Charges dropped against immigration officer

In the Magistrate Court this morning in Belmopan, extortion charges were dropped against an Immigration officer. Hermaine Tzib was charged in May of this year after a Lebanese businessman made a complaint that he had extorted over six hundred dollars from him. A preliminary inquiry was held in November and today, the court found that there is no evidence to proceed to trial at the Supreme Court. With that, Magistrate Adolph Lucas Junior dropped the charges against Tzib.

    Thank God that our legal system is still here to make justice. you know people will always try to have their way and most of the time they will go thru the extreme to get what they want without considering the effects this may have on peoples future take for instance what this man has done to the career of this officer. hope all works out in the officer’s favor keep up the hope Mr. Tzib
