Orange Walk Couple Fined for Assisting Guatemalan National’s Illegal Entry into Belize

An Orange Walk couple has been charged for allegedly assisting a Guatemalan national to enter Belize illegally. Today, 32-year-old, Adrian Munoz and 42-year-old, Reyna Conny Gonzalez Urbina appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court. They appeared before Khiana Gordon charged jointly with facilitating the commission of an offense. The couple were brought to court alongside 25-year-old Guatemalan national Yulmy Mejia, who was charged with illegal entry. They all pleaded guilty to their charges. Magistrate Gordon considered their early guilty pleas and the fact that they were all first offenders and fined them each a thousand dollars plus five dollars cost of court. The couple has until October 31 to pay their fines or they face three months in prison. Meanwhile, Mejia needs to pay her fine forthwith or she will spend six months in prison. The Magistrate also granted a removal order against her, so she will be deported back to her home country when her fine is settled. Reports are that on Tuesday, July 18, Mejia entered Belize via the banks of the Mopan River in Benque Viejo Del Carmen. Munoz and Urbina picked her up in an SUV and were driving her to Belize City when they were stopped by authorities.
