European Union and Belize Sign Development Cooperation
Belize is one of four countries that the European Union has signed onto development cooperation. According to a release, the European Commissioner for Development, Andris Piebalgs signed the national indicative programs this past Friday that seeks to partner with Belize to assist in the policies and strategies in the areas of energy, health and public financial management. The national Indicative Programmes is a critical component when it comes to aid from the European Union. Back in 2013, it was agreed that development cooperation would be channelled to seventy eight African, Caribbean and Pacific countries through the eleventh European Development fund during the period, 2014 – 2020 which carries a sum of 30.5 billion Euros. Belize had prepared a document that defined the strategy and priorities for aid from the European Union which the National Indicative Programme seeks to address.
Security Guard Arraigned for Displaying Gang Membership
Twenty-five year old Vildo Spain, a security guard at Princess Hotel and Casino, was fined five hundred dollars today by Magistrate Herbert Panton after he pled guilty to displaying gang membership. Spain was given until December 15 to pay. If he defaults on payment he will serve six months. The incident occurred around 6:10 p.m. yesterday. The police were on mobile patrol on Complex Avenue when they saw Spain who they said appeared suspicious. They informed Spain that a search would be conducted on his person and when they executed the search they did not find anything incriminating. However, one of the officers saw a tattoo on his left arm which had “30’s”, a symbol that he was a member of the Crips gang. As a result, Spain was arrested and charged.
John Baptist Spared of Minimum Sentence for Attempted Burglary
Twenty-eight year old John Baptist, who was found guilty of attempted burglary today by the Chief Magistrate, Anne Marie Smith, was spared the minimum sentence of 7 years. Because it was his first conviction, Chief Magistrate Smith invoked a proviso and sentenced Baptist to six months. She told Baptist that it was his lucky day. She also found Baptist guilty of going equipped and she fined him five hundred dollars. If he defaults on payment he will serve six months. She dismissed a third charge of damage to property because there was not enough evidence to prove it.
Town Council Looks at Dog Sterilization
For years the conventional way of controlling the population of stray dogs and cats has been eradicating them through poisoning. Though this procedure has been defended by authorities and vets that it’s not as cruel as it seems recently a number of local animal rights defenders have come to these innocent creatures’ aid requesting for alternatives measures to be explored in order to address the socio-health problem. It is with this objective that the Orange Walk Town Council has partnered with CAATS to carry out a first of its kind public and free of cost dog spaying and neutering. Deputy Mayor of Orange Walk Ian Cal says the activity is one that aims at helping pet owners and at the same time controlling the stray dog and cat population.
“We have a lot of people that are against dog eradication including myself. It is something we do not like to condone but it is an avenue that the council used to take for many years and I think it is about time that we start to look at other avenues.
Ted Cox Launches His Memoirs of a Younger Belize
The book entitled, “When British Honduras Became Belize, 1971-1973, A Peace Corps Memoir” was officially launched today during a ceremony at the Leo Bradley Library in Belize City. With the support of the National Institute of Culture and History and the Belize National Library Service and Information System, author, Ted Cox, shared that the book looks at both Belizean History during the 1970s and sports at that time.
TED COXTed Cox book
“Years ago when I was in Belize I just liked taking pictures, I had a dark room, so I had taken hundreds of pictures and they were pretty much just put in a scrap book. Also at the time I kept logs of my work and letters home; my mom saved those letters; so, I got them back and all of this stuff was just sitting and I knew about four years ago if I didn’t do something with it in another 10 to 15 years I would be too old to really deal with it and it would be lost.
British Empire Awards Bestowed on Five Belizeans
Five Belizeans were honoured today for their dedicated and outstanding services to their community. Governor General of Belize Sir Colville Young presented the fiver honorees with insignias. Receiving the insignia for Commander of the British Empire Award was Dr. Ellsworth Grant, for his contribution to Medicine. Patrick Andrews and Stephen Duncan received the insignia as Members of the British Empire for their contribution to Community and Banking. Crystal Vernon received the insignia as Member of the British Empire for her contributions to Community Service; and Francisco Woods received the insignia as Member of the British Empire for his contributions to Community and Business. The presentation took place at the Belize House in Belmopan.
