Turning to other news: Police officer Reginald Diego appeared in court after he was charged with extortion in August 2020. A US national is accusing Diego of extorting him of five hundred dollars while Diego was on duty at the police checkpoint near Tower Hill in Orange Walk. His case was called up today in the Orange Walk Magistrate’s Court but the American was unable to attend and as such, it was adjourned to a later date. Diego is being represented by Attorney Norman Rodriguez, who spoke to Love News.
Rodriguez is co-counsel with Senior Counsel Hubert Elrington.
