Prime Minister Says Allegation by Protesters is Nonsense

Dean Barrow

Barrow says any claim that his government has ceded any part of Belizean territory is nonsense. The PM says that if Belize’s military and government responds in the way in which they are being pushed, it will inevitably lead to bloodshed.

 

Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“We know these people have a claim; we know that claim is in a sense almost bizarre in terms of saying that the entire Sarstoon belongs to them. We completely reject that. We will continue to maintain our sovereignty assertions, but we insist that that particular exercise ought to be the function of the security forces and that civilians getting involved in what is I understand a commendable feat of patriotism and determination to fly the Belizean flag literally and metaphorically, we say that no man. In a very complicated, difficult situation, leave it to the professional to try to preserve and safeguard Belizean sovereignty. Don’t do what you’re doing, which if we respond the way you want us to; we are saying to Mister Maheia and the others will inevitably result in some kind of shooting incident in which the civilians will no doubt be caught in a crossfire. So we are perfectly satisfied that we are handling it the best way it ought to be handled in the circumstances. And to the extent that Mister Maheia want to continue to berate us; that’s fine.”

    this BS with Guatemala not just starting yesterday this had been an ongoing issue for years and nothing, absolutely nothing is been done about it. PM there saying about they trying the best they can to c what can be done ha!. They dont have time to look into anything because they busy filling their pockets with the ppl’s money and traveling abroad.

    Him looking out for the ppl of Toledo?? nope!! definately does not have time for that because it is not affecting him or his family at all so he dont have to even think about Toledo. Especially when the ppl of Toledo spoke up on election day Toledo have nothing to receive from this government anytime soon.

    Incompetent *ss Elrington needs to get is *ss down to Sarstoon and check out stats for himself instead of traveling to Guatemala and staying in luxurious hotels and requesting top class treatment there like he some type of king… king of the zoo yes nothing more than that.
    and its unfortunate how ppl in his division voted him back in his seat but then again ppl in his division are not the ones been affected by any of these and a $100 during election is enough for them.

    The only reason they would consider Toledo is to execute like in the case of Myles. Don’t know y ppl from south didnt just got rid of him all together and it would den be worth going to jail for and getting charge for.
