Screen_Shot_2016-04-27_at_8.16.15_PMThe face of Jose Maria Antonio Reyes, the man first detained in the Cebada area of the Chiquibul National Park last Wednesday before the shooting death of 13 year old Guatemalan National, Julio Alvarado Ruano, has been until this point unknown to Belizeans. On Friday Ruano appeared at the San Ignacio court and was imposed a charge of $1,500, which he paid and was later sent back to Guatemala.

Today for the first time since the occurrence, Reyes appeared before the media, in a post on the social media news page of Telenoticias de Peten’. The 38 year old man is featured in a video along with his father as Guatemalan news reporters recount his capture and release by Belizean Officials.


On Wednesday the 21st of April Belizean security forces were on a patrol in the Chiquibul investigating illegal clearings when at about 5:00 p.m. they detained Reyes without incident, who was found conducting illegal activities in the Chiquibul.
