Guatemala Customs & Immigration Deployed to Sarstoon

Government says it is cautiously optimistic about progress to solve the situation at the Sarstoon. But the Guatemalan military is not indicating any such optimism. Over the weekend, press reports say that the government beefed up its military vessels inside the Sarstoon River. According to a report in the Prensa Libre, customs and immigration officials have been deployed to stem incursions into “Guatemalan Territory.” A military boat by the name of ‘Metal Shark’ was flying its flag, patrolling the area. The boat was deployed because according to the reports, there were expected visits to the Sarstoon by Belizeans.

    This government is saying sarstoon river and island is for us bzean but yet we are banned from visiting our very territory but as seen in this picture Guatemalan army boat flying a guatemalan flag is seen patrolling our bzean waters claiming they are patrolling their territorial waters yet the government and bzean military stand there doing noting. this simply means the sarstoon river and island is not for bze anymore. this government and sedi elrington have given up our territorial waters and island to guatemala but yet keep lying to the bzean public that it is ours.. i guess our military commander have no patriotism and courage to stand for wat is ours hiding under the skirt of the government. we need some one like coast guard commander some one who is a true patriot and has the courage to stand up against wat is wrong and fight and defend wat is ours as bzean. i dont know how long this government is going to continue lying to us.
