Belize City Stevedore, Mark Gentle, is on remand at the Belize Central Prison for one count of deadly means of harm and one count of wounding upon Radman Welch whom he allegedly shot on May 12.

Gentle appeared before Chief Magistrate, Anne Marie Smith, where the charges were read. He was represented by attorney Alifah Elrington-Hyde who made a submission asking for the charge to be withdrawn since the virtual complainant had retracted his statement and requested that no further court action be taken. Elrington-Hyde said she had a memorandum in her possession but Chief Magistrate Smith said her office had received no such directive from the DPP’s office; therefore, the case would proceed. Due to the nature of the offense, bail was not granted to Gentle and he will be on remand at the Belize Central Prison until his next court appearance on June 27.
