Friday, June 6, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: Zhaohang Huang, a 50 year old naturalized Belizean-Chinese businessman, pleaded guilty today to five counts of employing persons not in possession of a valid temporary workers’ permit.
He was charged in the same raid that netted two other bar owners on Wednesday night, June 4.
In his case, officers showed up asking for identification for five Honduran nationals found working at the Fusion Bar on Coney Drive, particularly work permits.
None were able to present any and they were rounded up and taken to the Immigration Department office in Belize City, where after interviews Huang was laid charges.
He was fined $1,000 on each count by Magistrate Hettie Mae Stuart to be paid by September 30, in default six months imprisonment concurrently.
