The Belize Network Of NGOs Launches ICJ Online Survey
The Guatemalan Claim is a very touchy topic, to go to ICJ or not is a question many Belizeans still don’t know what to choose.

With this in mind the The Belize Network of NGOs (BNN) has launched a survey to collect data on the perspectives of Belizeans on Guatemala's claim to Belize. The survey will be administered by Aldair Gongora, a Belizean PhD Candidate at Boston University.

One of Belize’s great political leaders, Dean Lindo, has died
By Wellington C. Ramos Dean Russel Lindo, an attorney by profession, and the first leader of the United Democratic Party (UDP), died on September 17, 2018, at his home in Belize City. He was also a two-time elected representative from Fort George Division in Belize City, a minister of natural resources in the 1984 UDP Manuel Esquivel administration, a Belizean ambassador to the United States of America, UDP national campaign chairman and advisor to the party.

The Ministry of Investment, Trade and Commerce is embarking on a Consultancy titled "SUPPORT FOR EXPORT-LED DEVELOPMENT IN THE COROZAL DISTRICT WITH A FOCUS ON REPURPOSING THE FREE ZONE" through a Technical Cooperation (TC) with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).

The Corozal District has benefited from an estimated 3,800 jobs in the Corozal Free Zone. Free Zones were originally created with the objective to expand trade in goods and to attract foreign investment. The focus on this objective has changed over time and the Free Zones are no longer serving their original purpose. Free Zones operate under a high cash environment where the banking system, due to the de-risking concerns, is hesitant to offer services to existing free zone businesses.

How was southern Belize Colonized?
The Belize Archives just released this powerful document which shows how the Baymen treated our indigenous ancestors. "Until recently, Belizean historiography suggested that all of the Maya people living in (what is today known as) southern Belize were killed before the British arrived—and that the land remained essentially empty until the 1880s. - Joel Wainwright, Check out his talk here:

Father and Three Kids Perish in Fire Tragedy
Tonight, we have a packed newscast following the 3-day Independence Day weekend, but the story making headlines tonight is that a second family of 4 has died in a house fire in only 3 months. This one happened in Orange Walk Town early yesterday morning, when the Petillo family was resting after a night out. Alfredo Petillo and his 3 children, Kevawn Clarke, Jayda Petillo, and Mia Petillo, ages 10 to 14, became trapped in a blaze that destroyed their home, as well as those of their uncles. The family yard, located at the corner of Progress and Cinderella Street in the Town, had 4 homes built close together, where the 3 Petillo Brothers and their spouses and children lived. At the main building is where their parents lived, but yesterday's fire started in Alfredo Petillo's kitchen and quickly spread to his brothers' family home, destroying everything in its wake.

Fire Department Says Stove Was Left On
So, you've seen the immense pain and grief in the aftermath of this fire, but up until this afternoon, it was unclear what exactly started it. The senior command of the National Fire Service hosted a press conference this afternoon to explain in details what their findings show. They say someone just left a pot on the stove and forgot to turn it off: Ted Smith, Fire Chief, National Fire Service : "The fire started from the stove area." Reporter: "Was the stove left on?" Ted Smith: "It appears that something was being cooked on the stove, a sort of aluminum type material as it melted and flowed within the top of the stove. We do have pictures but we didn't get it on the computer. That reflected that. When that occurred, the gas tank that was near and the transparent tubing - once the fire started it quickly broke the transparent tubing."

Fire Dept Defends Itself Against Claims of Being Late and Unprepared
Of course, with all that pain comes rage, and members of the Petillo family are unhappy with the performance of the fire department. You'll know that the firefighters are often the first ones at whom the fingers are pointing. And, in this case, the grieving family say that the authorities response to this deadly fire was inadequate, with a lack of water, and lateness in arriving to the scene. Here are a few of their complaints: Saturinno Petillo - Brother/Uncle of the Deceased: "They ran out of water. They had to bring an extra truck and try to do their best. Everybody was trying to give a hand. But it was too late."

