By BBN Staff: A press release issued from Guatemala and directed to the Government of Belize earlier today, refutes our country’s version of events given about the shooting death of Guatemalan minor Julio Alvarado.
He was allegedly shot by a Belize Defense Force (BDF) soldier in the Chiquibul area on Wednesday and the release states that since 1999, a total of 10 Guatemalans have been shot by our soldiers along the adjacency zone.
The release has attached to it, a list which indicates that there was one Guatemalan killed in 1999, one in 2000, three in 2001, three in 2012, another in 2014 and the last one a couple days ago.
It ends by challenging our government to provide proof that Danny Conorque was actually shot by Guatemalans instead of making accusations.