Speaking of Ebola, the reports coming out of the United States are causing panic in that country and understandably, concern in Belize.
The Ebola patient who died in a Dallas hospital had infected two health workers, and reports are that the latest patient was on an airline with over 100 persons just the day before she tested positive for the deadly disease.
Ebola is a highly infectious disease that is transmitted through contact with infected persons. The Ebola virus causes high fever and bleeding inside and outside the body. As the virus spreads through the body, it damages the immune system and organs. Ultimately, it causes levels of blood-clotting cells to drop which leads to severe, uncontrollable bleeding. The disease, also known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever or Ebola virus, kills up to 90% of people who are infected.
First-time offender spared over burglary charge
He could have faced as much as seven years in prison at minimum for attempted burglary, but on Wednesday Chief Magistrate Ann-Marie Smith handed down a comparatively lighter sentence to 28 year old John Baptist, after convicting him of attempted burglary and going equipped for crime, his first offences.
John Baptist will serve six months imprisonment on the burglary charge, and a further six months if he defaults on payment of a $500 fine on the going equipped charge. A charge of damage to property was dismissed for lack of proof.
John Baptist is accused of breaking into the home of Ladyville high school teacher Esther McCord, around 7:15 in the morning of February 26, 2014, at Mile 11 on the Old Northern Road.
Security guard pleaded guilty to gang membership
A security guard for the largest hotel in Belize is in hot water, after pleading guilty to displaying signs of membership in a gang.
25 year old Vildo Spain, who works for Ramada Princess Belize City Hotel, was found acting suspiciously by police on mobile patrol on Complex Avenue around 6:10 p.m. Tuesday evening. Mr Spain was stopped and searched, and while there was nothing incriminating found on him, one of the officers noticed a tattoo on his left arm reading “30′s”, symbol for the Crips gang. Vildo Spain was arrested and charged, but instead of sending him directly to jail, Magistrate Herbert Panton issued a fine of $500, which must be paid by December 15, in default six months in prison.
Admiral Borland says new system will secure inter-agency communications
The issue of National Security has been brought into sharper focus of late, and the United States is donating communication mechanisms to the Ministry of National Security, to enable a more efficient means of communication between the different arms of the Ministry. It is a widely debated and controversial topic of whether the United States of America is indeed eavesdropping on their allies, including Belize.
On Tuesday we raised the matter to Commandant of the Belize Coast Guard, who told us the main focus of this project is to make communication between the different security agencies of Belize safer from unwanted eavesdroppers, and not the other way around.
Admiral John Borland – BCG Commandant
“Each branch of the military, meaning the BDF and the Coast Guard, and the law enforcement, meaning the police, and other agencies that work with us, are utilising different communication systems. So there is hardly any compatibility.
The idea here is to bring us on one mainstream communications system, that will enable us to talk to each other, in common talk groups, to be able to talk on a needs basis among the security forces, and not share information that is not needed to be shared.
18 year old raped by two men in Ladyville
An 18-year-old student of Belize City reported that on Saturday October 11th, at about 11:00p.m., she was invited by two men to a party in Ladyville, to which she agreed.
They arrived at the house of one of the men, which is located in Ladyville, where they started drinking alcoholic beverages.
She stated she got intoxicated and the man took her into his bedroom to lie down, and she passed out.
A few minutes later she woke up and realized that the man was having sex with her against her will. Then the other man reportedly also had sex with her against her will.
6 year old dies in Spanish Lookout accident
A 6 year old drowned in Spanish Lookout on Monday October 13. 35-year-old Walter Penner of Spanish Lookout reported that around 4:00 p.m., he and his four sons including 6-year-old Elam Penner, left his home driving a toe-head to deliver corn in Spanish Lookout.
He stated that he parked the trailer on top of the pit and went outside to open the holes that the trailer has underneath. He further stated that he went and unloaded the corn, and when he had already opened seven holes and went to open another hole, he heard a cry and noticed his 6-year-old son had fallen into the pit.
