[Female bar owner charged for sex trafficking of a minor]

Authorities in Belmopan are investigating a case of child prostitution. According to reports, between the period of 9th of February to the 9th of March, 34 year old Arely Castro, a Salvadoran Naturalized Belizean, harbored a minor at a bar in Las Flores that she owned for the purpose of child prostitution. 34 year old Arely was arrested and charged yesterday for one count of “trafficking in persons.” She was arraigned this morning at the Magistrate’s court in Belmopan for the same offence. No plea was taken from her as the case is an indictable matter. The case will be committed to the Supreme Court once the magistrate is satisfied with the evidence presented. The case was adjourned until November 26th.vlcsnap-2015-10-05-23h47m06s214
