Tuesday, June 3, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: The Belize Grassroots Youth Empowerment Association (BGYEA) has been given a rough time by the Ministry of Natural Resources of the buffer zone lining the George Price Highway in a corn-growing project.
In fact, it is under an injunction barring its trespass in the zone.
But the Ministry of Agriculture, which has been allied with the Ministry of Natural Resources since 2012, says it does support the agricultural aspect of the project.
While noting that there are no plans at this time to meet with BGYEA, CEO in the Ministry Jose Alpuche reiterated that support in speaking with reporters today, while distinguishing activities in Harmonyville itself from those in the Buffer Zone.
The case for the injunction takes place next week.
