A Salvadoran immigrant is tonight behind bars after he was caught by Belmopan police for illegal entry. This is not the first time though as Juan Pablo Lopez has been previously detained and charged twice for the same wrongdoing and had been deported back to his country of origin. Despite those charges, he was sighted in Belize again and as a result was taken into custody once more. Lopez was fined a sum of three thousand dollars in default of three months in prison.
CTV3 News understands that a removal order has been issued for Lopez’s return to El Salvador after the fine has been paid or time served. Details surrounding the immigrant’s presence in Belize are yet to be determined.
