Charged with stabbing but her nationality is questionable

Shirley Lambey Arnold

In court news, a well known Belize City sanitation worker was convicted of an immigration offence today. Shirley Lambey Arnold claims she has been living in Belize since she was five years old when her family relocated from Honduras. But when she was detained by police for allegedly stabbing another woman, Lambey was found in possession of a passport that belonged to a friend of her mother’s. She also could not provide police with her own documents and was charged with Failure to Produce a Visitor’s Permit. Lambey appeared in court this evening before Magistrate Albert Hoare and pleaded guilty to the charge. She was fined one thousand dollars, but could not pay it forthwith as ordered by the Magistrate. As a result, she will spend six months in prison.  Lambey is also being deemed a prohibited immigrant and authorities at the Immigration Department are seeking a court order to have her deported to Honduras at the end of her jail term. As for the alleged stabbing, charges have not yet been levied in that case.

    Stop the double standard Belize,how many undocumented immigrants have committed heinous crimes in Belize and are allowed to remain in Belize after been incarcerated.

    Plz deport this woman out of our country. She attempted to stab someone and it is not the first time. A couple of years ago, I was working at the door of a local club here in OW and when i refused her entry since she was unwilling to pay the price, she took out a knife and placed it to my neck. I was not expecting this since we dont do such things but i guess this woman does. She seems to always be walking with a knife ready to injure anyone. Plz take this scum out of our country. We have enough problems already. The sad part is that she is such a waste that she wouldnt even do good in Honduras.

    I agree with Elgin Martinez about the immigrants, but the other side of the Story is that immigration Dept. allowed immigrants that has a bad criminal record to receive Nationality up to now and all this is been decided by the Director Ruth May she is the one in charge and the one to blame. for not deporting the criminal and keeping them into our Country.
