Belize promises tougher legislation to fight crime

Prime Minister Dean Barrow has recently announced that his administration will introduce tougher legislation aimed to deal with crime at next Friday’s sitting of Parliament.

This announcement came after a grenade was thrown at a group of people in the old capital of St Martin on May 4. Luckily, it did not explode.

Police were continuing their search for suspects and Barrow told reporters that he was thankful that the devise, which landed in front of a group of women and children, did not explode.

Barrow said that the government is committed to provide to the GSU (Gang Suppression Unit) everything it needs to protect the public from criminals.
