted three
days later on August 24, 2007
revealed that Vilma Copo died
as a result of 29 stab wounds and
a slit throat.
The heart wrenching aspect of
this brutal murder was that it was
committed in the presence of her
two young children and that they
remained inside the house
with their dead mother for the
remainder of the night right
through until about 4:30 the
following evening when the
tragic discovery was made.
Again, our research could not
determine if Santiago was ever
arrested and charged in this case.

constant however, this man's
name resurfaced in a third
murder investigation, this time
in the western most municipal-

Accused Murderer Escapes While

Being Transported From Prison

out to the scene of a murder on a
feeder road about a quarter of a
mile off George Price Boulevard
in Benque Viejo Town, where they
encountered the lifeless body of Felix
Enrique Martinez lying face down
on the side of the road with what
appeared to be a single gunshot
wound to the left side of the face.
Santiago remained at large for
over 11 months until Friday,
January 21, 2010 when he was
apprehended by Belmopan
police whilst socializing at a
friend's house in his home
community of San Martin on the
outskirts of Belmopan. He was
reportedly found in possession
of a large butcher knife.
The suspect was immediately
transported to the San Ignacio
police station where, on
Wednesday, January 27, 2010,
he was arrested and formally
charged for the December 8,
2008 murder of Felix Enrique
Martinez. He was remanded to
the central prison in Hattieville.
He was brought back to court

on Thursday, April 22, 2010
and was further remanded until
this Thursday, June 24. 2010. It
was whilst being transported
from the prison to attend court
that he allegedly escaped at
around 3:00 pm on Wednesday,
June 23, 2010.
Reports reaching us indicate
that the accused murderer was
the sole passenger inside the
back of the police mobile on its
way to San Ignacio Town.
Somewhere along the way
to San Ignacio, the accused
somehow managed to remove
the handcuffs he was wearing
and as the police vehicle slowed
down upon approaching the
speed bump located in the center
of Unitedville Village, he
jumped out of the back of
the vehicle and ran off. The
policeman driver reportedly
stopped the vehicle, jumped out
and began chasing after the
escapee. Whilst running behind
the fleeing prisoner, the police-
man tripped, fell to the ground
and emerged with a sprained

ankle. Up to press time this
Thursday night, Santiago
remains at large.
The somewhat lackluster
manner in which a prisoner of
Santiago's classification was
being transported to court is
somewhat intriguing especially
when compared for example
with the manner in which Garry
Seawell is now frequently
transported to court in San
Ignacio. While Seawell is facing
extradition proceedings on
charges of allegedly importing
drugs into the United States of
America and possession of arms
and ammunition, he is not
known to be accused of
murdering anyone, let alone

three brutal murders as is the
case with Efrain Santiago. An
entire police paramilitary
operation is mounted every time
Garry Seawell is brought to
court in San Ignacio. His hands
and feet are shacked with heavy
chains as heavily armed
policemen stand guard around
the police station and courtroom
from the time he arrives right up
until he leaves town. While we
are by no means suggesting a
relaxation of security measures
afforded Seawell, we would
hope that at the very least more
stringent security measures are
taken when handing prisoners
accused of committing capital

This was Elizabeth's first time

They all sit down and begin

Elizabeth is beginning to feel
a little discomfort, thanks to her
nervousness and the nice beans

The gas pains are almost
making her eyes water. Left with
no other choice, she decides to
relieve herself a bit and lets out
a dainty little fart. It wasn't loud,
but everyone at the table heard
it. Before she even had a
chance to be embarrassed, her
boyfriend's father looked over at
the dog that was taking a nap at

Elizabeth's feet, and said in a
rather stem voice, "Lassie!"
Elizabeth thought, "this is
great!" and a big smile came
across her face.
A couple minutes later, she was
beginning to feel the pain again.
This time, she didn't even
hesitate. She lets out a much
louder and longer fart.
The father again looked at the
dog and yelled, "dammit

A few minutes later she had to
let out another one. This time she
didn't even think about it. She
lets it out and it sounds like the
whistle of a train. Again, the
father looked at the dog but this
time with disgust and yelled,
"dammit Lassie, wake up and
get away from her before she
sh**s on you!"

Suspected Burglars Captured

In Advance of Burglary Report

19 and Lionel Peters, 22, all
Belizean laborers residing in Santa
Elena Town.
Although neither arms, ammunition
nor drugs was found inside the
house, police came upon a sizable
quantity of new clothing, colognes,
fashion jewelry and three bottles of
soft drinks under a bed occupied by
Peters. When questioned about the
origin of the found items, all three
persons denied ownership leading
police to suspect that something
was not quite right.
All three boys were detained and
transported, along with the suspi-
cious merchandise, to the San
Ignacio police station where they
were held pending investigation.
At about 7:45 that same Thursday
morning, Adriana Smith, 34,
Belizean businesswoman of a
Hillview Area address in Santa
Elena visited the police station
where she reported that her small
business place, Fashions and
Illusions, located at the corner of
Carillo Puerto Avenue and Carmen
Street in Santa Elena Town, was
burglarized. Smith reported that the
missing items included clothing,
fashion jewelry, a portable DVD
player, Victoria Secret products and
colognes all for an estimated value
of almost seven thousand dollars.

She was subsequently shown the
recovered items which she imme-
diately identified as being some to
the items stolen from her place of
business. Based on the value of the
itemized list of stolen goods pre-
sented by Smith, this first batch of
recovered items was estimated at
one thousand two hundred dollars.
As the case began to unfold, one
of the accused told investigators
that the items were found inside an
abandoned house on Salazar Street
and that a fourth person, identified
as Dalton Sabala, 18, was in
possession of additional items.
Police rushed to the Carillo Puerto
Avenue address of Dalton Sabala
where they found a white Pro Club
shirt similar to the ones found
earlier at Espat's residence. Sabala
was instantly detained and
transported to the police station.
As the investigation continued to
unfold, one of the accused led
investigators to the abandoned
house on Salazar Street where,
hidden in the ceiling, police found
a green plastic bag containing
cosmetics, perfumes and clothing.
The second set of found property
was brought to the police station
where they were positively identi-
fied by the owner and valued at
almost two thousand nine hundred
dollars thus placing the total value

Ian Villagram, 19
of the recovered items at four
thousand one hundred dollars
being almost three thousand dollars
short of the total seven thousand
dollars estimated value of the
missing merchandise.
The investigation led to the arrest
and formal charging of Shejeen
Espat, Ian Villagram and Lionel
Peters for the crime of burglary

Dalton Sabala, 18
while Dalton Sabala was charged
for handling stolen goods.
All four accused appeared before
Magistrate Anna Rachel Montejo,
on Monday, June 21, where they
pleaded not guilty as charged. They
were each offered bail in the sum
of five thousand dollars and ordered
to return to court on Friday, July
30, 2010.
