By BBN Staff: When Ernesto Antonio Menjivar, charged with attempted murder and use of deadly means of harm, went to court this week, he was hoping to receive bail, but the court told him that he has to wait a month.
Menjivar was remanded to prison on June 7, for stabbing 20-year-old Guatemalan national Gerson Saol Almendares and was informed that he must remain on remand for a period of 90 days before his bail could be considered.
In court, Menjivar spoke of the possibility that the victim would not want to pursue any further action against him, so Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford advised that the victim would need to make a formal report to police which will then be forwarded to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
On June 4, Menjivar and Almendares met in Belize City and had an altercation. Almendarez had approached Menjivar menacingly and he responded by pulling out a knife and stabbing him.
Menjivar is scheduled to return to court on September 7.
