Tuesday, May 13, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: While the position of the Ministry of Immigration is limited because the case is before the Caribbean Court of Justice, news that homosexual activist Maurice Tomlinson had presented an arguable case to strike down the law banning gays from entering Belize raised more than a few eyebrows.

Today the Minister responsible for Immigration repeated that Belize’s practice differs from its law, and the possible removal of the latter would not affect the former.

Immigration officers, says Hulse, do not routinely ask visitors their sexual preference as a condition for entering the country.

If the law fails, as far as he is concerned, then it matters not.

The CCJ is to set a date for the case.
