Monday, April 1st, 2013

The Chief Prosecutor for Women’s Affairs in the Guatemalan Court was on Ambergris Caye and paid a courtesy call to both the Officer Commanding the San Pedro Police Department Superintendent of Police Luis Castellanos and the Mayor of San Pedro Town Daniel Guerrero. Licenciada Leonora Castillo of Guatemala City was vacationing with her family on Ambergris Caye, and said that while on the island, she took time out of her vacation schedule to make a call on Castellanos who she knows for a long time.

In speaking to The San Pedro Sun, Castillo said that she was honored to have met the Mayor of San Pedro Town and members of the Council. “Both Castellanos and Mayor Guerrero received me very warmly. They instantly made me feel at home. I took the opportunity to meet with Castellanos, who has attended regional training together with me, to briefly see some of the work he does. As part of his work with the community, Castellanos was instrumental in having me meet the Mayor,” the Guatemalan Women’s Prosecutor said.

On Thursday March 28th, Councilor Gabriel “Gaby” Nunez along with Castellanos took the Castillo family to visit the reef, where they got the opportunity to snorkel at Hol Chan Marine Reserve. “I am happy for the invitation extended to do some of the aquatic activities that we are not accustomed to in our country. San Pedro Ambergris Caye, as well as Belize, is beautiful. I will be happy to do my part in sharing the wonderful experiences I had with my colleagues back at home. I will also encourage them to visit San Pedro Town. I am in love with this place and I hope to return in the near future,” said Castillo of her experience on the island.

Superintendent Castellanos commented to The San Pedro Sun that he holds Castillo in high esteems since she is a very experienced and well respected prosecutor in Guatemala.
