By BBN Staff: Six women employed by Eruption Bar on the Philip Goldson Highway were arraigned in Belize City Magistrate’s Court today on a number of Immigration offenses following a joint raid on the premises carried out by the Police and Immigration Departments, however, the attorney for the women alleges gross human rights violations against his clients and has threatened a suit against the state.

The women appeared in court before Magistrate Sharmaine Gillett-McKoy in Court #5. They included 2 Salvadorans, 2 Hondurans, a Nicaraguan national, and one from the Dominican Republican. They were identified Yolanda Elizabeth Polanco Munoz, 32; Mariana Rosales Boorck, 39; Lorena Edith Rios, 38; Rosmeili Iliana Mezon, 35; Rudy Estrella Santa Maria, 30; and Salma Racquel Orellana Fuenes, 29.

In court, the women were represented by attorney, David Moralez, who placed on record his concern about how the raid was conducted and possible human rights violations. The Police and Immigration departments carried out the raid on the basis of a search for guns, ammunition, and undocumented personnel. Moralez asked that none of the women be extradited before he could speak with them in-depth about the ordeal.

Bail was denied to Fuenes and Santa Maria because they could not produce any identification and there was concern they might be flight risks. Bail was granted to all the other women, however, all but one, Munoz, was able to post her bail in the sum of $2,000 and go free until their next court date. The other five women were remanded to the Belize Central Prison until February 17.
