Friday, March 13, 2015. AARON HUMES Reporting: Chief Magistrate Ann-Marie Smith has ordered the case of destruction of the Noh Mul Mayan monument in Orange Walk Town to go back to the Corozal Town Magistrate’s Court, overruling colleague Hurl Hamilton’s decision to send it down to Belize City this week.
Both sides are looking forward to presenting their case, including new video of the destruction created by media houses.
Denny Grijalva, owner and executive of Demar’s Stone Company, and several accomplices are accused of wantonly laying waste to the monument in 2013 to obtain filler for road building in northern Orange Walk, a charge he denies.
Grijalva is being represented by attorney Bryan Neal and Crown Counsel Leroy Banner is prosecuting.
