Thirty year old Abbas Khan, the naturalized Belizean businessman of number #18 3rd Street Corozal Town, who absconded from Orange Walk Police around 2:15 on Monday March 4th 2013, is tonight behind bars once again. CTV3 News has been able to confirm that late yesterday evening Mexican authorities handed Khan over to Corozal Police. The 38 year old appeared before the Corozal Magistrate Court this afternoon where he was charged for escape and withholding of passports.
Khan was remanded to the Kolbe Correctional Facility and is scheduled to reappear in court on January 9th 2013. Viewers might recall that on Sunday March 3rd 2013, Belmopan Police picked up Abbas Khan from the Orange Walk Police Station where he was being held for a commitment warrant issued for money he owned. He was scheduled to appear before the Belize City Supreme Court for the commitment warrant on Monday March 4th.
Belmopan Police took Khan to Corozal and searched his residence where they found five passports for the Republic of India belonging to Tajinder Singh, Gagandeep Singh, Parminder Singh Baryar, Gurdeep Singh and Surjit Singh. When interrogated by police Khan stated that none of the individuals were in Belize.
He; however, could not give a proper account as to why the passports were in his possession. Khan was informed that he would be charged for unlawful possession of passports by the Corozal Police Department after his hearing at the Belize City Supreme Court. With that, he was transferred back to the Orange Walk Police Station where he was detained in a holding area and not a cell as is customary since he was suffering from some type of sickness. And it was at around 2:15 Monday morning that Khan absconded from police. As a result of Khan’s escape three police officers were placed on disciplinary charges. They are Officer Roxanne Louis, Corporal Uk and Officer Reginald Cacho.
