G.O.B. Revokes Controversial Sarstoon Law!

There’s a lot of news tonight revolving out of Belize/Guatemala talks and the Sarstoon – perhaps the most sensational being that G.O.B. has revoked the Sarstoon Prohibition S.I., that piece of legislation which made it illegal for Belizeans to go into the Sarstoon. According to a release from the press office, quote, Government’s decision comes as a consequence of the agreement reached in Turkey between Belize and Guatemala regarding the Sarstoon, end quote. That obviously significant agreement, continues the release, is a commitment by both sides to work on a formal cooperation mechanism but until that is concluded, “the two sides have informally accepted a situation in which there will be untrammeled traffic for Belize’s military and civilians along the Sarstoon.”
