Screen_Shot_2017-08-30_at_8.00.57_PMThis morning three men detained by Corozal Police in connection to a chopping incident that occurred in Patchakan Village on Saturday August 26th, appeared before the Corozal Magistrate Patricia Arana, to answer to criminal charges.

Twenty year old Cesar Gomez, 28 year old Luis Cob and 25 year old Walter Gomez were all read different charges.

Cesar Gomez was charged with maim, and he is accused of chopping 23 year old Diego Ek’s feet and hands.

Cob was charged with common assault, and he is accused of threatening Ek.


And Walter Gomez was charged with abetment to commit maim. Police officials accuse him of providing a machete to his brother Cesar to commit the assault on Ek.


Magistrate Arana did not take a plea from the men, advising that she will await the guidance of the Director of Public Prosecutions since maim is an indictable matter for the Supreme Court, but the other charges are matters to be heard at her court.


In Court the Police prosecutor objected to bail, on the basis that the accused have had a history of interfering with the victim and his family. Magistrate Arana indicated that she would remand the trio until October 25th.

The victim sustained cuts to his feet and hands and continues to receive treatment at the Northern Regional Hospital in Orange Walk Town.
