Belizean murderer among 16 fugitives wanted by various countries
Interpol has released wanted posters for 16 fugitives wanted by police locally, regionally and internationally for various crimes, including murder.
Among those on the list is Belizean Miguel Matus, wanted for the murder of Pricella Tzib, 17, which occurred in October of 2005. He was convicted of murder and given a life sentence.
In February 2010, however, Matus escaped from prison authorities when he was taken to Bennett’s Dental Clinic on Newtown Barracks.
Reports are that after his dental checkup, Matus borrowed a warden’s cell phone to place a call, and then the group waited outside the dentist’s office building.
At about 11:40 a.m., a grey Mitsubishi Galant drove up to the premises, and Matus absconded.
Interpol has classified Matus as armed and dangerous. If seen, he is not to be approached; anyone who spots him is advised to instead call the nearest police station.
Also, Vostry Boris of the Czech Republic, who is a dual citizen of both Belize and the Czech Republic, is wanted for stealing millions of dollars from a company in the Czech Republic.
In 2010, the Prague High Court handed down a jail sentence of 9 years to Boris, in his absence, for causing losses of $845 million USD to the Harvard Industrial Holding that was created to buy shares in state companies that were being sold to the public.
Other men that Interpol has listed as wanted are Antonio Christian Decent Polanco, wanted on triple murder charges by the Dominican Republic; Jaimi Osmin Valle Pleits, wanted by El Salvador for murder; Steven Douglas Skinner, who is wanted by Canada on charges of second degree murder; and Rafael Caro Quintero, wanted by the United States on charges of racketeering, kidnapping and murder of a federal agent, among others.
Interpol believes the men are somewhere in the Americas. If anyone sees, or knows the whereabouts of, any of the men, he or she is urged to call the nearest police station.
