Allegations are that Belisle took away a Samsung cellular phone valued at $255 from Reyes on August 5, 2016 and attacked him with a machete later that same day. The injuries to Reyes were serious and life threatening; therefore, Belisle was arrested for attempted murder.

In court on Monday, September 19, Belisle was arraigned before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser for charges of attempted murder, use of deadly means of harm, dangerous harm and robbery upon Francisco Reyes. Belisle was unrepresented when he appeared in court and pleaded not guilty to the charges. Due to the nature of the offenses, bail was denied. He was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until November 22, 2016.

Prime Minister Barrow’s niece, 31 year-old Candace Anderson, continues to recover from gunshot injuries she suffered on Thursday, September 15.

Police don’t think that she was the intended target, but due to very unlucky circumstances, she was shot by a gunman who fired into a group. According to police, the incident happened at around 1:30 p.m. on that day. She was reportedly socializing with a group of persons inside a yard on 7th Street. That’s when 2 men came along on motorcycle. One of them was armed, and he jumped off the bike, quickly entered the yard, and started firing at people who Anderson was in the company of. Nobody else was hurt, but unfortunately, she was injured in the left leg and the abdomen area. Persons present immediately rushed her to the Belize Medical Associates where the police found her.

Prime Minister Dean Barrow has since commented to the press saying that the initial surgery to treat the wounds was successful, and her health is expected to return to normal. He noted that the entire family was worried about whether or not she would pull through. Anderson is the daughter of Denise Barrow, who residents of the Queen Square Division know better as “Sister B”, since she is the Prime Minister’s political officer in that area. Anderson is also an employee of the Central Bank of Belize.
