Belize Fisheries Department boat intercepted by Guatemalan Coast Guard
Tuesday, October 13th, 2015. Chrisbert Garcia Reporting: Belize Media Group has received confirmed reports that another Guatemalan Military incursion into Belizean waters took place this morning and turned into a confrontation between their vessel and one of our Fisheries Department vessels.
The Fisheries boat was travelling down the Sarstoon River when it was intercepted by a Guatemalan military vessel which interfered with the fisheries officers, trying to harass them as the Guatemalans have reportedly and continuously do in the Sarstoon area.
A Facebook post made by leader of the Belize Territorial Volunteers (BTV) and Political aspirant under the Belize Progressive Party (BPP), Mr. Wil Maheia, stated that our Government has not protested despite the fact that the Guatemalans continue to harass our people.
Maheia also expressed his pride in the Fisheries officers for standing up to the Guatemalan Military and returning home safely. When we spoke to Mr. Maheia earlier today, he told us that his outcry is not politically driven but is genuine and stems from his love for our country.
