Posted: Monday, May 18, 2015. 2:38 pm CST.


Monday, May 18th, 2015. BMG: This morning residents of the Cayo District participated in an organized picket, the bond for the protest was signed by Mr. Orlando Habet and Mrs. Ursula Gurerra to have a peaceful demonstration for two hours in front of the administration building from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

On December 21st, 2011 a search was conducted at the residence of Loida and Gerald August where police found a nine millimeter pistol inside their house.

Both Loida and Gerald were arrested and charge for keeping an unlicensed firearm.  Two months ago the couple were found guilty of the charge and were sentenced to 5 years in prison, leaving behind their four children, ages 4, 7, 9 and 11 years with their grandmother Ester Quintanilla.

It is reported that Quintanilla has been having a difficult time taking over the responsibility of the four children and is appealing to authorities for assistance in freeing Loida August in order to get help with the children.

In an interview this morning with Orlando Habet he stated that “An appeal was made to the Supreme Court, it was sent to the Chief Magistrate who allowed the case to be heard in Benque Viejo three weeks ago.

The presiding Magistrate did not hear the case reason being that the documentation for the case by Magistrate Narda Morgan has not been completed.

In regards to the documenting the reason for her decision accordingly, she has to do that before the case can be opened again.”
