BTL not off hook for advertising, Senior Counsel says
Thursday, August 13th, 2015 Aaron Humes Reporting: We reported last week on the battle between Belize Telemedia Limited (BTL) and concerned citizens led by Senior Counsel Lisa Shoman,
who complained about negative images of women depicted in various billboards and on Facebook that appeared to be endorsed by the company.
The company’s apology last week and offer to train staff on diversity sensitivity does not go far enough, Shoman told us today, noting that the apology was based on offense and that the company has not committed so far to any proposed reforms or even to find out who was responsible and issue sanctions.
Shoman told us that following her open reply to the BTL statements this week, she understands that the issue is again before the Board of Directors.
There has been no indication of any boycott or organized protest directed against the state-owned company.
