Guat Military Trail Belize Expedition in Belizean Territory

This morning, shortly after passing through the Sarstoon Island area, the Guatemalan Armed Forces trailed the Belizean boat for some ten minutes. While the boat remained within Belize territory, as many as five military personnel from the GAF continued to trail the media. Their pursuit started slowly and after a while they picked up speed to catch up with the media. And once directly across from them, one of Guatemalan soldiers recorded the media by phone.  While there was no exchange of words and they remained at a distance, BTV’s Wil Maheia said that the GAF’s movement within Belizean waters is a bold one.

“When we came in to the River there didn’t seem to be any action and within a few minutes of coming up the river, the Guatemalan military brazenly put their boat in the river and showed us that they can bully us in the fact that they came into Belizean waters, they come on the north side of the Sarstoon Island which is clearly in Belizean waters and I hope that the government will do something to protest to the Guatemalan Government that look that is not right. You just can’t come into our territory with your armed forces which is totally wrong and I hope that the Prime Minister, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the C.E.O. in Ministry of National Security do something about it. You all had all the cameras there, you saw the GAF coming over into the Belize side and had no regard for the Belize military, no respect at all. They just can’t be there and come into this side. So, something needs to be done about it.”
