Did Tiger Aggregates have license for Santa Cruz explosion?

Posted: Friday, December 15, 2017. 1:38 pm CST.

BBN Staff: Tiger Aggregates, the company that set off the deadly Santa Cruz explosion which resulted in one fatality and damage to multiple homes, did not possess the requisite license or permit to conduct the blast, according to a report from the Reporter Newspaper.

According to the Reporter, sources from within the Ministry of Natural Resources confirmed that there was no record of Tiger Aggregates either applying for or receiving a license to mine in the area.

Rachel Montejo, attorney for Belize Roadway Construction, the company which subcontracted Tiger Aggregates, told the Reporter that “she couldn’t say whether the company had the documents to prove it had obtained the license, as it is not in her line of work to do so.”

On Wednesday, however, Montejo had told the media that Tiger Aggregates had taken all relevant steps to obtain the required permits. Twin Town Mayor Earl Trapp also told the media he was not aware of the mining activity taking place at Santa Cruz.

Trapp said he was informed by a representative from the company that there were excavations taking place at a mining pit on the Benque road and said the company must have moved on to Santa Cruz with the permission of some other authority.

Some have speculated that there may have been Ministerial directive but authorities remain mum on the incident.
