Trial of Mexican narco-plane pilot continues, prosecution seeks another adjournment

Posted: Thursday, September 30, 2021. 4:20 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: Prosecutors in the trial of 72-year-old Mexican pilot, Miguel Mesenguer, who stands charged with flying a narco plane into Belize, asked for another adjournment when the case was called up in court this week, as one of the last two witnesses in the case was absent.

Mesenguer, who is represented by attorney Anthony Sylvestre, appeared in court on Wednesday, only for the court to grant the prosecution’s request and adjourn the cases until Tuesday, October 5.

At that time, the prosecution will call another police witness and then recall the last witness who was unable to finish his testimony due to unforeseen circumstances.

Mesenguer is one of eight men who were caught near the landing site of a narco plane on the Coastal Road back in 2019; however, the others have all been charged with immigration offenses and have since been deported from Belize.

When the case was called up earlier in September, a crucial piece of evidence, a caution statement from the defendant which was the prosecutions’ only means of linking him to the narco plane, was deemed inadmissible in court.

We’ll have more when the trial continues next week.
