By Zoila Palma: Centaur Communications Corporation Limited has issued a statement saying that while it respects the right of the Belize National Teachers Union (BNTU) to take industrial action, the information that the company has overdue taxes is false.
“As of April 15, 2021, Centaur Communications has paid in full all taxes and fees due to the Government of Belize,” the company said.
In addition, Centaur Communications says that it has remained committed to schools in Corozal, Orange Walk and Belize Districts by providing free cable and internet access in recognition of the need to shift to distance learning.
The company says that it also offered reduced internet service rates to in need students.
The company pledged to continue to provide support to educators and students.
