Belize is once more getting negative publicity about our mask policing, this time on San Pedro. On Thursday, Minister of Home Affairs Kareem Musa was called about an incident involving the brother of Joyjah Estrada, a Belizean model and social media influencer living in the U.S. She said her brother was assaulted and detained by police in the island town for not wearing a mask. In addition, during the incident, the officer allegedly pulled his service weapon and threatened the young man before taking him into custody. The incident came as surprise to Minister Musa and he did not condone the officer’s actions.
