By BBN Staff: International media outlets are reporting that three Belizeans have been jailed in El Salvador.
They are Marlon Alberto Valle, Jessy Gabriel Ojeda and Deymy Vanessa Rodríguez.
Reports are that they were along with three Hondurans and a Guatemalan who were all busted with over $10,000 each at the that Monseñor Óscar Arnulfo Romero Airport.
Those monies were never declared.
And so the Attorney General’s Office in El Salvador is preparing to charge these detainees with money laundering and other financial crimes.
It is not yet known where these persons were traveling to before they were detained.
We note that this is not the first time that Belizeans have been busted with huge sums of cash in El Salvador.
Last September, Belizean National, Oscar Lesby Itza, was found with half a million US dollars in cash at this same airport.
He too was charged with money laundering.
The money was reportedly to make payments to Panamanian banks.
