By BBN Staff: Reports reaching our newsroom are that Belize authorities in Punta Gorda have detained three boat captains from the Belize Territorial Volunteers (BTV) who were preparing to take members of the group to the Sarstoon area today.
According to reports, the BTV boat captains have been arrested and the boats have been redirected to their docks by the Belize Coast Guards.
The BTV members were on their way to the Sarstoon River to commemorate the hundred and fifty-seventh anniversary of the signing of the 1859 treaty between the UK and Guatemala despite government’s restriction of movement on the Belize side of the Sarstoon River which was imposed on Friday.
This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
