driverMinister of National Security John Saldivar’s driver, Orlando Castillo has been formally charged for manslaughter by negligence after he knocked down caretaker, Vallan Paul Cucul of the Toledo District. Reports suggest that sometime on Saturday Cucul was riding his black and red beach cruiser bicycle in Camalote Village when he may have veered into the highway and was hit from behind by a vehicle, killing him on the spot.


Police received the call around 7:00p.m and their investigation led them to the house of Saldivar’s driver, who was arrested and charged after it was determined that he was driving a Volkswagen Jetta car. The vehicle in question belongs to the Ministry of National Security and when he hit Cucul, Castillo did not stop to render aid. The car had minor damages to its front portion.  Castillo, who was arrested on the same night of the incident, was charged by police on Sunday for: Manslaughter by Negligence, Causing Death by Careless Conduct, Drove Motor Vehicle without Due Care and Attention, Failed to Stop and Render Aid, Failed to Report an Accident and Failed to Provide a Specimen, either blood or urine sample. Castillo was formally arraigned in the Belmopan Magistrate’s Court yesterday where he was offered bail of $8,000 and is to reappear in court on September 7th 2015.
