Saldivar Granted $20K Bail

Richard “Dickie” Bradley

In most cases, persons charged for firearm and ammunition offenses are automatically remanded to the Belize Central Prison. That’s because the Firearms Act makes the offense non-bailable. Saldivar’s attorney, Richard “Dickie’ Bradley, however, says that the Act also has provisions that allow the attorney to present special circumstances to the magistrate for bail consideration.

“At the end of the day we also pointed out that the law which requires that a magistrate is not to grant bail a lot of persons have overlooked the fact that that law also says a magistrate for special reasons can grant a person bail. We provided various special reasons as the law requires and she asked questions and she wrote down the matter. In the end our older generation would say, ‘God is great’, that the malice against Arthur Saldivar has come to an end at this phase.”
