By BBN Staff:Yesterday, infamous William ‘Danny’ Mason along with his 5 employees appeared in the Belmopan’s Magistrate Court to answer charges for the alleged kidnapping of a Mennonite couple that happened in 2016.
Mason and his co-accused were represented by Attorney Herbert Panton.
In court, Panton requested that the kidnapping charges be dropped for insufficient evidence; however, Prosecutor, Sergeant Bonifacio Rash submitted that the statements given by the Mennonite couple were enough to amount to a prima facie case. Panton further argued that there were conflicting statements and conflicting identifications which violated the constitutional rights of his clients.
Last year in February, Mason and his co-accused also answered to charges to the 2016 murder of Pastor Llewellyn Lucas.
Mason was arrested by police when he was driving around Belmopan City with Lucas’ head in a bucket that was inside his vehicle.
The magistrate will issue her ruling on the case on May 7, 2018.
