Referring to Jasmine, it states: ‘Along with her husband, Andrew Ashcroft, Jasmine has played an integral role in shaping the vision for Alaia Belize from the very beginning. Her passion for Belize and her appreciation for the local nature and culture have been guiding forces as she has collaborated with the entire development team on every aspect of the experience, from the master plan and amenity curation to interiors and social programming.’

Tributes have been paid to Superintendent Jemmott, who was well known in Belize.

The Belize coast guard, which works closely with the country’s police force was amongst the first to express its sorrow.

Acting Commandant Commander Gregory Soberanis wrote to Belize’s police chief, Chester Williams: ‘His service to his Department and country will not be forgotten. Today we mourn his loss, but honour is duty to service.

‘On behalf of the Belize Coast Guard our deepest sympathies as we stand together with the Police Department in this time of bereavement.’
