Man found not guilty for manslaughter due to inadmissible confession in court

A man’s confession of causing the death of a Bangladesh national was found to be inadmissible in court, making him a free man. Juan Choc was found not guilty for manslaughter after Justice Nigel Pilgrim ruled that the Crown’s only evidence was a caution statement which was deemed unfit to enter as evidence in the trial. The inadmissibility was based on the fact that Choc was not given food for ten to twelve hours before giving the confession. Choc, a resident of Punta Gorda, had confessed to strangling Salam but still managed to be freed with a not guilty verdict. Back in 2017, Bangladeshi businessman, Abdush Salam, was found dead in his home on Orange Street in Belize City. According to reports, Salam – who has no family in Belize – left his store at the Novelo’s Bus Terminal sometime around one in the afternoon, he went home to eat lunch; that was the last time he was seen alive. About 6 hours later, one of his roommates found him lying on his bed, face down and nude with his hands tied behind his back
