Belize Media Group understands that on Friday around 10pm, several teams compromising of members from the Belmopan Immigration and Nationality Department along with members from the Belize Major Crimes Unit simultaneously descended on popular entertainment spots around Orange Walk Town. These hot spots included Picame Bar, Paraiso, Copa Cabana and Mexicaly Bar.

Among, the women detained were 6 Guatemalan Nationals, 16 Honduran national, 1 Belizean and 3 other persons who are suspected of being involved in ownership of these establishments. Their attorney, Marcel Cordona, stated that the rights of these 26 individuals have been grossly violated under Section 5 of the Belize Constitution. Cardona says authorities are limited to a 48 hour detention period and after that time has elapsed, if there is no evidence of charge then the detainees deserve to be free.

Cardona says that he is under the belief, that all his clients are legally residing in the country.Our intent to communicate with officials from the Police Department and the Belmopan Immigration has gone unanswered.
