MFFESD Comments on Measures to Control and Eventually Phase-Out Gill Nets
The issue of gill nets can be readily classified as a resource use challenge. In resource use challenges, one user advocates to secure the resource they think the other user is over-utilizing. Any action taken to resolve these situations must ensure that livelihoods security is a priority, especially for dependent communities. Today, this is referred to as social safeguards.
An international NGO has proposed to fund a gill nets buy-back programme if a ban on gill nets is first instituted. From a social safeguard standpoint, a better approach is to ensure livelihoods are secured first before a ban is instituted.
The Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan) Continues to Contribute to the Infrastructure Development of Belize

Story of Tzukan and Chaak
The ancient legend tells that of all the snakes that inhabited the Earth, Tzukán , protector of grottos and cenotes , was unique for its large size and mysticism.
During the first drought of the Maya empire, thousands of years ago, Chaac , Lord of the Rain , was entrusted to collect the water from the subsoil and take it to the rest of the Maya empire. Chaac mounted a winged beast and looked for the precious liquid everywhere, but the lakes , rivers and cenotes were dry. Where was the water ?
Tired of the search, the Rain Lord decided to rest a little and sat on a log, but it began to move. The deity and her animal were frightened to see that it was not a piece of wood, but the body of a huge snake. Hungry, the reptile opened the jaws and devoured the winged beast of Chaac in a single bite before he could fly.
El Pájaro Dziú y Chaac
Cuentan por ahí, que una mańana, Chaac, el Seńor de la Lluvia, sintió deseos de pasear y quiso recorrer los campos de El Mayab. Chaac salió muy contento, seguro de que encontraría los cultivos fuertes y crecidos, pero apenas llegó a verlos, su sorpresa fue muy grande, pues se encontró con que las plantas estaban débiles y la tierra seca y gastada. Al darse cuenta de que las cosechas serían muy pobres, Chaac se preocupó mucho. Luego de pensar un rato, en...
Another Burnt Drug Plane In The North
Early this morning, a drug plane landed in northern Belize. It was found burned and abandoned in Chan Chen - which is the northernmost village in the Corozal district.
Police found this on an unpaved landing strip a quarter of a mile north west of Chan Chen Village - which is very close to Mexico.
It appears to be another Hawker Sidley 125 - just like the one abandoned in Blue Creek in October. No cargo or passengers were found, but the drug runners did leave behind either a clue or a message for police. It's this, an extended banana clip, the kind that is used in assault rifles. This one was found with 34 live rounds. Police also found 11 small aluminum buckets, and 4 portable rechargeable led lights. These are commonly used lighting gear in illicit nighttime landings.
Elito Puc Met A Terrible End
Last night we told you that the decapitated body of a missing man had been found in the Adjacency zone on property belonging to Jorge Espat - the same property that's been in the news because Guatemalans are encroaching on it.
Elito had been missing since Thursday the 28th of November when he left his workplace at Silva's bus yard shortly before 7:00 in the evening reportedly to run errands in Melchor.
And while the Puc family say they want justice for their brother and son. The people of Benque may be hard-pressed to share that sentiment because Elito had a very troubled past.
Densmore's Family Finds Troubling Clues
And while the Puc family has a very terrible sort of closure for their loved one, tonight, the family of Densmore Bowman remains desperate.
The 34 year old Belmopan resident has been missing for one week and counting, after he went out last Friday afternoon to pick up money from Western Union. Bowman was reportedly seen thereafter socializing at a bar in the market square area until about 8:00 that night.
Today, police responded to a report that a pair of trousers which could be his was seen at mile 24, across from the Solid Waste Transfer Station.
Shooting Victim Gerald Lamb On Life Support
Last night we told you that 28-year-old Gerald Lamb had been shot four times, three times to the head and once to the abdomen. His family believes that he was targeted due to a case of mistaken identity.
Tonight we can report that Gerald Lamb remains on life support and is breathing only with the help of a machine. Lamb is currently in a coma and remains very critical.
Lottery Contract Put Out To Tender
After months of clamouring, the contract to run Belize's Boledo is going out to tender. A notice went out from Belmopan today saying that Government, quote, "invites tenders to administer the distribution, sale and marketing of lottery tickets of the Belize Government Lottery (Boledo, Jackpot Lottery and Ordinary Lottery)."
So, here's how it works. There are two rounds, first the applications will be reviewed for technical details, and the best ones will be short listed.
In the second round, the selection committee will review the financial proposals of the shortlisted bids, and a winner will be selected.
Senate's Robust Debate On Butane Price Control
There was a Senate Meeting in Belmopan today to follow up on the government business that was tabled in the House of Representatives on Wednesday. But, the most polarizing draft legislation of the day was the Supplies Control Amendment Bill of 2019.
As we told you, this is the Government's fix for the pricing issues within the LPG industry, which we call butane.
The problem started with the passage of the National Liquified Petroleum Gas Project law several months ago. That law tried to break up the monopoly that the 3 LPG companies, all owned by 1 Mexican family, held on the importation of butane in Belize. So, according to the Government, these companies retaliated by engaging in what is known as predatory pricing. While they can't control the importation of butane anymore, they still have major influence over the retail market.
The Battle Over IDB Education Funding
Another piece of legislation that attracted opposing views is a 20-million-dollar loan from the Inter-American Development Bank.
The money is for their Education Quality Improvement Program or EQIP 2. It focuses on developing strong fundamentals in subject areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics, which is commonly referred to as STEAM. They want to equip the next generation of Belizeans to be innovators and specialists in these different fields of study, instead of having to import outside talent.
Widespread Bashing of GOB on Gillnets
Tonight, there is widespread condemnation for government's position on gill nets - which was announced yesterday. It is not the ban that conservationists were hoping for, instead there are measures to, quote, "Control and Eventually Phase Out Gill Nets."
