Yuanran Zheng Makes Tracks Out of Belize after Expulsion Order

Yuanran Zheng

Chinese Yuanran Zheng was today confirmed to have left the country after being served with an official Order to Leave by the Immigration Department on Friday. He first arrived in Belize on Sunday, November fifth, in possession of a Belize nationality certificate. On Monday the sixth, he showed up at the Belmopan office of Social Security Board seeking a Social Security card. Employees there questioned the authenticity of his certificate and called in their colleagues from immigration who confirmed that it was not genuine. Zheng and his translator, Taiwanese-Belizean Zheng Hui Lin of Camalote village, were jointly charged and pleaded guilty to uttering upon a forged document. Yuanran Zheng was separately charged with Social Security offences and initially pleaded not guilty before changing his plea to guilty and accepting another fine.  Minister of State for Immigration Beverly Williams today told News Five that he is now being monitored should he try to re-enter.

“He was given an order to leave but he left voluntarily. That is the process in Immigration – you have a violation, you would then have to be given an order to leave and he was given such an order.”

“Is there any way that this person can be monitored so that if he tries to come back to Belize that would count against him, or is he permanently banned? What’s the situation?”

“Of course, if he tries to re-enter Belize, we have the system which we refer to as MIDAS at all the border points. It’s real-time, so even from the headquarters, form all the stations, you can monitor who comes in at every entry point into Belize, so it is real time and it is done so that the supervisors – you recall we have new staff, we have new management team, and they are prepared to go to the next level in terms of investigative techniques and looking and monitoring our border, which forms the most important part of the Immigration functions – border security.”

 

According to Director of Immigration Diana Locke, Zhang flew out of the country to Canada, instead of going to the U.S., fearing possible legal troubles there. Police continue to investigate leads coming out of the questioning of both men and recovered copies of a Social Security Card during a search of Zheng Hui Lin’s Camalote residence.