One Year Old Drowns In Vat
A 1 year old baby boy drowned in a vat this weekend. It happened in the Port Loyola Area of Belize City at Krooman Lagoon on Saturday night. Now the family says they have been getting a lot of hate messages on social media, calling them negligent. Well, the baby's father spoke to us off camera today to set the record straight. He says it was an accident and it happened so fast. The baby's mom didn't see when the baby slipped away. Here that story. Courtney Weatherburne reporting Today Alexie Sanchez and her family spent most of their day inside their Krooman Lagoon home - enfolded in bitterness and sorrow. Sanchez's baby boy Kelvin Sanchez drowned in this vat near their house. The tragedy happened on Saturday night around 6:00.

Police Contemplating Charges for Parents
We also asked the head of CIB about this child drowning case. They say they are looking at the possibility of negligence: ASP Alejandro Cowo, O.C., C.I.B., Belize City: "The family was having a reunion and the child was left in the house. They began to look for the child and the child was nowhere to be found. The mother went to her residence which is not far from where her mother lives and the child was not there. The father at the same time was coming out and he was looking outside if the yard when he saw inside of the vat the minor. They took him out and they rushed him to the hospital. However, he succumbed to his injuries whilst at the hospital." Reporter: "Any idea how the minor got into the vat?" ASP Alejandro Cowo: "What we believe is that the house is six feet elevated off the ground and the vat is about seven feet in height, so just about a foot difference in height of the house."

Man Found Murdered on San Pedro
There's been another murder on San Pedro - and like the many that have proceeded it, this one could be drug related. 23 year old fisherman Miguel Arroyo left home on the Tenth September at 2:00 pm to go to a nearby store. But, he never came home. His family started searching and found him dead yesterday - a good distance from home, with his head smashed in: ASP Alejandro Cowo- OC, CIB: "The family, as we know, they have been searching along with police in different locations within San Pedro. On that day they ventured across the lagoon and that is where they met up with the decomposed body..."

Man Drinks Poison, Urges Stepdaughter to Do Same
A 30 year old man drank the poisonous herbicide gramaxone - and then urged his 15 year old stepdaughter to do the same. It happened this morning in Bella vista Village in the Toledo District. Felistino Ash was with his stepdaughter - who had run away from home on Friday the 21st. She met up with him - and in an act of what can only be called madness, he got her to drink gramaxone with him. Reports say she put it in her mouth and waited until he had gulped down a large amount, to spit it out. The girl survived, while he died in the room. Police told us more:..

Young Mother Killed In Hit and Run
It was a rough holiday weekend on the highways - and out our next three stories about road traffic fatalities. We turn now to the north where a young mother was killed in a hit and run on Independence eve. 22 year old Caroline Riverol was walking across the road at the Santa Martha- Carmelita junction when she was run over by a truck that didn't stop. Police told us more: ACP Joseph Myvett- Head of National Crimes Investigation Branch: "Our investigation so far is that she probably was in the process of crossing the highway when she was knocked down by a truck which failed to stop..."

Family Says She Was Waiting on The Roadside
Our colleagues from CTV 3 News also spoke with Salazar's uncle, Juan Rodriguez. He said that from what the family's been able to establish, she was not crossing the road, but standing at the side of the highway, waiting to travel to Orange Walk town. She was going to meet up with her aunt to enjoy their regular Independence Eve outing together. They say that's when the truck hit her: Juan Rodriguez, Uncle of Deceased: "Everyone was getting ready to go to the September celebrations. It was 20th night - to see the fireworks. It's something that my wife and my niece normally goes out together and waited for the juuvey in Orange Walk that was in the morning at 4am. At that time my wife was getting ready to go and meet her. They were actually texting that they were going to meet - that the bus was coming and that she was going to take the bus and my wife was texting her back that they will at the town council. We got a call saying that she had died. I didn't believe it. But we got another call to confirm."

