Friday, July 17th 2015. BMG: Belize has sent its bill for damage caused to the Barrier Reef by a Guatemalan military vessel which ran aground near Glovers Reef Atoll last month.
The gunboat caused $46, 000 of estimated damage after drifting into Belizean waters on its way to Mexico.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Wilfred Elrington told reporters on Thursday that they still await a response from the Guatemalan authorities and that these things take time. He expects that they will respond in due time.
The vessel has since been removed and towed home.
