So far the investigation has been pointing out that it is only 3 of them involved and we do not have any information to indicate that any other Belizeans or any other national have been involved. So far we are working very closely with the bank and as soon as we have that information, if there are more charges, more charges will be levied on them.

The Mexicans are residents of Cancun and will be tried in the specific districts where they withdrew the money.   They were all denied bail and are to return to court on March 21st.
