By Breaking Belize News Staff: The Crown is seeking to have the bail of 33-year-old Chinese national Zhi Jun Huang revoked after police found him with crystal methamphetamine (crystal-meth) while he was out on bail following a drug charge.
The office of the Director of Public Prosecutions took 25 days to submit an application to the Supreme Court, to have Huang’s bail revoked on two grounds: 1 that he had failed to meet the requirement to sign it at a designated police station three times a week, and 2. that he had been arrested and charged for an offense while out on bail.
Huang’s attorney, Richard “Dickie” Bradley, submitted that his client was only signing in on Fridays because he was only told to do so by his interpreter. With respect to the other violation, Bradley submitted that sending Huang to jail would cause hardships for his family as he is the sole breadwinner of his family and has a young child that speaks no English.
While situations like Huang’s have primarily ended in bail being revoked, Justice Susan Lamb ordered that a percentage of his cash bail of $15,000 be forfeited in the sum of $5,000 forthwith.
Huang’s next court date for his most recent drug case is November 29, 2022.
Huang, his wife, and five others who work at his shop were charged with drug-related offenses on July 21. He was granted bail in the sum of $10,000 for that incident. On October 21, Huang was found to have 6.4 grams of crystal meth in his possession when he visited the Queen Street Police Station. He was charged with drug trafficking and somehow managed to secure bail in the sum of $5,000 while out on the bail granted for the previous offense.
