Posted: Friday, April 26, 2019. 1:18 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: Today, the Ministry of National Security issued a statement clarifying reports by Wil Maheia regarding his attempt to visit the Sarstoon on April 25, 2019.

Mahiea had shared a video interview in which he explained that while he and a group of Belizeans had planned to visit the Sarstoon, they were blocked at the mouth of the river by Guatemalan boats.

The Ministry informs Belizeans that officers of the Belize Defence Force and the Belize Coast Guard at the Forward Operating Base (Sarstoon FOB) are completely aware of the events that occurred.

The Sarstoon FOB reported to the Ministry that around 10:30 am on April 25, they saw a civilian vessel coming from the direction of Punta Gorda approaching the mouth of the Sarstoon.

The vessel stopped about 1.5 km from the FOB.

 The patrol noticed that upon seeing the civilian vessel, the Guatemalan Armed Forces base deployed two Metal Shark vessels and a Columbian-type boat towards them.

 The BDF and BCG also deployed one of their Metal Shark boats towards the civilian vessel but noted that it had turned around and was heading back towards Punta Gorda.
