Cabinet Takes a Definitive Yes to the I.C.J.

Ahead of an anticipated announcement by the People’s United Party on the I.C.J, cabinet re-affirmed its YES vote for the April tenth Referendum. As far as we know, the United Democratic Party has not taken a position but a release from G.O.B. maintained its May 2018 cabinet position of a YES vote. Cabinet moved away from a conscious vote saying that all members are now fully convinced that Belize needs to take this matter to the I.C.J. and put an end to this unfounded claim once and for all.  The release further states that “After decades of failed attempts to end the claim using other options, Cabinet is convinced that given Belize’s legal certitude of having title to all its territory and confident that Belize can comprehensively prove this at the independent and impartial I.C.J.” Cabinet also urges all Belizeans to become informed on why this is the best option for Belize to move forward in its national development, free of the burden and costs of Guatemala’s groundless claim.
