Businessman Aaron Wilson’s Court Appearance Delayed; court had no documentation on him

Businessman Aaron Wilson showed up to the Belize City Magistrate’s Court today to answer a charge of boisterous behavior, but his case was never called up. Wilson, along with his attorney Richard “Dickie” Bradley, says that they waited all day, but police have not given him any indication as to whether or not the matter against him will proceed. Wilson is currently on bail and will have to follow up with police, as he says the magistrate’s court did not have any documentation for him.

Wilson was charged by officers at the Ladyville Police Station on March 9, following an encounter that made headlines for several reasons. As we previously reported, Wilson says that the officers violated his rights when the officers locked him up for 22 hours before bringing the charge against him. He contends that they deliberately made him wait and kept him at the station unduly and unlawfully. He has retained Bradley to represent him in a claim against the government and the police department in that regard. The incident also prompted a correspondence between Crown Counsel Riis Cattouse and Commissioner of Police Chester Williams, where Cattouse called out police for unlawful detentions. Director of Public Prosecutions Cheryl Lynn Vidal has since weighed in on the matter saying that it is not standard practice for crown counsels to engage the commissioner directly and that she did not sanction Cattouse’s letter.
