Forgive me for letting off a little steam here; however, from the way I've been treated by the Government of Belize and its officials, I believe I've earned this right.
I came to Belize after purchasing a parcel of property near Belmopan on 1 August 2008 and brought with me a 30' motor home and a Chevrolet truck. I resided in the motor home and used the pickup for my transportation and work vehicle. They were both insured in Belize. When entering the country, I paid the required Import Deposit of more than $6,000.00 US dollars and was advised when the vehicles departed the country this deposit would be returned. One week prior to my having to depart Belize to return to the US for urgent medical care, the motor home burned to the ground, so to speak. The Belmopan Police Department under the direction of Superintendent Guzman, along with fire officials invstigated this fire. I told them I must leave several days before the day I had to go. After I leave, I find that they suddenly decided the fire to my motor home was 'Arson' and decided that I should be arrested and charged with a crime. Well, to make a long story shorter, I am in the United States, the Belmopan Police went to my property and took all of my personal property which was stored in my house there. They said they found some that was listed as burned so I must have committed a crime. Well, I had duplicate property of several things so this was foolish of them. I believe they only wanted to steal these items for their own personal use. This Superintendent Guzman refuses to answer my e-mails, telephone calls and regular mails. The Belize Government refused to refund my Deposited $6,000.00. So, I highly advise any and all persons wanting to go to Belize with personal property not to do it because the officials there will find some means to steal it. This government refuses to communicate with anybody unless you are knocking personally on their desktop. You will be cheated.
