Two policemen assigned to police stations in the south of Belize have been placed on interdiction after they were accused of rape by a minor.
The girl reported that this week, the two policemen, whose ranks we were told are constables, were drinking and offered the 13 year-old girl, who accepted the liquor. However, when she became inebriated, the two law enforcers, who are assigned to the Independence and Bella Vista police stations, had sexual intercourse with her against her will.
The matter is now before the Professional Standards Bureau and will be before the court after the two are criminally charged with rape.
A medical exam on the girl has since determined that she has had sexual intercourse recently.