He shouted for help, where a man came and assisted him and took out his son from inside the pit, and took him to the Belmopan Hospital.
Unitedville family loses everything in House Fire
A family in Unitedville has lost their entire home and all its content to a fire.
The incident occurred after midnight on Friday October 10.
Suzan and Michael Flowers are the home owners, and they lived at the home with their four children .
Suzanne says the family was asleep in the two bedroom home when at about 11:30 that night, she got up and made checks on the home. All was well and she went back to bed but about half hour later, she woke up abruptly.
Susan Flowers – Fire Victim
“I got up. I walked around in the kitchen. I went to drink some water, played with my phone, send some credits to my husband phone and to my mam and my brother and my dad.
I went in my room. I took my phone with me and I was listening to some music on the headphone. This was like probably 11:30. I fell asleep about a quarter to twelve. I checked on the boys. I do that. Every time I wake up, I will go and check in their room.
Police charge minor for Belize City murder
Belize City Police say they have charged a 16 year old male minor of Victoria Street, Belize City, for the weekend murder of 33 year old Salvadoran national, Jose Luis Umana, of a Cards Alley address.
On Saturday night, October 11, according to Police, Jose Umana was found with a gunshot wound to the center of the forehead at the corner of New Road and Hydes Lane, after they received reports of shots fired in the area around 8:58 p.m.
Jose Umana died at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital while in treatment just under an hour later.
On Tuesday, Press Officer Raphael Martinez told reporters that investigations continue into the possible motive for the incident.
Read Admiral John Borland presents plan for Forward Operating Bases
14 projects for the Belize Coast Guard, including 9 Forward Operating Bases, are slated for completion before the year 2019. Two of those, the Calabash Caye FOB and the San Pedro FOB have since been completed.
It must be noted that the Calabash Caye base was built by a Belizean contractor in 2009; on the other hand, in 2013 BINARQ, the same Guatemalan company contracted to build the base at Hunting Caye, built the base in San Pedro. But unlike the San Pedro Forward Operating Base where Belizean labourers were being employed, the one at Hunting Caye was being built exclusively by Guatemalans.
This has become sore point for Belizeans, especially after the death of Special Constable Danny Conorquie at the hands of Gautemalan Citizens.
GSU Commander responds to brutality allegations
While briefing the press on Tuesday morning, the GSU Commander, Inspector Mark Flowers, spoke out for the first time about several allegations of police brutality in which his name has been called. While they are being investigated by initially the Professional Standards Branch of the Department and eventually the Security Services Commission if approved, Inspector Flowers was intent on clearing his good name and going after his accusers.
He specifically accuses Channel 7 of running a campaign to defame his character, a charge the television station denies.
According to Inspector Flowers, Allan McKoy, who has alleged a brutal assault at the hands of the GSU after being accused of knocking down officer Dejohn Cayetano, has told the Ombudsman’s office that he was not menaced by Inspector Flowers as he originally claimed in press interviews. He offered as proof a statement Allan McKoy gave to that office.
Guatemala and Belize address security concerns
The Belize-Guatemala Joint Commission met on Friday 10 October in Guatemala City, to discuss security concerns, including the recent incidents in the Caracol Archeological Reserve.
According to a press release from GOB, the commission reached 12 conclusions aimed at improving their effectiveness at combating illegal activities and transnational crime.
Each Belizean security agency had an opportunity to meet directly with their Guatemalan counterparts, and agreed on a way forward for direct collaboration in respect of all security concerns, including coordinated operations among security agencies to combat the illegal activities in Belize’s territory.

Belize: National Holidays That Need Re-engineering
Belize celebrates Pan American Day on October 12 and Labor Day on May 1 each year….as national public and bank holidays.
These holidays seem to have lost their purpose in the psyche of the Belizean people….with the holiday having become just another day off from work….serving no social, cultural or economic purpose of value to the nation.
Holidays should bring our people closer together for a national constructive purpose….to promote unity. In keeping with the Pan American theme….we should construct a day that celebrates our diversity…in a healthy, competitive context….open opportunity for getting to know new people and different places….invite participation from bordering communities in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.
