Fine for Convicted Belizean Fisherman in Guatemala

Iginio Canto Bacab

Belizean fisherman Iginio Canto Bacab remains behind bars in a detention facility in Livingston, Guatemala, awaiting monies to pay his fines for illegal possessions of lobster and conch out of season. The Caledonia, Corozal native was picked up by Guatemalan authorities a week ago, along with two Guatemalan nationals with product that Guatemalan authorities say they were trying to smuggle into the country. A total of two hundred and sixteen pounds of whole lobster; twenty pounds of lobster tail and eighty pounds of queen conch were recovered. Once the fine is paid he is expected to return home, according to Guatemalan media reports.
