Day three of the Noh Mul case was heard at the Corozal Magistrates Court before Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith today. But still there is no verdict. The process has been a long one as witnesses, most of them from the media take the stand one by one to be questioned by the prosecution and then cross examined by attorney for the defendants Bryan Neal.
At the end of today’s hearing three witnesses had taken the stand and the case was adjourned for June 9th. Since the beginning of the case, the defendant’s Denny Grijalva and his wife, owners of Demar’s Stone Company Javier Nunez foreman of Demar’s Stone Company and excavator Operator Emir Cruz have been in court. They are yet to take stand.
As previously mentioned all the defendants were criminally charged on the 28th of June 2013 for the destruction of Noh Mul, an archaeological monument that sits in the area of San Juan Village in the Orange Walk District.
The Grijalva’s along with Emil Cruz were charged for willfully damaging an ancient monument and removing earth from an ancient monument while Nuñez was charged for causing the destruction of an ancient monument.
We will keep following the case and bring you the developments and of course the verdict as it is handed down.
