P age 2 S TA R T el: 626 8822 & 626 3788 E m a il: s t a r n e w s p a p e r @g m a il. c om Sund a y S e p t e m be r 13 2009 L i b er t y A nd T h e P u r s u i t Of Ha pp i n e ss I t s a wonderful feelin g to be bac k after ta k in g a brea k for so me tra v els rest relaxation and spendin g quality ti m e with fa m ily and friends. A fter bein g away fro m the o f fice for a couple of wee k s and upon r e t u r n i n g w e r e a l i z e d t h a t o u r w o r k i ng a n d l i v i ng e nvi r o n m e n t c o u ld do well with so m e re m odelin g and so we too k the first wee k o f f to chan g e a few thin g s around in order to spice up the wor k in g and li v in g en v iron m ent. W e a r e now ready and reconditioned to continue ser v in g you with renewed v i g o r. W e are therefore plun g in g ri g ht into the m ix of thin g s and we start of o f f by expressin g a heartfelt than k you to all those m any pers o ns who e xpresse d g enuin e apprec i ation t o see us bac k in town. W e were so m ewhat disheartened howe v er to ha v e returned to a wa v e of accusations of brutal and other less subtle but nonetheless serious for m s of abusi v e beha v ior on the part of a few ele m ents of the local constabular y. The case that stands out a m on g others is the alle g ed beatin g of taxi dri v e r Ber n ar d Ba nn er A nd ers on, further details of which is contained elsewhere in this edition of the newspape r. On a rather personal note there was the case of a close relati ve of ours who was arrested and cha rg ed for handlin g stolen g oods despite the fact that the arrestin g o f ficer in his report pro v ided no connection to the accused and the reported stolen g oods but when the arrestin g o f ficer brou g ht this discrepancy to the attention of his i mm ediate super v iso r the alle g ed response was: Y ou go ahead and charge his r s Let him deal with that in court. A request was consequently m ade for a re v ision of the facts and w h e n t h e m a t te r w as b r ou g h t b e fo r e th e c ou r t th e p r o s ec u t i on infor m e d that there wa s no e v idence ag ainst one of t he three acc u sed a n d he r eques t ed th a t the cha rg e be w i thdra w n a g a i nst the accused but only after the accused had spent o v er 24 hours in a prison cell and was depri v ed of a full day s pa y. This was indeed a troublin g experience as it lea v es us to seriously wonder how m any innocent persons ha v e either been shipped o f f to prison or released on bail with ha v in g to ta k e ti m e out to appear in court on the m any adjourn m ent dates until the m atter reaches its natural conclusion with the case bein g e v entually struc k out for want of prosecution. This k ind of abusi v e beha v io r in our hu m ble opinion flourishes w h e n t h o s e w h o s h ou l d lega l ly p r o v i d e t h e ch e ck a n d b a l an c e a g a i n st such abuses are i g norant to the i m portant role they play within the co mm unity as o f ficers of the court. W e are specifically referrin g to those untrained Justices of the Peace who oftenti m es because of political patrona g e wa k e up one m ornin g with the J P title su f fixed to their na m es and without fully understandin g their role. W e ha v e said it before and we will say it a g ain Am on g their m any duties and functions a Justice of the Peace stands as a chec k and balance a g ains t the abuse of authority by th o se cha rg ed with enforcin g the la w. By la w before e f fectin g an arrest a police m an of whate v er ran k, m ust first swear to an infor m ation and co m plaint then obtain a warrant of arrest before proceedin g to depri v e any citizen of his constitutional ri g ht to liberty and the pursuit of happiness as is enshrined at section (e) of the prea m ble of the Constitution of the S o v erei g n Nation of Belize. What does swearin g to an infor m ation and co m plaint m ean? It m eans M r Justice of the Peace that a police m an m ust pro v ide you with the facts of the cha rg e and the basis on which they intend to depri v e any citizen of their constitutional ri g ht to freedo m. This i g norance to the law is not only confined to new Justices of the Peace but it li k ewise exists a m on g so m e senior ones I n fact w h en t hi s pr o ced u re was re c ent l y b r ought t o t he a tte n ti o n o f a senior JP his response was NO NO NO I cannot ask the police to show me any s t atement they have against anyone Those s t atemen t s are confidential police matters and if the police begin to show us these s t atemen t s the information could be leaked to the accused . What this senior J P ob v iously does not realize is that in putting forward a defense e v ery accused person m ust by la w be g i v en full disclosur e before proceedin g to trial That disc l osure M r. Justice of the Peace includes e v ery bit of docu m entary e v idence an d sta t e m e n ts t h at t h e p r osec u tion int e nds t o us e a ga inst the accuse d Howe v e r b y the ti m e t his is done the accuse d would ha v e either been re m anded to jail or would ha v e been subjected to the incon v enience of ha v in g to ta k e ti m e o f f to attend those m any adjourn m ents. M r Justice of the Peace please be infor m ed that you are under no obli g ation to si g n any arrest warrant for any police m an if you are not fully satisfied that the infor m ation and co m plaint presented to you warrants the depri v in g of that indi v idual s ri g ht to freedo m. W e will v enture to say that v er y v er y v ery few are the Justices of the Peace if any who ha v e e v er requested to re v iew the e v idence a g ainst an accused person before si g nin g a warrant of arrest In fact we would e v en v enture to say that there are so m e Justices of the Peace who irresponsibly hasten to si g n their na m es to arrest warrants without e v en as m uch as readin g the paper on which they aff i x t h e i r s i g n a t u r e T h e s a y i n g t h e r e f o r e h o l d s t r u e t h a t C o w k n ow whe weak fence deh and so these irre g ular police m en flac k to these wea k fences. There was also the case this wee k where a youth was brou g ht b e f o re t h e c o u rt on t w o c h a rg e s : ( 1) r e s is t i n g a r r e s t a n d ( 2) indecent words I n the absence of a substantial cha rg e these two m inor cha rg es should ne v er be allowed to stand independently in court T h e ob v ious quest i on should be: W h at arrest was t h e accused resistin g in the first instan c e? I n the ob v ious a b sence of a substantial cha rg e what the accused was actually resistin g was the un l awful dete n tion b y a p olice m an a n d ob vi ousl y what ev er scenario m i g ht ha v e occurred was actually insti g ated by the one atte m ptin g without ob v ious le g al cause to depri v e a citizen of his constitutional ri g ht to liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
