By BBN Staff: This morning on the Love FM Morning Show, PM Barrow asserted that Belize should vote to take Guatemala’s claim to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for a final resolution because Belize’s case is unassailable.
Barrow also explained that there is no other option to find a legal solution to the claim other than taking it to the World Court.
“We have tried to negotiate for some 50 years. Those who say don’t go to the ICJ are not really offering any alternative except to say well, there has to be a litigation risk to go the ICJ as things now stand nobody has come across and invaded us not yet. It can’t be that we can afford to be complacent and comfortable with this claim actively being pressed on us by the Guatemalans,” Barrow stated.
On Wednesday, May 8, Belizeans will go to the polls to vote in a referendum on whether or not to take Guatemala’s claim on Belize’s territory to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for final settlement.
