Renicle Hemmans, a labourer of Antelope Street Extension, was charged with one count of possession of a forged document, two counts of claiming upon a forged document and one count of uttering upon a false document on January 17, 2014. He was offered bail at the Belize City Magistrates Court. However, he later failed to show up for his court appearance and his surety was called to court by police on May 27. The surety at that time informed the court that he wanted to remove himself as a surety. Therefore, bail for Hemmans was revoked and he was detained and remanded at the Belize Central Prison.

Fortunately for Hemmans, the Director of Public Prosecutions forwarded directives for the case against him to be dropped. In a memorandum dated June 6, 2014 in regards to the case against Hemmans, the DPP said, “this is to state that the matter is to be withdrawn.” No reason was given for the sudden withdrawal.
