NormanOn June 14th, 2012, Police Constable Norman Bol was charged with extortion upon Marilyn Matus. According to police, Matus claimed that on June 3rd, 2012 her husband, Roberto Matus, was being held pending charges of threatening words. However, PC Bol approached her and told her that if she paid him $400, he would release her husband and no charges will be levied against him. Matus paid the $400 in exchange for her husband’s release but later reported the incident.

On Tuesday, February 5th, the charge was withdrawn against PC Bol when Matus sent a letter to court stating that she does not want further court action. Bol’s attorney, Kareem Musa, told court reporters that he plans to file a civil suit against the Belize Police Department for “malicious prosecution” against his client.
