The Government of Belize Press Office has issued a statement to inform the nation that the temporary delay in the replenishment of the supply of diesel oil (which has led to some gas stations not receiving their full orders), is not attributed to a purported non-payment by Government of its fuel bills.

The release states that, “the Ministry of Finance wishes to advise that this delay is solely due to unanticipated difficulties encountered by PDVSA, not by PUMA or the GOB, in the offloading of a shipment of fuel from Venezuela to Belize, and has absolutely nothing to do with any payment by GOB of its fuel bill.”

“All GOB bills are, and are expected to remain, up to date”, the release further adds.

The Ministry of Finance has been informed by PUMA that it is has made alternate arrangements to bring in diesel fuel from other sources to fill the full needs of the gas stations.

The release goes on to say that the stock of diesel will return to normal no later than the middle of this coming week and it is expected that the shipment of fuel from Venezuela will be offloaded in the next several days.

According to the release, diesel is available at stations countrywide.
