BREAKING: Supreme Court  denies injunctions for terminated Port workers; Opposition Leader issues condemnation

Posted: Friday, July 24, 2020. 1:57 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Supreme Court Justice Sonya Young has denied the injunction requested by the Attorney General on behalf of 36 redundant former employees of the Port of Belize Limited.

Leader of the Opposition Johnny Briceno, announcing the decision in the House, said this should not happen in an independent Belize.

The Port’s action, he said, strike at the very heart of what it means to be Belizean – the right of association, movement and to work – and if they get away with it, it would roll back a century of gains dating back to colonial times.

And he condemned the decision to send the Gang Suppression Unit in to quell the disturbance. Their record, he said, was infamous, recalling his own experience with them in September 2017.

He also recalled the sugar riots in February 2009 and called once again for the disbandment of the elite tactical unit and investigation into who ordered their involvement.

He called it unusual that the receivership had been in effect for ten years. Either they are not making money, in which case efforts should be made to get new owners, or they are in which case they should open their books to justify their decision.
