By BBN Staff: Belizeans traveling to Guatemala will notice that the Guatemalan Immigration Offices have proudly installed new maps of Guatemala that include Belize as part of their territory.
Last week, an advertisement from the Guatemalan Government on their official Facebook page also included the map of Belize as part of Guatemala. In addition, the new design of Guatemalan drivers’ licenses released this month include Belize as part of Guatemala on it.
Up to now, the Belize Government has not issued any statement on this action by Guatemala which has angered Belizeans across the country.
In April of this year, Guatemalan citizens went to the polls and voted yes to taking Guatemala’s long-standing dispute on Belize’s territory to the International Court of Justice (ICJ).
The Government of Belize is currently engaged in a nationwide education campaign on the ICJ.
On April 10, 2019, Belizeans will be asked to vote in favor or against taking Guatemala’s long-standing claim on Belize’s continental, insular and maritime territory to the ICJ.
The decision taken by the ICJ is final and cannot be appealed.
