Father Smalls Responds To Sexual Allegation

Father Smalls Responds To Sexual Allegation
February 18
16:30 2019 NEWSPAPER - News Staff - 

UPDATE February 19th.
The accusations made against Father Oliver Smalls are based on a list that was recently made public, and includes accusations against several dozen clergy in the State of Virginia, USA.

The Belizean public should also be made aware that there are no charges or accusations being made by anyone in Belize or by Belizean authorities.

Father Oliver Smalls Jr., has responded quickly to the sexual abuse allegation through his attorney Leeroy Banner, and the decision by Bishop Nicasio to remove him from his Ministry in Belize after allegations of sexual abuse of minors made against him.

In a letter issued this afternoon, Banner states that “our client vehemently denied, and continues to deny the allegations, and in an effort to prove his innocence took and passed a polygraph test in relation to the allegation against him.” The letter ends by expressing disappointment in the Bishop, and states that Smalls is in the process of determining legal recourse.