Man Sees Checkpoints, Jumps Off Moving Bus To Death
A man jumped off a moving bus - and ended up dead - all because it appears he wanted to avoid a police checkpoint. Police told us it happened on last week Thursday when the Santander employees' bus was on the Valley of Peace Road. Here's Assistant Commissioner Myvett with more:... ACP Jospeh Myvett- Head of National Crime Investigations Branch: "On the 20th of September, shortly after 3:30 pm, Belmopan police was conducting a vehicular checkpoint on the Valley of Peace road when a bus approached the checkpoint but shortly before the bus came to a stop a male Hispanic person jumped out of the moving bus through the backdoor. His name was later learnt to be Carlos Jimenez, a 24 years Honduran of a Young Bank address. He was taken to the Western Regional Hospital and later transferred to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he later succumbed to the injuries he received from the accident."

Bella Vista Traffic Fatality
And in a third traffic fatality to report tonight - there was another fatal hit and run accident - this one outside Bella Vista village. Police told us more:... ACP Joseph Myvett- Head of National Crime Investigations Branch: "Sometime around 6:31 pm, police officers from the intermediate southern formation were called to an area between miles 44 and 45 on the Southern Highway where they observed the motionless body of a Hispanic male person later identified to be Juan Pop, 62 years Guatemalan farmer of Bella Vista Village on the right hand side of the road...""

Cayo Man on Life Support After Shooting
A man from Santa Elena, Cayo is on life support after he was shot to the head. It happened on Saturday night after a fight between two groups. Trapp was in the middle of that fight - and later that night when he was at home cooling off, two masked men pulled up to kill him. Police told us more:.. ACP Joseph Myvett- Head of National Crimes Investigation Branch: "On the 21st of September sometime around 8:55 pm, police were called out to the hot-point area of Santa Elena town at a residence where they learnt that some six persons were socializing and during the process two persons road up on a motorcycle, one of whom got off the cycle and fired several shots towards the direction of where the persons were socializing and one of those shots caught Mr. Harvey Trapp to the left ear. As a result he was transported to the San Ignacio Community Hospital and later to the K.H.M.H. where he is now on a mechanical ventilator and he is in a critical condition."

Special Needs Man Shot
And, there was also a shooting in Belize City - fortunately this one wasn't very serious. But, the man who was injured was a blameless victim, actually a special needs individual. Police told us more:.. ASP Alejandro Cowo- OC, CIB, Belize City: "On Friday at about 8:35 pm police visited the Karl Huesner Memorial Hospital where they observed Mr. Leroy Waller, 37 years old Belizean of Neal's Pen Road, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to the left side of his neck. What police have gathered so far is that Mr. Waller was walking on Neal's Pen Road heading towards the boulevard when he was approached by someone who came from behind and fired several shots at him. This happened in front of 187 Neal Pen Road where a wake was taking place. Fortunately he was admitted and discharged on the same night. His injury was a minor one."

Family Homeless After Jane Usher Fire
A Curl Thompson street family lost everything in a fire. It happened early yesterday morning after 1:00 in the Jane Usher Area. Shantel Smith and her 14 year old brother were asleep inside the house when he alerted Smith to the fire. They ran out just in time, unharmed but they had to watch their home go up in flames. Today we spoke to a neighbor whose home was minimally damaged by the fire. Dorian Cardenes, Neighbor: "After 1 o' clock I woke up and I saw flames in the sky through the window and then have the neighbor called the fire department, but it took a little while but they came. They came late when the house already burnt down."

He Shot At Cops In City
Our next three stories are about acts of violence targeting police over the Independence Day weekend. We start in the city where a man known to the police is still wanted after he allegedly fired on two cops. ASP Cowo told us more:... ASP Alejandro Cowo- OC, CIB, Belize City: "On Saturday just before 5 in the morning, a police officer had just departed the Queen's street police station on board of an unmarked police vehicle, driven at the time by Inspector Caliz accompanied by Srgt. Maroquin and a BDF corporal that is attached to the ACT Operation. Whilst they were leaving the compound they drove into Barrack Road, into North Front Street and just approaching by Bottom Dolla, they were alerted that a guy was ahead of them with what appeared to be a firearm..."

