Emer­gency ‘not the an­swer’

Daily Nation (Barbados) - - World/region -

BELMOPAN – Op­po­si­tion Leader John Briceño says a state of emer­gency is not the so­lu­tion to crime in Belize City and urged the Dean Bar­row gov­ern­ment to take a com­pre­hen­sive and holis­tic ap­proach to ad­dress­ing the so­cio-eco­nomic dif­fi­cul­ties faced by south side res­i­dents.

“This is not the an­swer. The Peo­ple’s United party would not have gone down this road be­cause we would have been ad­dress­ing this is­sue way back. . . . You are reap­ing what you have sewn,” Briceño said at a news con­fer­ence.
