By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: John Bejerano and his family are concerned after receiving an eviction order from the Belize Defence Force.

According to 7News Belize, on Friday, April 5, 2024, BDF officers visited them and issued an eviction order giving them 30 days to vacate the land.

The BDF officers also had an enforcement notice from the Commissioner of Lands, Talbert Bracket.

Reports indicate that- that property is considered a national security risk due to narco trafficking in that area.

However, Bejerano and his family have been living and working on those 50 acres of land even from before Belize got Independence.

“The BDF went there and told us to withdraw from there to move you know in one time if not they will burn the house, the tatched house where you could see on the picture and they said we have to go. They went there with two big skiff full of soldiers with heavy weapons and searched the area and say we need to move and they gave us the letter,” Bejerano explained.

“I am complaining about it you know because we’ve been there a long time my father from George Price time, before Belize became independence. That is where I was born and grew up at Sarstoon at the farm. So I don’t know why we have to move. If that is the case, if we have to get two lawyers we will get, because we could find the money to fight for our rights,” he added.

Bejerano says that he has spoken to the Alcaldes from Graham Creek and Machakila and they are prepared to welcome the family.

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Ministry of National Defence and Border Security is yet to provide a statement on this matter.
