Godwin Hulse Weighs the Territorial Dispute Resolutions

Godwin Hulse

And while the Leader of Government Business introduced the bill in the upper house, he was among the last to take the floor in the debate.  Senator Godwin Hulse echoed concerns raised by Senator Courtenay in respect of litigation risk.  While he asked for answers, Hulse also noted that Belize would be stronger in taking a legal route than to engage Guatemala through any other means.


Godwin Hulse, Leader of Government Business

“There’s something that looms large, and I am the first to admit it, Senator Courtenay pointed out and I take ownership of that as well.  Risk.  That is why I took the opportunity back then to write to the luminaries and say, “tell me mi risk, tell me mi risk.”  And I have made several presentations across this nation and never shied from the risk because there is always a risk in anything. So how we try to mitigate this risk?  One, by trying to get the best possible advice, and we have done that.  Two, by being clear in our knowledge of what we are getting into.  We’ve done that and three, by weighing it.  We cyant talk no moh, because dehn noh di listen to we and when I read weh Senator Courtenay said, yoh wahn sih weh dehn seh today no di listen to we.  Orellana was just hardheaded, all di rest ah dehn before and after seem to be hardheaded.  We weigh the risk if we have to duke it out man, and da one deh wih done know, noh even bother with that because da one deh could be serious for all of us, all the consequences.  But the risk of going to court is an arena where we can go to battle and do it better than they can.”
