Team returns but FFB Executive still detained in USA

Rawell Pelayo

The Jaguars are back in Belize, but F.F.B. Vice President, Rawell Pelayo, is not. Pelayo was nabbed reportedly by the Drug Enforcement Agency as he passed through Houston on his way to Portland to join Team Belize for game one against the United States.  That happened on July eighth, and since then the only confirmation is that Pelayo is currently held in a Federal Detention Center in Houston to be released at an unknown date. News Five asked Marlon Kuylen about Pelayo today.

 

Marlon Kuylen, Executive F.F.B.

“There is no information that is forthcoming to us we have tried but you know how the U.S. is they are tight lipped about  it and we can’t get any information at all about it. Unfortunately we will just have to wait and see.”

 

News Five spoke to the family of Pelayo this afternoon. They told us that they have had no contact with him and the only information they have is what they’ve heard on the news.

    Drugs,drugs and more drugs. The americans dont forgeth it dont matter how many years ago you made your “shipment”. I was very surprise that he travel to the USA and that they gave him a visa. I guess everything was a trick and he belive it. The familiy know very good why he is detain and most of us Belizeans that follow the news from a long time. You cant cover the sun with one finger. Its a shame that he was allowed to be involved with sports and in the big spot light for team BELIZE. I guess $$$$$$ but very dirty.

    we all know his alliance and if the USA DEA is after him, he is not a good man. once in that hand you can forget him he will not return to Belize, any soon. Thanks to the US government we are taking out all the corruption in our nation one by one, what the PUP and the UDP can’t and will not do. Belize will be safe but it will take the Us gov., more CIA and FBI agents in Belize and we ask that the local people support the US Gov., agents in there mission, to clean Belize.
    Thanks to the USA.

    US just found a way around or extradition laws.

    THE UNITED STATES DOES THIS TO MANY FOREIGNERS, THEY GIVE YOU VISA AND TRAP YOU AT THEIR BOARDERS. NOT ONLY BECAUSE OF CRIMINAL ACTIVITY, BUT ALSO IF YOU HAVE OVERSTAYED, EVEN IF YOU MENTION IT AT THE EMBASSY THEY STILL TRICK YOU INTO BELIEVING YOU GOT A CHANCE TO GO WITH A VALID VISA, ONLY TO FIND OUT YOU ARE HUMILIATED AT THEIR AIRPORT AND DEPORTED. YOU LOOSE YOUR VISA MONEY, YOUR TICKET MONEY AND ANY OTHER INVESTMENT YOU MADE PRIOR TO FLYING. THE US HAS A BAD HABIT BEING CONS, LAIRS, DECEITFUL ARROGANT GROUP OF PEOPLE. THIS HAPPENED TO A FRIEND OF MINE, WHO AFTER BEING TOLD CANNOT ENTER THE US TILL AFTER 10 YEARS SINCE BEING DEPORTED IS STILL UNABLE TO ENTER THE US. SHE ONLY TRIES IN ORDER TO VISIT HER FAMILY AND IS DENIED THAT HUMAN RIGHT…THEY TALK ABOUT HUMAN RIGHTS. THEY ARE HYPOCRITES PROMOTING HUMAN RIGHTS ONLY FOR THEIR PERSONAL LGB INTEREST. BELIZE SHOULD BOYCOTT US PRODUCTS, AND ANY INVESTMENT WITH US. BE TOURIST IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY BELIZE AND STAND UP FOR YOUR COUNTRY AGAINST BULLIES SUCH AS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

    People, Belize can’t live
    Without the USA.
    from one Belizean to all Belizean
    People need to educate themselves
    Before making stupid comments

    @open your eyes:-you are one of the stupid ones who leaves BELIZE AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN TELL YOURSELF THAT YOU CAN’T LIVE LIFE without adapting to the American lifestyle….many of us here in Belize live our lives very great without America, so speak for yourself

  9. only in BZE says:

    I agree 100% with the US. If you broke their law you have to pay for it. The people that are NOT wellcome is the ones that “over stayed their visas, deportees ( after finishing a jail sentence) or drug dealers or drug lords. I think that is fair. We have our own laws also. If you over stay your visa you go jail and a big $$$ fine. And YES we need the U. S. A. To start cleaning the country from drug cartels and sickos that come to Belize to hide from all over the world. For training our soldiers, education,food, clothing, for everything we need them. America is a great country and I love BELIZE thats why I allways come back.

    Last time Belize law enforcement put in jail a tourist teameyer coming from Florida, just for a possession of Mariguana . his prents bail him out, cancelling their vacations, so he was a turist, Don’t get surprice people. USA, Will do same
