AARON HUMES Reporting: Jesus Contreras, 51, a nationalized Belizean originally from Honduras, was fined $4,000 by Magistrate Dale Cayetano after he pleaded guilty to four counts of employing a person not in possession of an employment permit.
Contreras was ordered to pay immediately, in default a year in prison.
Prior to sentencing, Contreras told the magistrate that he was asked by a pastor to build a church in the Fabers’ Road area and asked the quartet to assist him.
He claimed he was making no profit from the building. Immigration officers charged Contreras after visiting the construction site and finding the 4, all of Honduras.
The Magistrate said that if he continues to build the church he must do it the right way.
