Screen_Shot_2014-08-19_at_8.00.30_PMToday, the disgraced Deputy Commissioner of Police Miguel Segura’s saga continued with much development in the case. After the announcement of his suspension from active duty yesterday, this morning the scene changed in Succotz Village in the West.

 

The fury and rage of residents from the San Jose, Succotz Village, was felt with a demonstration and blocking of the George Price Highway near the Xunantunich Archaeological site, disrupting the flow of any traffic in that area. This is in response to the residents calling for justice for, Yolando Valencia, the mother of five, who was killed in a road traffic accident early Saturday Morning. As the images depict, residents blocked the roadway with tires and lit them on fire.


The angered residents were waiting to see Segura appear at the San Ignacio Magistrates Court where he would be criminally charged. Late this afternoon, Officer Commanding the Benque Formation, Superintendent Daniel Arzu, charged Segura on 6 separate offences including; Manslaughter by Negligence, Causing Death by Careless Conduct, Drove Motor Vehicle Without due Care and Attention, Driving with Alcohol Concentration above the Prescribed Limit, Negligent Grievous Harm and failing to alter direction to give way.


Segura then was arraigned at the Belmopan Magistrate Court and the matter was adjourned until October 10th 2014. Bail was granted in the sum of $6,000.00 plus one surety of the same amount or two sureties of $3,000.00 each on the condition that:


1. He does not interfere with the witness,

2. Report to the Benque Police Station every Friday

3. Appear at every court date

4. Not be charged for any offence while on bail


While charges were levied, Segura who is represented by Attorney Dennis Arnold, managed to escape jail time and he is scheduled to re-appear in court on October 9th. We understand that Segura’s urine specimen that was sent for testing registered at 205 which is over the prescribed limit.

 

After five hours of demonstration, the traffic flow was stabilized and authorities from the fire department doused the burning tires and helped to get the debris off the street.
