On Monday the Ministry of Education issued a statement on allegations of an inappropriate relationship between the Principal of the Belmopan Baptist High School, Norman Willacy and a student under his care. Today the United Women’s Group of the People’s United Party issued its release saying it is appalled by the recent reports of sexual misconduct of adult men with minors, by persons in positions of trust and authority and finds the report against Willacey very disturbing. It says, quote “at a time when our young people are faced with lack of opportunities and positive role models, those in positions of authority entrusted as the guardians of the welfare of our children and youth, must not betray this trust for their own selfish gratification” end quote. The UWG calls on the Ministry of Education, the Belize Association of High School Principals, the Baptist Association of Belize and the Belize Council of Churches to act swiftly and decisively in dealing with this matter; and to immediately implement appropriate measures to ensure that such actions does not re-occur within the school and church systems in Belize.
