Private Flight Landed in Belize for Fishing Tournament

Dean Barrow

While that private jet clearly did not land in Belize, there are reports of a private flight into Belize.  According to reports, the private flight carried the family of a well-known Belizean businessman with ties to San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. Prime Minister Dean Barrow was asked for comment, but did not elaborate.

 

Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“I don’t know of any private flight coming in for the fishing tournament. I said with these things I would expect that Judith would be one of the persons in the know, in the loop and she as well—you’ve just heard me ask her—she as well knows of no such flight. So not to our knowledge, sir.”

 

Duane Moody

“In terms of the event that was happening out in San Pedro at the Grand Caribe, at the fishing tournament. We have confirmed that several public officers including the Attorney General attended one of the events there and there are photos showing that there were no social distancing, masks, quarantine laws were not enforced. Is this of a concern for you, sir?”

 

Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“If it were true, but my understanding is that the Attorney General may have been on the island at the same time the fishing tournament was taking place, but that he did not attend or participate in the fishing tournament.”
