Shadir Marin Granted Bail After Being Remanded for Firearm Offense

Shadir Marin

Tonight, twenty-five year old manager, Shadir Marin, who manages the San Pedro Water Express is out on bail of seven thousand dollars granted this afternoon by Supreme Court Judge, Justice Troadio “John” Gonzalez in the Supreme Court.  A local disc jockey is accusing Marin of assaulting him with a firearm for which he is charged with Aggravated Assault with a Firearm upon Eddison Usher.  The incident allegedly happened on April eleventh, but it was until this Tuesday that Marin was taken to court. He was denied bail and remanded to the Belize Central Prison, but today his bail application was dealt with expeditiously. It was filed soon after Marin’s court arraignment by attorney Leslie Mendez. Today, senior attorney Godfrey Smith appeared on his behalf seeking bail on the grounds that Shadir has no previous convictions and is a man of good character.  Usher reported to police that he was playing music at a fundraising event at Hour Bar. Marin rode over his music wires and as a result, the two got into a verbal confrontation. Usher further claims that Marin lowered the window of his vehicle and pointed a firearm at him.  Marin’s next court date is set for July twenty-eighth, 2015 in the courtroom of Magistrate Herbert Panton. The bail application was heard in his absence since arrangements were being made to get him out before the end of the day

    The ordinary Belizean or as our DPM puts it ”normal person” needs to look at this as a shining example of what money and connections can get you in this corrupt country. This is an abnormal person of good character and has no previous convictions… well let me be the first to say that the elderly woman that got arrested the other day because she was in the wrong place at the wrong time when a firearm was found must be classified as a hardened criminal in the eyes of the ”law”. When will this aristocratic absurdity end? How can we the normal people accept the purchase of law and justice as normal? Yes the purchase of justice because some attorney, police officer and magistrate must be a few dollars richer today. As for Mr. Usher my advice to you is RUN!!! Run for your life because by all accounts you probably won’t make it back to court on the 28th… when the police is in someones pocket anything is possible or the other senario maybe favourable for you. You may get an ”out of court settlement” to make this go away after all this is Belize, the promise land of the corrupt.

    One law for the normal belizeans and another law for the politicians and their family. What else is new.

    Another eye opener for those that keep living the blind life. Once you have strings attached you can do as you please because the law can be at your favor anytime you do a crime, for sure you can skip it.
    “some guys just don’t do jail, they get bail” how can this be mein? when will the Jewel start to put a stop to this corruption before we end like Mexico our compadres.

    I totally agree with Roy comments.

    Unfortunately, most people refused to accept the fact that there is no level playing field in Belize. If one has a name, wealth and fame and is known by the powers that be. “NO PROBLEM” One can literally get away with murder. What else is new? Belize! Faceless, nameless, poverty stricken Belizeans have no role to play in the scheme of things in the Jewel.
