BELPO says STOP US Capital Energy activity

A license to US Capital Energy for seismic testing in southern Belize is coming under sustained fire.  Earlier today, the Belize Institute of Environmental Law and Policy, BELPO, said it supports SATIIM’s position of last week calling for a moratorium on drilling by US Capital Energy in the Sartsoon-Temash National Park.  BELPO says it is against seismic testing, oil exploration or drilling in protected areas. BELPO is also asking government to stop the secrecy and corruption and to be transparent by providing copies of the permits which were granted to US Capital Energy. It is also calling for the cancelation of all the “illegitimate oil contracts.” Above all, BELPO says the government must respect the rights of the people, follow the law and stop US Capital Energy activities immediately.
