Three well-known Belize city men who are no strangers to police have taken out a lawsuit against the Attorney General for wrongful imprisonment after being remanded at the Belize Central Prison for 11 months for the murder of John Paul Saldivar who was found in a shallow grave in the Rocky Point area of San Pedro on January 30th, 2009.

The three men are 31-year-old Micah Thompson, who is presently an employee with the Ministry of Works and a resident of #46 Neal’s Pen Road, 31-year-old businessman and well known figure, Shelton “Pinky” Tillett and Charles Woodeye, also an employee of Ministry of Works and a resident of #24 Dolphin Street in Belize City.

While their suit included malicious prosecution by the end of the men’s attorney, Agnes Seguro Gillet’s submission that suit had been dropped and she indicated to the court that the men were only proceeding with the wrongful imprisonment suit.The case is being heard before Justice Minnett Hafiz Bertran in the Supreme Court. The Attorney General’s Office is represented by Nigel Hawk  who is being  assisted by Liliana Swift.
