Breaking: Despite ‘serious shortcomings’ in Caribbean Court of Justice case against Trinidad & Tobago, Belize brown sugar gets favorable ruling

Posted: Tuesday, February 1, 2022. 12:27 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: The Caribbean Court of Justice has ruled that Belize brown sugar is entitled to protection under the Common External Tariff (CET) established by the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas.

However, it ruled that Trinidad and Tobago had not deliberately breached the RTC by allowing brown sugar from Guatemala and Honduras to enter its market without payment of the CET.

Belize had filed suit on its own behalf and that of Belize Sugar Industries Limited (BSI) and the case was heard last year. Belize and St Kitts and Nevis settled a similar suit before the trial.

Belize was represented by Senior Counsel Andrew Marshalleck and Samantha Matute and Trinidad and Tobago by Terrence Bharath.
