By BBN Staff: A Belize City man facing charges for gang affiliation had his bail revoked in the Supreme Court on Tuesday after he tried to leave the country but was caught.

Thirty-four-year-old Nelson Henry, appeared before Justice Francis Cumberbatch after he absconded to Mexico en route to the United States but was detained by Mexican authorities and deported back to Belize.

Justice Cumberbatch, after considering submissions made by the prosecution to have Henry’s bail revoked, determined that Henry was in violation of two of the conditions of his bail and remanded him to the Belize Central Prison.

No date has been set for his matter, so Henry will just have to wait behind bars until his matter is called up.

Henry was fleeing a charge of gang affiliation as a part of the Belize Police Department’s crackdown on gang activity in Belize City. He was granted bail in the sum of $10,000 plus two sureties of the same back in January, with conditions that he should not leave the jurisdiction and report to the Queen Street Police station to sign in on specified days, neither of which he complied with.

On March 18, he along with brothers Tyrone and Ellis Meighan, was sent back to Belize, and the Meighan brothers were also remanded to the Belize Central Prison.