Make Some Noise San Pedro
I caught Angel Nunez on Reef Radio and TV (ch 20 in San Pedro) talking about potential negative events going on around our island during low season. He was urging people to raise their voices and make some noise if they see something not right, be it a robbery, an abusive situation or someone that needs help.
I was very inspired by what he said and pleased with the fact that we did just that in the San Pablo area. Recently, one of the bikes from our yard was found by Robert, the house caretaker, in the vacant lot on the other side of our fence. Barb, my downstairs neighbor, saw some people across the canal looking in our direction. As she looked out her window, she did not feel the guys were casing us, it seemed more like they were looking at something and we feel they might have been watching someone on the other side of our fence. We also think our friend Christian going back and forth between both our apartments likely startled the person trying to steal the bike. They were home free with the bike over the fence and in the vacant lot but, for some reason, took off fast. Our version of making some noise was to tell our neighbors and double check who the guys across the water were with Amy who lives at that house. Nothing ever got solved here, but at least the people around us are aware to be extra observant right now.
Finn Kardashian Does Central America, Episode 4: Nicaragua!

We left El Tunco, El Salvador at 3am on a shuttle. Now there is 1 Austrian, 1 Belgian, 2 Germans, 1 American and 1 Kardashian and 1 Belizean on this shuttle. Straight from the night club, I learnt my lesson the hard way. But what a better way to shuttle it up with a Jager buzz?
The Good News Keeps Coming For Belize
Enhanced air service, increased tourism arrivals, better infrastructure and continual improvement add up sunny days and a rosy future.
A recent Travel Pulse feature article agrees with our earlier post this week that Belize is on an upward trajectory. The article. “Belize is Booming And Has The Numbers To Prove It” (October 14, 2014 ) cites the same BTB tourist arrival figures we quoted, as well as Caribbean Tourism Organization statistics to highlight their view that, yes, Belize is booming.
Who would have thought, just over 30 years ago when Belize achieved independence and had an economy dependent on agriculture that the little country would become one of the world’s premier travel destinations while remaining so strongly committed towards environmental sustainability and responsible travel?
Activists use GPS to track illegal loggers in Brazil's Amazon rainforest
Hi-tech undercover operation used GPS tracking on timber trucks for the first time, as well as satellite and aerial images to reveal extent of illegal logging in Brazilian Amazon. Covert GPS surveillance of timber trucks by Amazon campaigners has revealed how loggers are defeating attempts to halt deforestation in the world’s greatest rainforest. Raids by law enforcement officers are expected early on Wednesday morning, acting on the evidence handed to them by Greenpeace Brazil.
The activists went undercover in the remote and dangerous state of Pará to secretly place GPS tracking devices on trucks suspected of illegal logging, the first time the tactic has been used. It revealed 200-mile-long journeys deep into protected regions of rainforest to collect logs and return journeys under the cover of night to sawmills in the Amazon port of Santarém, from where timber is exported to Europe, the US, China, and Japan. Satellite and aerial images were also collected and analysed during the hi-tech operation.
Our Mayan Heritage
Belize was known to be occupied by the ancient Mayas as evidenced by the Mayan temples across the country and the RBCMA is no exception. Over 60 substantial Mayan sites have been located within the Rio Bravo Conservation Management Area (RCBMA)
The La Milpa site, located in western Rio Bravo, is the third largest site in Belize and its ceremonial center was expanded to its full extent as one of the major sites of the Maya Lowlands. This site gained international attention when it was featured in the National Geographic magazine – the burial of a King (a Royal Tomb) was discovered in front of the main temple, a unique discovery in Mayan archaeology excavation.
The University of Texas does archaeological surveys on all sites on the RBCMA. Through such work we expect to learn much more about ancient Mayan civilization.
Come take a walk through ancient Mayan Civilization by visiting the unexcavated ruins of La Milpa.

Illegal Fisheries: Green Cards for Five Countries, Red Card for Sri Lanka
In its fight against illegal fishing activities worldwide, the European Commission has proposed to ban imports of fisheries products from Sri Lanka to tackle the commercial benefits stemming from illegal fishing.
