“What is troubling to me as the Leader of the Opposition is that there does seem to be an erosion in the relationship between the  Police and the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.  In any democratic society, that is dangerous.  There also seems to be a division between the Police Department itself with the Gang Suppression Unit and the rank and file if you like- of the Police Force; they seem to be at odds, and that is too very, very troubling, is very, very dangerous, it is a cause for concern and it is a matter that needs to be addresses immediately, so that the Belizean people are satisfied that we have a functioning, effective Belize Police Department that is working for and on behalf of the citizens of this country and that they are doing so in a united fashion”..

vlcsnap-2014-01-31-19h57m59s62PUP  leader Fonseca says the divide in the Police leadership with the GSU and relations with the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions have been exposed by this case.

His voice reiterated that it is not good for Belize to see such deep division and reiterated the PUP’s distaste for the Firearms (Amendment) Act,  calling for it to be reviewed.
