A recent document has been circulating in Facebook purporting that Ruth Logan, one of the four delegates running for the PUP standard-bearer for the Belmopan constituency, was convicted for the offence of wounding in the year 2009. This might surely put Ruth Logan in a very delicate position considering the timing, and might surely have negative repercussions in this weekend’s PUP convention. We asked Ruth Logan if she believes that will play out to be a negative factor for her at the convention and with some reluctance, she gave her side of the story
“No it won’t be a fact that. Get the truth, Know what happened before you talk..”
Reporter: “Tell us what happened”.
Ruth Logan: “I won’t say it on the air”.
Reporter: “You must come out with the truth”.
Ruth Logan: “You can go and check the records. Okay, you want the truth? I was attacked in my home. Do you know when somebody goes in your house and attacks you? Know the information. What was I charged of? If I was being charged, why didn’t I serve prison time? Why? Did I ever serve a day in prison? No. Did I ever serve a day in prison? No. Everyone have it clear, I was attacked in my own house. What should I have done? But you know what? My life come first. I have two children and I have a gentleman I have to defend. So, I fought in my own house. That’s why the court said, we debounded us over the beans. It was at my home I was attacked and it was in San Ignacio. I live in Belize City for 13 years. I was never attacked. Everybody knows me, I am a cool person”.