Corporal’s Home Shot Up In San Joaquin
And while police are waiting for Longsworth - Hendy to turn himself in - they are still trying to confirm who shot up a policeman's house in San Joaquin, Corozal. It happened on the 20th night but wasn't discovered until the 21st.:... ACP Joseph Myvett- Head of National Crimes Investigation Branch: "On the 21st of September police received information sometime around 11:30 am from the common law wife of a police officer living in San Joaquin Village who reported to police that on the 20th of September, shortly after 10 pm, she heard several bangs but did not pay much attention to it as she thought it was fire-works. However on the 21st of September around 8 am, when she exited her home and went to the street side, she observed a number of expended shells on the street side..."

Racing Hilux Hit Cop At Checkpoint
And, in Cayo, a police constable was injured at a highway checkpoint, when an eastbound Toyota Hilux blazed past and hit him. It happened on Friday night near the Red Creek checkpoint near San Ignacio. Police told us more:... ACP Joseph Myvett- Head of National Crimes Investigation Branch: "Also on Friday, sometime shortly after 7pm, a team of police officers were conducting vehicular check point at the Red Creek checkpoint in Santa Elena. Whilst on the checkpoint, a white pickup approached the checkpoint at high speed and one of the officers who was standing in the middle of the highway near the checkpoint sign was hit by the bumper of the vehicle and also during the process..."

Uniforms Found In House Search
And while police look for that pickup with a broken side mirror - in Punta Gorda, the cops came upon a stash of police uniforms in a house search. They were in possession of a special constable and the cops say they may be legit. Here's more:... ACP Joseph Myvett - Head of National Crime Investigations Branch: "On the 22nd September sometime around 5:30am, Punta Gorda police conducted a search at the residence of Kevin Trapp, 20 year old of an Oreo Street Address in Punta Gorda. As a result a number of police uniforms were found. However, during the investigative process it is learnt that Mr. Trapp was a member of the police youth cadet corps for a while before he became a special constable. So far he has only been charged for assaulting a police officer. I do not know at the point in time whether other charges are forthcoming in relation to the uniforms."

50 Boxes of Sugar Cane Insecticide Found West, But For Whom?
And while police in the south were looking for uniforms, a patrol team out west came out with a large amount of contraband insecticide. It happened on the Calla Creek Road which is a main route for contraband smugglers. The cops caught two Guatemalans coming through in a pickup with Beqnue plates, loaded with insecticide:... ACP Joseph Myvett - Head of National Crime Investigations Branch "Also on the 22nd September, sometime around 11:30am whilst San Ignacio police were conducting mobile patrol in the Calla Creek area, they came across a red Toyota pickup which had 2 occupants and at the time the pickup was loaded with 40 cases of respec insecticide..."

Guardsman With Ganja
And in another bust, a Coast GuaRdsman was busted with marijuana in retail quantities and packaging. Police told us it happened in Dangriga:... ACP Joseph Myvett - Head of National Crime Investigations Branch: "On Thursday 20th September, sometime around 6:55pm, Dangriga police was conducting patrols in the Riverside area where they conducted a search on Leonard Flores, 25 year old Belizean Coast Guard officer. During the process of the search of a bag he had, 54.1 grams of cannabis was found.

There Will Be More Than One Arrest For Pier One Brawl
Last week we told you about a single arrest for the Pier One bar brawl that left three persons injured. Well, another video has emerged showing just how lawless the entire episode was. And the acting police commissioner has directed that everyone in the video be found and arrested for disorderly conduct. Police told us more charges will be coming forward:...

National Day Speeches Were Combative
On Thursday at midnight, the Belize flag went up for the 37th time - this one at the memorial park in Belize City. And on Friday, it was the official independence day ceremonies in Belmopan. The main speeches were given by the Leader of the Opposition and the Acting Prime Minister, with an introduction by their host mayor, Khalid Belisle:.. In terms of cherry plums, there weren't many, but there were a few. First, the announcement that another project is in the pipeline for the Phillip Goldson Highway, to re-pave it from mile 24.5 all the way to the Corozal border.

