In the past 72 hours the nation of Belize and in particular, Belize City is traumatized by daily murders and mysterious events that begs the question, WHY ?, does a nation of 350 thousand and a City with approximately 100 thousand people have a higher homicide rate than London, a city of 8.1 million.

We commend the continuous efforts of the police and those who are trying to find solutions and strategy to combat the root cause of the problem. But the last 3 days has been so outrageous that we all must ask more questions, as to why is this happening.

Today, Allyson Major died at the KHMH after being shot by an unknown police officer, while fleeing the police, but driving in the direction of the main police station.

At a press conference earlier today, Ret’d. Col. George Lovell, CEO in the Ministry of National Security, told the media this afternoon that the public can be assured that there will be a thorough investigation into the death of Allyson Major, and if indeed the allegations of him being shot without provocation by a Police Officer is true, then that officer will be dealt with.

And, in response to the death of their love-one, the family of Allyson Majors sought the legal assistance of the Law Firm of Musa and Balderamos .

Following the murder of Allyson Major as a result of a bullet fired by a Police Officer, representatives from the Ministry of National Security and the Belize Police Department met with family members of Major at the offices of Musa and Balderamos in Belize City. Attorney and friend of the deceased, Kareem Musa, spoke to the media after the meeting. (see Video below).