The move comes after four years of intense dialogue with the country after which it could not demonstrate that it sufficiently addressed illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing.
In contrast, the Commission confirmed that Belize, Fiji, Panama, Togo and Vanuatu, which had received warnings at the same time as Sri Lanka, have successfully taken measures to tackle illegal fishing. Consequently, the Commission proposes to lift the trade measures imposed in March this year against Belize.
European Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Maria Damanaki, said: "Our policy of resolute cooperation is yielding results. Five countries receive today our appreciation for getting serious on illegal fishing. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for Sri Lanka. I hope that the message we are sending today will be a wake-up call for this country."
Where to see big cats in the wild
There is no creature more thrilling to see in the wild than a big cat. Richard Madden speaks to five leading wildlife experts to find out what makes the lion, tiger, cheetah, leopard and jaguar so compelling to watch – and where best to see them. Jaguars
By Alan Rabinowitz, head of Panthera, which campaigns for endangered big cats. He set up a jaguar sanctuary in Belize.
The jaguar is the ‘Tiger of the Americas’ and the third-largest of the big cats. Even though it’s a fearsome killing machine, I call the jaguar the ‘reluctant warrior’ of the cat family because it’s the least aggressive. Lions, tigers and leopards have been responsible for thousands of human deaths, but jaguars never attack humans. In some communities in South America people live alongside 500lb jaguars; no one is frightened of them.
They can survive in numerous different habitats from the Sonoran Desert in Mexico to the pampas of northern Argentina, but they thrive best in wet jungle and rainforest and have an affinity for water. The Pantanal in Brazil during the latter half of the dry season (August to October) is the one place where you are almost guaranteed a sighting. The fishermen on the Cuiabá River don’t hunt them and when you are watching them from a boat, they don’t run away. Then, at night, you can follow them with a spotlight and even see them hunting. And that’s an incredible sight.
Where to stay: Pousada do Rio Mutum, an eco-lodge, or the simpler Porto Jofre, where guests almost always see jaguar.
Common Fisheries Policy for Caribbean approved as final policy
The Council for Trade and Economic Development (COTED), comprised of Ministers responsible for Agriculture from across the Caribbean Community, has confirmed the Caribbean Community Common Fisheries Policy as a final policy document for the Community.
The Caribbean Community Common Fisheries Policy (CCCFP) is aimed at fostering greater harmonisation across the Caribbean in the sustainable management and development of the region’s fisheries and aquaculture resources, with special emphasis on promoting the most efficient use of shared resources while aiming to improve food security and reduce poverty in the region.
The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) has said that CARICOM policies, once authorized by COTED, are binding on the countries. At its meeting held in Suriname last Friday, 10 October 2014, COTED gave its stamp of approval to the CCCFP and said that the newly authorized policy should be applied by Member States as far as possible. The formal signing of the CCCFP by member countries is expected to commence in the months ahead.
Video: Belize's Tony Wright: Let's Tek Back We Septemba!, 38min.
Belizean artist turned activist, Tony Wright has been resisting the musical and cultural invasion of Belizean music and culture since the early 1990's as a musical artist and talk show host on the popular KREM Radio in Belize City. Since the late 1980's, Belize began seeing a musical and cultural invasion from foreign artists both from the Caribbean and United States where its traditional musical art forms like Bruckdon and Punta Rock were beginning to be displaced by Caribbean musical art forms like reggae and Soca. With these art forms becoming prominent and accepted by the Belizean status quo first and then by the general Belizean population, Belizean traditional culture began also to be displaced by other Caribbean cultures like Carnival and Jamaican Gangster Rap. The infusion has taken a toll on Belizean social life in a negative way, robbing Belizean musical and cultural artists of income that they would have necessarily be able to acquire from national festivities and from the country's tourism. Since then, Wright has been the only artist that has been consistent in resisting musical and cultural assimilation and protecting the rights of the Belizean artist in Belize for equal rights and justice in Belize's musical and cultural market. In this exclusive behind the scene Part 1 of Belizean Legends feature, Wright discusses the issue in-depth with host Bilal Morris in September of 2012.
