By BBN Staff: Eight law men accused of murder, walked free today in the Orange Walk Magistrate Court.
According to reports, the prosecution could not locate the case file and so the case was struck out by the Magistrate.
Last February, the law men were accused of beating unarmed civilian, Ariel Salazar to death in his home in Orange Walk town.
The accused were 21 year-old Bladimir Escaraga, a resident of San Jose Village; 23 year-old Francis Sho, a resident of Belmopan; 31 year-old Patrick Villagran Sr., a resident of Ladyville; 26 year-old Edmar Petillo, a resident of Carmelita Village; 26 year-old Patrick Diego; a
resident of Pomona Village; 28 year-old Mateo Bolon, a resident of Jalacte, Toledo; 33 year-old Elvis Cobb, a resident of San Victor
Village, and 29 year-old Lennart Cajun.
All seven soldiers and one police officer attached to the Belize Special Assignment Group (BSAG) were able to return home as per normal.
It is uncertain if the men will be returned to their duties or if they will be recharged.
