Screen_shot_2013-10-29_at_7.46.41_PMThe case against Matthew Williams for the unlawful possession of six passports, four Belizean, one Panamanian, and one Spanish resumed today before Senior Magistrate Merlene Moody at the Orange Walk Magistrates Court.


After numerous adjournments since 2012 when the Gang Suppression Unit conducted a sting operation on William’s residence located in Smithsonian Street, Orange Walk Town, which resulted in the discovery of the passports, the case finally saw a break through approximately two weeks ago as trial began.

 

After the testimony of former OCEANA vice-president Audrey Matura Sheppard, one of the prosecutions key witnesses, the case was adjourned to today when it was expected that Williams would present his defense. Of note is that Williams was allowed to act on his own defense after he failed to procure an attorney.


But that didn’t happen as the case was adjourned to December 9th 2013 since the magistrate is on leave.

Out of the four Belizean passports found at Williams’ residence, one belonged to Matura-Shepherd.

 

As the document was inspected it was revealed that it has been tampered with as Matura-Shepherd’s picture had been replaced with that of another woman. The document went missing in 2008 when Matura-Shepherd’s vehicle was broken into.
