By BBN Staff: Yesterday, some members of the Belize Progressive Party (BPP), led by Wil Maheia of the Belize Territorial Volunteers (BTV) held a planning meeting in Punta Gorda.
As part of the weekend activities, the members made a trip to the Sarstoon island.
According to Maheia, the group was escorted out of the river by Guatemalan Armed Forces (GAF).
A video sent by Maheia shows officers from the GAF approaching the group and telling them that they are not allowed on the island.
One of the officers is seen telling the group that they can go around and inside the waters but not on the island “because there is nothing legally written yet.”
