Mello’s Family says the Slovak government wants him for charges he already beat

Karol Mello

Late this evening the family of Mello issued a statement. They claim that Mello has not been on the run and that he is being persecuted by the (quote) corrupt government of Slovakia. The family says that in fact Mello has been cleared by the Polish courts. The family says when he was apprehended on Wednesday, his family’s credentials were confiscated and that he not yet been read his rights, nor has he been fed, allowed a change of clothes or even to brush his teeth. Says the release, “Mello’s counsel is in possession of court documents that prove that he is a victim of his own government’s false prosecution in this matter. Their claim is to have him returned to face charges that he has already been cleared of, and is nothing more than a corrupt government extorting an honest businessman. The Slovakian Government has been criticized and accused of not only disregarding Mr. Mello’s personal rights and freedoms, but malevolently ignoring International laws and court decisions. They have illegally made failed attempts to go into foreign lands and with untruths attempted to persuade foreign courts to charge or extradite Mr. Mello back to Slovakia.” A full text of the lengthy release from the family can be seen at channel5belize.com.

    How can the government in Poland clear someone of a crime committed in Slovakia? Can GOB clear someone of a crime committed anywhere else? That’s not how sovereignty works.

    His claims sound like those of every other fugitive criminal trying to escape trial on the merits for their crimes.

    Anyway, they say Slovakia is beautiful this time of year. He’ll have a wonderful visit there.

  2. it's just that simple says:

    Wanted in Slovakia for murder. Arrested across the border in Poland, and provided bail. Now moved to San Pedro for some sun and real estate adventure. He is innocent until proven guilty. But to say Poland cleared him, seems to ignore that his homeland of Slovakia, where murders took place, is the country of ultimate jurisdiction. If Slovakia is so– corrupt, he should have moved to the Hague, or hired a lawyer there. Instead he moves to Belize—> #5 in the world for homicides, and #??? in the world for corruption. As any real estate agent will tell you it is all about location, location, location.

    “Mello is wanted in Slovakia in connection with an attempted gangland hit that resulted in the murder of a woman and young boy near Bratislava in 2004. ” At least he is not accused to be a child molester.

    Don’t worry you are in the right country for corruption just make sure you pay off somebody Ina this ya gov. And you gone free.

    It’s so ironic how the GOB extradite their own Citizens to the US to face charges for crimes that they might have committed while residing in the US and yet they’re fighting to stop the extradition of this foreign fugitive to his country of origin bunch of idiots.

    Every human being, Belizean or otherwise, is entitled to DUE PROCESS! If we as Belizeans promote no due process for some, one day we may ALL end up with NO DUE PROCESS for ANYONE! Our rush to judgement and condemnation does not serve the interests of justice. To this end, we have a 93% non-conviction rate to prove it! DUE PROCESS for EVERYONE!
