Mello Now A Free Man in Belize
Slovak fugitive Karol Mello has had his permanent residence in Belize returned by the authorities, meaning he can live there and enjoy all the liberties of a free man.
Mello’s lawyer Godfrey Smith told Plus jeden den the news that the residence status of Mello which was taken away on 28 August had now been returned. It took the court just 30 minutes to push through the decision in the absence of Mello himself, who possibly was aware of the outcome in advance.
Mello’s permanent residence was revoked as he had allegedly applied using false information, but today the court rejected the decision and closed the case, meaning Slovakia’s most wanted and most evasive fugitive can now live happily in his Caribbean paradise far from the Slovak authorities, who managed to let him escape twice in classic style.
