Taipei, Belize sign accord to fight human trafficking

TAIPEI--Taiwan signed an agreement Friday with its Central American ally Belize on cross-border cooperation to combat human trafficking.

The agreement is the ninth of its kind that Taiwan has inked with a foreign country, the others being Mongolia, Honduras, Indonesia, Vietnam, Paraguay, the Gambia, the United States and the Solomon Islands, according to the Ministry of the Interior.

The latest pact was signed in Taipei by Interior Minister Chen Wei-zen and Belizean Minister of Immigration Godwin Hulse on behalf of their respective governments.

Chen noted that Taiwan has been listed as a Tier 1 country in the U.S. Trafficking in Persons Report for five years in a row due to its good performance in the prevention and control of human trafficking.

Belize?....a country with rampant crime that is supported by drug and terrorist money:
:Crime has been on the rise in Belize for the past several years. Belize remains a high-crime country due largely to the extremely high murder rate per capita. Belize is officially the sixth most dangerous country in the world with an average of just over 39 homicides per 100,000 residents. Belize has the second highest murder rate in the Caribbean, the third in Central America, and the fifth in the Americas. Belize set new national records for murders in 2009 and 2010. Gang violence, still largely confined to Belize City, is a significant contributor to the high murder rate. There were 125 murders recorded for 2011, four less than 2010, likely due to the gang truce in Belize City that began in September 2011. However, even though the number of murders dipped, ending a three-year trend of new records for murders, the murder rate actually increased slightly, due to a slight decrease in the population"
