Karol Mello gets permanent residence restored

Last month, the Belizean Immigration Department withdrew all charges against Karol Mello, the Slovak national wanted in connection with two alleged murders in Slovakia. The 7newsbelize.com website wrote that withdrawing of the charges signalled the end of the fight from the government of Belize in trying to eject Mello from the country. The web newspaper added that there was still the issue of the revocation of Mello’s permanent residency, which remained in effect and which was decided by the Minister of Immigration, Godwin Hulse.

Mello and his attorneys filed a claim a few months ago in the Supreme Court, in which they were going to sue the Belizean government to get back his permanent residency status. But before the opening arguments at the start of the trial, which was scheduled for Monday, September 17, the Government Crown Counsel notified the court that the Minister of Immigration reversed it. This meant that the permanent residency was restored, and this was yet another abrupt end to the case, 7newsbelize.com wrote.

Mello, the Slovak fugitive who has been charged with organising at least three murders back in 2003 and 2004, was detained by Belizean police on July 11 as a result of a police operation organised by Interpol in cooperation with Slovak police. Although Slovak officials sought Mello’s swift extradition, legal disputes have kept him in Belize.
