Will BGYEA members plant di corn?

Nigel Petillo

While the executive of BGYEA is preparing to go back to its membership with good news, President Nigel Petillo was quite circumspect, avoiding the most pertinent question in the wake of the Supreme Court decision, to plant or not to plant the corn.

“We’re glad that the court system worked out for us.  I believe Ms. Audrey has spoken to most of the matters and today we’re just excited.  We want to take the opportunity to go back home now and meet with our members and proceed from there as far as Harmonyville.”

“Now the question on the minds of Belizeans, do we proceed with planting the corn?”

“Our clients will regroup and we will determine our best course of action.  We’ve said that we will apply every process within the laws to make sure that they exercise their rights and that’s where it ends.”


It is unclear at this time whether government will appeal the ruling.
