  1. I Belize it says:

    Govt of Belize does as it pleases, rule of law is a fig leaf.

  2. subKonshus says:

    They can this grant under one condition; That Belizean familes be also compensated when a bread winner is killed by law enforcement authorities during illegal activities.

  3. Al says:

    Are you serious, why is this even up for discussion. If they had their a$$$ at home in Guatemala where they belong they would not have been killed or get killed in the future. How is paying them any different from Barrow paying the gangs.
    It is time for Belize government be known for playing hard ball and stop the slow pitch soft ball they have been engaged in for so long. Send a freaking message, come over here on foot get sent home on your back. I am so sorry to sound so hard and cold, but evil has to be met with evil.

  4. William Freda says:

    The Government of Belize should not pay.Paying these families is basically saying that you have done wrong and that you are guilty. We should follow the lead of most countries that have these same issues.

  5. bzean says:

    what happens to the families of those belizeans killed on the guatelmala side, nobody is saying anything about that though or guatemala not giving a %##^& about that but they expect belize a much smaller country to be paying them off. lone #%^&* if u ask me.

  6. charles rublee says:

    Of course not. They are here illegally. Why in the world would belize give them money.

  7. bzd2dbone says:

    Heck No! By paying them we would be inviting them to come in and rape our national reserves.

  8. Nimbo says:

    What about our Belizeans killed over there? We do not hear our Govnt seeking to even find out what went on much less our AG going over there and demanding answers. No- this has never happened- just another dog dead. I guess since our AG has more murders in his constituency we have to shut up and put up.

  9. Aphro says:

    No. That’s an incentive to keep the Guate coming. It’s like free insurance to the families. Go rape Belize. If you dont get caught we could sing. If you get caught, we’ll still make a claim that has been pre-approved by GOB and collect $.

  10. Storm says:

    Millions for defense, but not one shilling for appeasement. Appeasement is the first step to a slow death for the appeaser.

    We have to be realistic and assume that we will always have a hostile neighbor on our western border, at least until there is a huge change or revolution over there.

    We need to harden our borders, train and arm the villagers to patrol them. Use tribute money for that.

    We need to strengthen our relationship with the Brits and maybe the US to guarantee our border and sovereignty.

    If we have excess public funds to send to Guatemala, let’s send it to opposition and pacifist groups there, so they can work on reforming our neighbor from the inside.

    GOB practice of paying a penny of compassionate grants to dead invaders is insane and so are the fools who developed it.

  11. Belizean says:

    This is outright disrespect for our own military. The message this brings across that our military should not defend our country and from now and just let themselves be slaughtered like a sitting duck! What happened to the conscience of our leaders? What happened to the word ” PATRIOTIC” ?

  12. MyMy says:

    Seam’s like commen sent’s , no longer is commen .
    We don’t need to pay them, to have them buy our country.
    They would be happy to get Belize for free, or few Qz.

  13. roska says:

    Storm….. you are soooo naive….. READ ……

    The US had agreed to support Guatemala’s claim on Belize in return for Guatemala to allow the US (CIA) train Cuban exiles in Guatemala for the failed Bay of Pigs invasion that was supposed to topple Fidel’s rule in Cuba in the 60′s….


    Now you want them to help us guard our border with them???? haha…

  14. Soh Jah Seh says:

    GOB should not pay a dime for illegal activities to no who. Should you start that it will become a trend for all. We have many with in our own community that does the same at a lesser cost to the country of Belize who endup in jail or dead. We Belizeans can’t go across the boarder and commit such crimes against the Guatemalans and come out alive. The wicked does not like it when the evil is against them.


  15. Corogirl says:

    Hell no!! If that is done all we are doing is showing that we are weak as a country and that guatemala can just come and walk all over us many of them come and are citizens here is that not enough!! And Belizeans most definitely have more rights to be compensated than them also how about student from Belize that are robbed when studying in their country nothing is said or done about this. Belize fought for independence for what? To be inferior to every other country that wants to walk all over us? Enough is enough we need to claim OUR country back!!

  16. cdb says:

    Guatemalans doesn’t deserve anything from Belize, especially when they are doing wrong or has entered the country illegally. They don’t even deserve a grain of sand from Belize, when they leave our country they should shake their feet off. Furthermore, the ICJ has nothing to decide about Belize concerning Guat. claims about our land, thank you very much. God bless Belize.
