U.S. Deports Former VP of Belize’s Soccer Federation

SAN JUAN – Rawell Pelayo, former vice president of the Soccer Federation of Belize, has been deported back to his homeland from the United States after spending almost two years in custody on suspicion of drug trafficking.

Pelayo returned to his home in Orange Walk late Tuesday night, hours after U.S. marshals escorted him off an airplane and handed him over to the Belize Police Department, media outlets said.

Pelayo was arrested in July 2013 in Houston while traveling with the Belizean national team to compete in the Gold Cup soccer tournament in the United States.

He spent 21 months in a U.S. prison, but was apparently never charged, Belize’s Channel News 5 reported.

The Federation’s president, Ruperto Vicente, confirmed that Pelayo continues as a member of the organization, according to local media.
