Honduran National charged for failure to comply with his visitor’s permit.

Edwin Montoya

A Honduran national who was granted sixteen days stay in Belize headed to court today on immigration offences. Thirty-eight year old Edwin Delgado Montoya caught the attention of the authorities when he went to the police station seeking help over the weekend. Montoya ran out of fuel when he was taking friends home after a party at his house at Mahogany Heights. Police became suspicious and when they checked his passport, they noted that Montoya had entered the country legally via the Dangriga seaport on November fourth, 2013 but was only given a visitor’s permit to stay in the country until November twentieth.  He was promptly handed over to Immigration personnel on Monday and was taken to court this morning to answer to a single charge of failure to comply with his visitor’s permit. According to Montoya, he stayed in the country longer than anticipated because he was running his father’s business. He wasted no time, pleaded guilty and was fined one thousand dollars which he paid by this afternoon.

    Kudos to the police, excellent job. You are now doing Immigration work. Way to go. The immigration boys are too busy CASTRORIZNG the country.

    Now, can we do the same with all of the illegal Indians, Sri Lankans, Nigerians and Chinese in the country? Deport them all. Put an end to CASTRORIZING……. Oops, I meant illegal immigration.
