Its called due process. They are entitled to and out of bail. Change the law.

It is hard to know what is being discussed with only links to FB videos. I like to read such information.

Katie, I remember hearing about this case awhile back. Are they actually charged with murder? Is murder a bailable offense in Belize? It isn't in a lot of places. Some facts and clarity would help.
Greg
P.S. I am not prejudging. I have no idea what actually happened in this situation.

Even though the child died in their home and no one else was in their home they have not been charged with murder and the police allowed them to remove all their belongings from the home. Only charged with cruelty to a child

Murder is not a bailable offence, but they have not been charged with that.

And the real question that the police or anyone responsible refuses to answer is why have they not been charged?

From what I've read so far (admittedly, it's not all that much), it appears that the police don't feel they have the evidence to support a charge of murder. At least not yet. So they have been charged with a serious offense that the known facts do support, and the investigation continues. Were they required to surrender their passports as a condition of bail? I hope so. If that's the case, it sounds like pretty standard police procedure to me.

As condition of bail they had to surrender passports and report to police in Belize City every Monday. Reports are in that they did report today. Whether they did not "feel" like a charge of murder is another very doubtful when you realize the parents were allowed to live in the house for 3 days AFTER the body of this child was discovered. I wonder where any evidence got to?
