Luis Marroquin and Colombian freed but immediately detained by Immigration officials

As we was reported on Wednesday, Peruvian, National  24-year-old Luis Miguel Marroquin was freed this morning, well, at least all charges for an alleged ATM scam were withdrawn against him when he appeared before Senior Magistrate Tricia Pitts Anderson. In fact, he and 36-year-old Edgar Jhovany Vargas Vaca, a Colombian who was in prison on the same charge was also freed. The directives came from the Director of Public Prosecution. But their freedom was short lived. Moments after being set free, the duo was pulled back in custody by the Immigration Department. At midday today, Marroquin and Vaca were taken into custody at the Queen Street Police Station where the Belize Immigration Department took over. Meanwhile, the third South American man, 35-year-old Chilean, Juan Alfonso Espinosa SaaVerdra remains at the Belize Central Prison on remand.  The DPP says there is sufficient evidence against SaaVerdra to proceed to trial. His next court date is set for May in Dangriga.