Sherlette, Queen Of the San Pedro Jump Up Parade, IS BACK!
The 2018 Jump Up Parade for September 21st – Independence Day was extra awesome this year. It just seemed a little bit longer…a little bit more colorful…super fun. And despite the fact that it is always BLAZING hot in late September in Belize (think 100% humidity and temperature that feels over 100) and the parade always starts a bit late…I wouldn’t miss it for anything. There is a bigger parade in Orange Walk, Belize on the 21st – and ONE DAY, I keep saying, I will totally make it to that one. But I just can’t seem to rip myself away from San Pedro. This year it was SO GOOD to see some of the schools participating again. There has been a bit of controversy in years past…about kids and drinking (many of the floats have coolers and bartenders!) but I love to see Island Academy and ABC Pre-School parading again.

Travel Bucket List: Exploring Caves in Belize
While many travelers flee to the cayes when they touch down in Belize, the mainland itself — both above and below ground — offers incredible adventure opportunities. On a recent visit, the award-winning, full-service San Ignacio Resort Hotel in the Cayo District of western Belize revealed a landscape full of exotic flora and fauna. The resort is home to the Green Iguana Conservation Project, a continuous effort that aims to look after the endangered green iguana species in Belize. The boutique property also runs a number of day trips throughout this unique area of Central America, including one to Barton Creek Cave where, after canoeing through a giant crack in a mountain, visitors are greeted by magnificent natural formations. Ambient light gives way to headlamps inside this magical world of the ancient Maya, whose traces — in the form of pottery shards and human remains — can still be found throughout the cave.

Low Season in Belize is Chillout Time
Here in Belize, the weather stays pretty constant all year round (it’s always hot, sunny, and humid), and there is tourism all year round…but there are some distinct differences between high season and low season in terms of day-to-day living. And at this time of year, it’s definitely more chilled. Low season (rainy season) runs from about June to October. There is a distinct increase in rainfall, but it comes mostly at night, or in short bursts during the day. The villages explode with growth and color during these times, and for storm lovers, the thunderstorms are epic. Frogs love the puddles the rainy season brings, and so you see more of them hopping around at this time of year. You’ll find you need to wear a little more bug spray, but we also have more rainbows, and gorgeous sunsets and sunrises during these months.

Independence Day in Belize, 2018!!!! San Pedro & Placencia...
Although September is low season, one of the highlights of the low season is Independence Day - September 21st! This year was 37 years for Belize as an independent country. The country takes its celebration very seriously! The party starts at the beginning of the month with St. George's Caye Day and continues through the month. You'll see streamers, flags, and national pride everywhere. The party started in Placencia overnight on the 20th/early the 21st at "jouvert" (large party) which was an overnight parade and fireworks! During the day on the 21st, our guests at CBC celebrated starting in the afternoon.... And then the afternoon parade in Placencia! It starts a couple miles north of the village, and the parade walks all the way through town, where the party ensues into the night!

Best Beaches in Belize
Simply put, Belize has been blessed by a bounty of beautiful beaches. Belize enjoys more than 200 miles (380 kilometers) of beaches along its Caribbean coast, ensuring a more than ample supply of white sandy beaches for both locals and tourists to enjoy. In addition, Belize has more than 200 offshore islands located on the Belize Barrier Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the second-largest coral reef system in the world. In Belize, islands are known as cayes (pronounced “keys”), and most are located within just a few miles of the mainland. Belize’s largest island is the popular tourist destination of Ambergris Caye. Measuring 25 miles (40 km) long by one mile (1.6 km) across, Ambergris Caye is home to some 15,000 people. Other popular tourist destinations include Caye Caulker, Tobacco Caye, and Lighthouse Reef Atoll. Many of Belize’s islands lie inside protected marine environents and are uninhabited except for scientific monitoring stations.

