Baby Nina Placed in Foster Home…Mother Allowed Visitation

At news time tonight, we can confirm that arrangements are in play to deliver two year old Nina Charlotte Barrera-Perez into the care of foster parents in Orange Walk. It’s been one week since the child was removed from the custody of her mother, Analiz Gutierrez by the Human Services Department, acting on a request from the Guatemalan central authority. The claim is that Gutierrez and the child’s father, a Guatemalan were before a court in that country to determine custody when she improperly removed her daughter from the country. We are told that at this point a Belizean Court will only act to determine if indeed the child was removed improperly from that jurisdiction, but any custody battle will play out in Guatemala. Still, the Human Services Department has agreed to place Nina in a home suggested by her mother. Pending a finding by the Court, Analiz Gutierrez will be allowed visitation, but will not be able to remove the child from the home.

    If the baby was born a Belizean, Guatemala has no rights to the placement of this child. Why does Belize have to jump when Guatemala tell them to.
