American National claims Belizean Police tortured him

An American National and business owner of a Pizza Place in Caye Caulker has filed a complaint to both the Caye Caulker and San Pedro Police Stations regarding alleged police brutality by certain police officers from the Caye Caulker Police formation.

The unnamed businessman claims that a personal gripe that a police officer on the island has with him has escalated to the point where over the past four months he has been targeted and most recently he has been severely tortured.

In an Interview with CTV3, the Caye Caulker Businessman stated  “… they poured acid on me and I can’t take it off my body and it is now eating my flesh and with a lot of pain, but I am trying to get to the bottom of this and I was abused in the most terrific way you can imagine.”

Besides being pepper sprayed, the complainant claims multiple bruises and abrasions to his head, face and body, and released the pictures shown to illustrate the extent of injuries he received at the hands of his police abusers.
