Wil Maheia Lashes out at O.A.S.

Wil Maheia

The Organization of American States has issued a release on the fatal shooting of Guatemalan minor Julio Rene Alvarado, in the Chiquibul on Wednesday. The release states that,  “the O.A.S. General Secretariat repudiates the death of a Guatemalan minor at the hands of a Belizean patrol and urges both sides to redouble efforts to establish a lasting peace.” The wording won’t endear the O.A.S. to its critics in Belize, since that organization is allocating blame even before an investigation, which it says it will conduct. Additionally, the O.A.S. was silent when Danny Conorquie was shot at Caracol and when Staff Sergeant Richard Lambey was shot on Holy Saturday by Guatemalans. Wil Maheia is one of those critics and lashed out at the allegedly impartial organization today.


Wil Maheia, Head, Belize Territorial Volunteers

“I have said this before…I don’t think that the O.A.S. is on our side. I hear that Minister Elrington talked about the importance of the O.A.S., I don’t think that they are important for Belize. When they shot Danny Conorquie, when they shot the Belize Defense Force sergeant, the O.A.S. did not jump and condemn it. Why is it that O.A.S. is so one-sided that we continue to appease the O.A.S. and Guatemala? I believe, as Belizeans, we need to stand up and we need to demand more from our government, we need to demand more from the Minister of Foreign Affairs and we need to demand more from our Prime Minister. We need to stand in solidarity with our military; we need to stand in solidarity with the coastguard and the B.D.F. because they are out there defending this territory.”

    Belize is a member of the OAS. Wil needs to stop provoking the Guatemalans. His actions will lead to more injury and more deaths…Stop you foolishness Wil…
    Recall that “Matters of sovereignty are determined by governments and treaties, rather than by inhabitants anb battles.” (D.A.G. Waddell in British Honduras page 27)

  2. CEO says:

    “Wil needs to stop provoking the Guatemalans”; this is such an ignorant statement. Wil said a few truths that’s all! I wish more in the GOB would have more to say along these lines!

  3. Marie says:

    Why should you be afraid to voice your opinion which is true. This is why Guatemala has a piece of land and more reason why they should have the country.

    Please.. Wil Maheia is one of the few people that truly care about Belize while the rest of Belize panders to their international masters. The OAS, the US not even England has ever been on Belize’s side…. If Belizeans would only start to research and educate themselves…