Diving in the Outer Cayes and Atolls of Belize
The Belize Barrier Reef is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most biologically diverse marine environments on the planet, making it the ideal place to enjoy activities like scuba diving and snorkeling. The Belize Barrier Reef is composed of more than 400 islands and three atolls, the only true atolls in the world found outside of the Pacific Ocean. Atolls look like rings of coral with a lagoon in the center because they originally formed around volcanic seamounts that were later subsumed underneath the waves. The barrier reef contains seven different protected marine conservation areas, making them great places to enjoy scuba diving. Some of the most amazing sites that you can visit on the Belize Barrier Reef include:

Belize in November: Weather, Places to Visit & Activities

On your November vacation in Belize, you can enjoy activities such as:

10 Gorgeous Birds You Are Likely To See On Your Belize Vacation
With more than 600 different bird species recorded in Belize, it can be difficult to decide a top 10 list of the most beautiful. Belize’s pristine landscapes of mountain forests, wetlands, offshore islands, rainforests, and jungle make it an ideal location for birds to thrive, including several rare and endangered species. Here is our list of the top 10 most gorgeous birds in Belize:

Is Belize Safe
Belize is a small country, but because it isn’t well-known by outsiders, a lot of visitors want to know if it is safe to visit. Of course, no country is ever going to be completely safe from crime and other risks, but Belize is an incredibly safe country for foreign visitors. Tourism is an important part of the Belizean economy. With over one million visitors a year to a country smaller than the state of Massachusetts, the government of Belize takes visitor safety extremely seriously. As such, the vast majority of visitors to Belize enjoy a wonderful, safe, and incident-free vacation. Belize is primarily a rural country. The only relatively large urban area is Belize City. Formerly the capital, Belize City is still the largest metropolis in the country with around 75,000 inhabitants. Some areas of the outskirts of Belize City are very poor and where most of the serious crimes in the country occur. But because these are far from the normal tourist spots, these incidents rarely impact foreign visitors.

Belize: Staff Concluding Statement of the 2018 Article IV Mission
A Concluding Statement describes the preliminary findings of IMF staff at the end of an official staff visit (or ‘mission’), in most cases to a member country. Missions are undertaken as part of regular (usually annual) consultations under Article IV of the IMF's Articles of Agreement, in the context of a request to use IMF resources (borrow from the IMF), as part of discussions of staff monitored programs, or as part of other staff monitoring of economic developments. The authorities have consented to the publication of this statement. The views expressed in this statement are those of the IMF staff and do not necessarily represent the views of the IMF’s Executive Board. Based on the preliminary findings of this mission, staff will prepare a report that, subject to management approval, will be presented to the IMF Executive Board for discussion and decision.

10 of the Most Incredible Natural Phenomena to See Before You Die (or They're Gone)
From the tropical paradise of Cook Island to the rolling greenery of the Scottish Highlands, your travel bucket list is ever expanding. But we suggest you add a little wiggle room in your itinerary for some of these you-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it sites. Pink lakes, sherbet-colored mountains and glowing beaches—this planet is an amazing place. But make plans to see these wonders soon, before they disappear. If you couldn’t tell by its name, the Great Blue Hole is a giant underwater hole in the middle of Lighthouse Reef, 73 miles off the coast of Belize. Technically, it’s a sinkhole that formed as far back as 153,000 years ago, before sea levels were as high as they are today. After some glaciers danced around and melted, oceans rose and filled in the hole (very scientific explanation, no?). The near-perfect circle (wow) is 1,043 feet in diameter and 407 feet deep, giving it a dark navy hue.

Hidden deep in the rainforest, these ancient ruins were only discovered in 1937, making them the most recent city discovered from Maya. It houses several buildings and pyramids which were set up as residence in a class system; the "higher" class was the closer to the top of the pyramids, so you were closer to the Gods. Our guide said that Caracol was abandoned after several years of drought, so the mayan's left for easier to farm land. Back in its hay-day, it covered about 112 square miles (180km)! A breathtaking site!
