    He is being protected since he is a close friend of Gapi’s son in law who is the CEO of the Corozal Free Zone.

  2. Belizean Pride says:

    drug barons are always protected by the law unless it’s a rival then yes they’ll find the last info to arrest him, but while he’s string attached to the gov or law system they’ll be free and never charged as the regular joe with a ganga stick, lol, yes, it’s the truth.
