Bernadette Fischer takes Unitedville resident to court

Mike Juan

As we told you, the eviction notices were delivered to the residents in 2011. They ignored it, but the matter got new life after Bernadette Fischer took one of the residents to court. The resident is new to the area, and actually is occupying a plot which belongs to her father. With his permission, she placed a home there one month ago, and that caught Fischer’s attention. We are told that twice Police officers, as many as ten of them, visited the property to tell the young lady that she would have to leave. When that didn’t work, she received a summons to appear at the San Ignacio Magistrate’s Court this morning. She did, but Magistrate Nardia Morgan informed the parties that the matter would need to be heard in the Supreme Court, and not at the level of the Magistrate’s Court. Today Chairman Mike Juan told News Five that the young lady will not be moved.

 

Mike Juan, Chairman, Unitedville

“One of my villagers, I know her, she came to me and I told her don’t remove the house. Don’t remove the house beucase Bernadette Fischer is not the chairman; I am the one that runs the village. And I am on their side and the commissioner said he will arrange that problem. So at this point, Bernadette Fischer will not get what she wants to get. It is the people, the twenty-six families that will get their land. She might get something else, but not in the village here.”

 

News Five understands that in court today claimant Bernadette Fischer told the magistrate that she and Commissioner Wilbert Vallejos had a deal to subdivide the five acre property and charge the residents for their lots.
