San Pedro is the tourist capital of Belize. It also provides large portions of jobs and of course it attracts the largest number of visitors to our shores. San Pedro is officially a town and it is a busy and bustling one.

San Pedro has no Magistrate. For more than a decade the town has had its own full time Magistrate and is responsible for all police and civil cases for itself and the island of Caye Caulker. By having its own Magistrate, San Pedro Court took the strain off Belize City as well as it took a financial strain from off its residents as they need not pay for passage to and from Belize City to attend court.

The UDP government which is known for its high level of incompetent and for its disrespectful treatment of Belizeans has succeeded in depriving San Pedro of a Magistrate. Since the arrival of a foreign Chief Magistrate, San Pedro has become one of the victims of the UDPís backward mentality.

The idiocy of the situation has been highlighted now that the BELIZE TIMES received information that there are three Magistrates in Cayo. There is a full time Magistrate in Belmopan. There is a full time Magistrate for Benque Viejo Del Carmen and there is a full time Magistrate for San Ignacio.

We call on the Chief Justice to give the issue some attention and to give residents of San Pedro the best chance for justice.
