Friends of Conservation Advises G.O.B. to Crack Down on Incursions

According to Manzanero, all the entities that are regularly on the ground have gotten the wake-up call a long time ago, and the murder of Danny Conorquie is their worst fears realized. With the murder of the Special Constable, the new fear is that the killing will escalate if the government decides to waffle on the matter. Manzanero told News Five that government must get serious where border encroachments are concerned.

“From all the reports it was a cold blooded murder and I think it shows the level of aggression that people can impose upon Belize. It has happened before on wildlife and trees, and it is still continuing on right now as we speak…you know the illegal logging, so there is no way for us to take this lightly. We have been saying this…it goes to a next level of aggression now I think. If we can just learn now from this and be able to put the components that we have been saying for quite some time…I fear that this is just a beginning to demonstrate that if we are not serious, practically they can get rid of life, and Belize is almost non-respondent on how to deal with this, so I would hope that we can demonstrate that we also have the veracity to deal with such matters. But that is left to the government machinery. It is not only one sector of government. I think we need to look at the general machinery of government and what we need to do and of course from the private sector and the population at large. We are really dealing with a front now that we need to be much more serious and disciplined in dealing with this.”