Today, at the Senate meeting, the NGO Senator Osmany Salas said it's a disappointment and one they will fight against:
Osmany Salas, Senator for N.G.O.s:
"Its certainly not a gillnet ban. We were waiting with bated breath after all the work that the N.G.O.s and the coalition had done..."
OCEANA Laments Loss of An Opportunity
Yesterday OCEANA struck out at the decision, and lamented that in saying yes to gillnets, government had basically walked away from "a two-million-dollar financial aid package that would have been disbursed to licensed Belizean fishers as part of their agreement to transition away from gillnets."
Today, Janelle Chanona who is away held a phone press conference with the media and said that it's a loss for Belize's fishers and natural resources:
"This is obviously not the gillnet ban that so many people have been working hard toward."
"This decision will have far reaching implications for both fisheries and tourism, and therefore to our national economy."
Territorial Volunteers Blast GOB
Government's release on gill nets does note that the use of gill nets will be forbidden in the southernmost waters, south of Punta Gorda.
Today, the Belize Territorial Volunteers' Will Maheia called that a joke - and a very bad one:..
The BTIA says it will also condemn government's position.
This evening, feeling the heat from the widespread rejection, Government went on a mini counter offensive, sending two releases at newstime.
A New Way To See Belize
Those of you who love browsing TV channels can now check out Belize's first channel, it's called See Belize Travel Channel. The Belize Tourism Board, Color Blind Multimedia Productions and NICH launched the channel today. I found out about the content and why this channel is going to be a game changer for tourists and Belizeans alike.
Courtney Weatherburne reporting:
These are just a few of the breathtaking shots that will be featured on the See Belize Channel.
There will also be several TV series and different programs that locals and tourists can follow that highlight everything Belize.
Min Heredia Cool about Tourist Downturn
And, right now, Belize tourism may need more than just that shot in the arm. For the first time in many years, overnight tourism arrivals were down for an entire quarter.
That was the third quarter of this year when tourist arrivals were down resulting in a 6.2 percent fall in hotel as well as 13 fewer cruise ship calls during this period.
Could be a worrying trend, but today the Minister said it's not that bad in the regional context:
DPP Discusses Prosecutorial Challenges
Last night, we showed you our one-on-one interview with DPP Cheryl-Lynn Vidal. She was sort of taking a victory lap after the successful prosecution which resulted in the conviction of William Danny Mason, and his 4 employees for the 2016 murder of Pastor Lewellyn Lucas.
We also asked about other less successful prosecutions which have ended with accused murderers getting off by evading justice almost entirely.
We asked about those cases where main witnesses go rogue, or when her office is forced to withdraw charges against accused murderers in the very early stages of prosecution.
Suicide Behind Bars
An inmate has apparently committed suicide at the Belize Central Prison. Last night 26 year old Byron Alarcon was found hanging from a prison window by a piece of fabric. 7News has learnt that he was placed alone in a cell at the special care unit at the prison - which is reserved for psychiatric cases. He was supposed to the see the psychiatrist today, but he was found dead at 9:00 last night.
Alarcon had been in jail since June 2018, convicted for burglary, theft and damage to property.
Benque Deputy Mayor Caught In Western Carjacking
The Deputy Mayor of Benque was carjacked yesterday morning. It happened at about 10:00 in the remote reached of the Mountain Pine Ridge Area. 56-year-old Alvaro Gongora along with his employees were working on a farm located 20 yards off of main Hydro Road when they were approached by three masked men who were armed with 2 handguns.
Special Kind of Athletes
Over 250 kids from all over the country participated in the Special Olympics games today. It was a fun filled day with various sporting activities and even booths for dental checkups and health information. Here is more.
Today there were cheers of encouragement for the Special Olympics athletes at the Marion Jones Stadium as they showcased their talent in track and field, 7 a side football and Bocce (baa-chee).
The Special Olympics is the final event in a series of activities in celebration of national disability week where the kids from all over the country participate.
Hopkins Gets New Water System
The tourist friendly village of Hopkins has a high tech new water system. The system has been rehabilitated and expanded with funds from the Banana Accompanying Measures Program 2013 to the tune of 2 million dollars.
Man Says Soldier Tried To Drown Him in Hondo
There was some cross-river confusion in the area of Santa Cruz Belize and Botes Mexico today. It's a very popular illegal crossing - and one that law enforcement has been trying to shut down because of the traffic in contraband.
Today, we received reports that the BDF had lost a drone in the rio Hondo which passes through the two villages.
The Media's "In Da House"ť
This week, we've twice taken you to the National Assembly Building to cover House and Senate Meetings. Tonight though, we'll have a little fun and show you what happens with the media behind the scenes of those meetings. Here's what our team captured on just another day at the House on Wednesday:
While you are used to seeing these guys take center stage at house meetings, behind the curtain are these guys, US, the media trying to compress hours of house floor hyperbole, grandstanding and effrontery into digestible sound bytes, all while sitting on the floor. It's a day of physical and mental stress, interspersed with boredom and blown deadlines:
Hope For Destinee
The Miss Universe pageant takes place on Sunday, and Belizeans have been showing their love for 26-year-old Destinee Arnold since the day she was crowned. She's received massive support from her fans, as they actively solicited votes in a poll that could have guaranteed her a top 20 spot.
Destinee is an American Born Belize Beauty Queen who has participated in several pageants on the world stage including Miss International, and her fans feel that she is the most professional candidate Belize has ever presented at Miss Universe.
Next is Dance X
And that's 7news on this Friday night. We leave you this evening with highlites of last weekend's Dance X.
Enjoy, have a great weekend and join us back here on Monday
