The spectacle of men being paraded before the courts as detained drug traffickers makes for a positive view in the public’s assumption that those are the real drug-traffickers, who have now been caught.
The 6 men were detained in the ‘Hidden Valley Area‘ and then appeared in San Ignacio Magistrates-Court, where they were charged with landing a plane. All were denied bail; But will no-doubt apply for supreme court bail as early as today.
But, Attorney’s say that anyone in the vicinity of the drug plane that reportedly landed late Saturday night or early Sunday morning could have been arrested, and according to Attorney Author Saldivar the men arrested claim that they were 10-12 miles away from where the plane reportedly landed.
A photo of a drug plane that was from a news report that occurred in Guyana in June 2021 (which is a FAKE) and not a photo of a drug plane that landed in Belize has also compounded the view that sensational news reporting, and the channeling source of FAKE images, and arrests being made to satisfy emotions are also a part of the problem, whilst the real drug-traffickers are having drinks and planning the next drug haul from South America.
Attorney Bryan Neal who represents 4 of the 6 accused men has said that it is for the police to prove that the 6 men detained were landing a plane; and not for his clients to prove that they were only out hunting.
The image above is from a Mexican database of pilots. This image of the reported pilot has also turned out to be a FAKE, and the true identity of the person apprehended is unknown, he is ‘reportedly the un-named person’, that was mentioned in early news reports. However he has not been taken before the courts, according to the latest information. Additionally, we cannot show you the original source of the photo of the pilot, as we did for the FAKE burnt plane photo, because it is not a public database available on the internet.
Another attorney that has weighted in on the case is attorney Arthur Saldivar, he said that the police officer who is detained is a frequent hunter who has been with the police department for almost 20 years and has a stela record.
Attorney Richard ‘Dickey’ Bradley will represent the police officer Eric Young and Mennonite Salus Penner.
The overwhelming message seems to be that the men are either clever labourers that went to help unload a crashed drug plane, or they are innocent men who went out hunting in that area. Whilst the mastermind that arranged it all and knew his drugs had crash landed, is somewhere in Belize.
