Regional: The wife of a British-Belizean businessman, pollster and politician – Andrew Ashcroft Jasmine Hartin, got bail on 29 June 2021 after the Central Prison authorities received confirmation of her meeting the conditions for bail.

Jasmine Hartin for murdering a top Belize cop Henry Jemmott on 28 May 2021; however, while in an interview with a news channel, Hartin stated that the incident was merely an accident when the Cop was teaching her to use a Glock firearm.

Hartin was released two weeks ago on a bail amount of 30,000 Belizean dollars, or USD 15,000, but the bail was withdrawn again. Earlier, the bail documents were rejected by the court on Friday last week.

The 32-year-old stated that she does not feel secured behind bars and could be murdered.

The lawyer of Hartin, Wendy Auxillou, who secured her release, stated that she is psychologically and emotionally abused and added that his husband is not allowing Hartin to meet her four-year-old twins.

In an interview with the local media house, Hartin cited, “Why won’t you let me see the kids, Andrew? Why won’t you let me see the children?”

Following the statement, she added, “Why do you hate me from being at my house and seeing my kids, Andrew? You do not want to be on camera? Why are you keeping my kids from me, Andrew? You lied to my whole family. Let me see my children.”

In addition, Richard Dickie Bradley will be the new representative of Hartin in the court’s legal proceedings who complained of an “ambush” plotted by the Office of Director of Public Prosecutions and Police Department.

He stated that they had acted “immorally and unethically” by objecting to bail on a minor offence and then seeking to try to revoke the original bail or, in the alternative, convincing surety to withdraw, wholly based on the new charges and without notice to himself and his client.
