Belize Police Rules

Since Arbitrary and Capricious has blown my cover I am looking around for a place to "vacation." While so doing I ran across this set of rules which judges in Belize have set out for police who wish to question witnesses, suspects, and arrestees. It's interesting in that it covers most of what is in Miranda but seeing it phrased in a different way is kinda strange.

Rule 7.1 makes me wonder about the guy who gives the "exculpatory" statement of "I didn't shhot that guy, it was my brother who did it while we were just robbing him." Do they have a felony murder rule in Belize, now that you're our criminal law expert there?
