Attorney Antoinette Moore sworn in as temporary Supreme Court judge

Antoinette Moore

Attorney Antoinette Moore was sworn in on Friday as a temporary judge of the Supreme Court. Moore is assigned to the Belmopan criminal session which deals with cases from Belmopan, San Ignacio, and Benque Viejo del Carmen. There are a reported seventy cases that the temporary judge will be dealing with. Among the cases on the calendar for Judge Moore, is the sensational murder of a young mother, Raylene Dyer. It is believed that she was beheaded and thrown into the river in October 2011 so that her baby could be stolen. Four persons were charged including Araceli Cahueque along with Darren Banner, Jason Anderson and Brandon Budna.  Cahueque is accused of paying the men to dispose of Dyer having allegedly lied to her boyfriend that she was pregnant. Moore is a highly respected human rights lawyer who gained prominence as an attorney representing the Mayas versus the government in a number of cases involving land rights as well as oil drilling on communal Maya land. Moore is also a member of the Human Rights Commission. Despite her appointment, the Supreme Court will still be short of a judge because there is word that Judge Rita Olivetti will be leaving in March after sitting on the bench for about a year as judge of the Supreme Court.
