On hand for the official swearing-in was Priscilla Banner of the Attorney General’s office who spoke about the legislation and gave a run down of the duties and obligations the Justices of the Peace should uphold. Banner emphasized that the system of Justices of the Peace was the foundation of the Belizean legal system, and urged the new office holders to exercise the functions of their office without fear or favor, affection or ill-will. All eight individuals did this on oath over the sacred Holy Bible.
Banner also encouraged the new Justices of the Peace (JP) to familiarize themselves with their roles as set out in the Justices of the Peace Manual, and pointed out that the new JP’s should seek to cement bonds of fellowship by seeking guidance from fellow Justices of the Peace through the Association of Justices of the Peace. Banner further stated that in the Legislature under the Justice of the Peace Act, the officers have an obligation to the Code of Ethics and should uphold and follow them diligently. Failure to comply would be a breach of the Code of Ethics and would entail legal action. As per the Senior Justices of the Peace, they have in their power to conduct legal marriages which is stated in the Marriage Act of Belize.
These twelve individuals were chosen based on their civic duty and commitment to their communities. Individuals sworn in were: (Senior JP’s) Ruben Gonzalez, Fidel Ancona, Wilfredo Alamilla Jr., Anne Elizabeth Longsworth, Yolanda Parham, and Daniel Guerrero. Whilst Justices of the Peace were: Abelina Heredia, Herman Acosta, Adaleida Gonzalez, Gonzalo Muñoz, Severo Guerrero Jr., and Melita Guerrero.
After the official formalities, Minister Heredia thanked the new Justices of the Peace for accepting their new office of serving the community of San Pedro Town in a voluntary capacity.

Press Release – SPAC/WIN-Belize – October 27th, 2008 – In order to bring even more attention and drive to the annual World AIDS Day Solidarity walk, the San Pedro AIDS Commission accepted to merge with the Women’s Issues Network – Belize. Both non-profit organizations will unite on November 30th in commemoration of World AIDS Day. The San Pedro AIDS Commission has for the past eight years been working diligently in San Pedro to bring HIV/AIDS awareness and education to this community. WIN Belize who is also a non-profit organization has been working with issues affecting women in this country including HIV/AIDS. Representatives from both groups agreed to merge with one common cause – bring awareness!
This year, the annual Torch Run that is spearheaded by WIN Belize countrywide will form part of the Solidarity Walk that is also a yearly event in San Pedro. World AIDS Day is being observed under the theme: “Youth Take the Lead” while the Torch Run has as its theme, “Silence has a price.” The Solidarity Walk and Torch Run will culminate with a grand fair held at Central Park. Although in the planning stages, the fair will have various booths, including one which will be carrying out rapid AIDS testing. Tentatively, a Rock Concert is also in the process of being finalized.
Through this medium, both groups are encouraging all schools, businesses and individuals to participate in this endeavor as we march for one common good; to reduce the stigma and discrimination of HIV/AIDS and Gender Based Violence. Join us! Support Us! Make a difference!
