Jimmy Morales gives Belize (and the PM) another tongue lashing. Let's hope Baroness Scotland can rally the Commonwealth to intercede on our behalf. We desperately need allies.

The Government of the Republic of Guatemala regrets and denounces the unfortunate declarations made by the Prime Minister of Belize, Dean Barrow, at a press conference yesterday.

The Government of the Republic categorically states that Prime Minister Barrow is trying to justify through social media and to the international community this inexcusable act of violence perpetrated by the BDF against the minor child Julio Rene, barely 13 years of age, who because of the irresponsibility and lack of professionalism (of the BDF) lost his life as a result of being shot eight times. The shots are proven to have come from a high powered rifle used exclusively by the military. Four of the bullets entered the child's back after he was already dead, while other shots hit the bodies of the child's father and his brother.

It is inconceivable, that now that the deeds have come to light, that Belize will proclaim that the comments made by the Guatemalan President, who simply reacted to the inhumane killing of a Guatemalan child, are more serious than the disproportionate acts of the cowardly BDF who violated (the child's) human rights.

It was these inexcusable, unjustifiable and disastrous actions by him, and the elements of the BDF, that instigated the Guatemalan response.

Belize appears to forget, or wants the world to forget that its military killed a Guatemalan child and wounded his brother and his father.

The Guatemalan government has requested that an ad-hoc committee from the OAS perform an investigation, and that the persons responsible for the crime committed against this child, Julio Alvarado Ruano be brought to justice, at the same time, I'd like to express my gratitude to the Secretary General of the OAS for having accepted the request.

The Government of Guatemala shall use every power to ensure justice in this case, and to prevent actions like those of today which we also regret.Yesterday, May 3rd, a meeting between the "Cancilleres" (???) of both countries, in which this topic, along with other topics relating to bi-lateral relations, was broached, took place in a positive light, This is not reflected in the statements made by PM Barrow.
