By BBN Staff: In a Special Agreement signed in May 2015, Belize and Guatemala agreed to hold a referendum on whether or not to have the ongoing territorial dispute settled in the International Court of Justice.
However, last week the Guatemalan Congress met and voted to have their referendum separately.
The House of Senate is to have a special hearing in Belmopan next Wednesday where it is expected that they will also vote to have our referendum separately.
We will have an update on this story next week.
