Reports coming out of Guatemalan tonight indicate that a Guatemalan national, suspected of killing his wife, Cristina Siekavizza, used a fake name to fraudulently obtain a Belize passport. The man, identified as Roberto Barreda de Leon reportedly arrived in Mexico in January 2012 using the fraudulent Belize passport issued in the name of forty year old Carlos Roberto Barriero Villareal.
His two children reportedly also had false passports, although Mexican and Guatemalan media reports did not specify if these false passports are from Belize. Roberto Barreda de Leon was arrested in Mexico as he went to pick up his children from school on November 7th after being on the run for two years.
Police used unmarked vehicles and carried out the arrest discreetly so as not to cause alarm. He was then processed and shipped to Guatemala where he faces charges for the murder of his wife, violence against women and obstruction of justice.
Barreda is the prime suspect in the disappearance of Cristina Siekavizza , which occurred in July 2011. He fled the country with their children in August of that year and was captured in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico, last Friday. He was monitored via global positioning software on his cell phone prior to his arrest last Friday. Reports are that De Leon traveled several times to Belize where he would meet with a Belizean lawyer who was in charge of giving him the funds sent by his parents and friends. It is said that after the death of the lawyer, De Leon would meet with his parent’s here in Belize.
