By Benjamin Flowers: Today, the American Sugar Refineries run Belize Sugar Industries (ASR/BSI) condemned an attack made against Corozal Sugar Cane Producers Association (CSCPA) Chairman, Vladimir Puck, and, as a result, has banned Everaldo Uk from its compound.

ASR/BSI categorized the December 27 attack on Puck as “unacceptable,” and stressed that the company has a zero-tolerance policy toward workplace violence and, therefore, does not
condone nor accept any form of violent behavior on its premises. The company stressed that violence on the premises is prohibited by the rules and regulations governing Tower Hill Mill.

“While individual farmers may be banned, the sanction does not extend to the farmer’s cane, which can be brought in by another person, therefore, allowing the farmer’s livelihood to not be impacted. However, the prohibited individual is not welcome to enter our premises which is important to ensure employees, farmers and other stakeholders feel they are coming to a safe environment,” ASR/BSI said.

The company also said that it is proactively enforcing the ban and will immediately seek legal and law enforcement redress for anyone who attempts to violate it.

Puck was attacked by an angry mob of farmers, one of them wielding a machete allegedly over their expulsion from the CSCPA and being treated instead as independent farmers instead. Uk was found to be at the center of the controversy and was subsequently banned.
