In the course of oral argument before the CCJ, the parties came to an agreement. With the consent of the parties and having considered that there were no sustainable bases for a finding of fraudulent misrepresentation, the CCJ ordered that the appeal be allowed, and the decision of the Court of Appeal be set aside. Further, on the issue of breach of contract, the court ordered that the matter be remitted to the Supreme Court for assessment of damages to be heard by a judge of that court.

Elderly Couple Killed In Orange Walk - Son's Whereabouts Unknown
Tonight, Orange Walk Town is reeling after a well-known, well-liked and law abiding couple were stabbed to death in their home. Rafael Huezo Sr and Nancy Huezo were killed sometime between Friday night and this morning - when they were found in an advanced state of decomposition. Our colleagues at CTV-3 were first on the scene - and we have this report: For Orange Walk residents, it was an unbelievable scene as the bodies of a well-known couple were carried out of their home on Stadium Street in body bags.

Village Vigilantes Unleash Brutality on City Robbers
And keeping it in the Orange Walk District, a mob of vigilantes doled out some harsh village justice on two Belize City men - who allegedly came to their village to rob. It was an unbelievable scene that started around 7:15 when two men in camouflage outfits held up the village grocer. They were caught a short time after in a scary and unforgettable scene. Here's the story: This was the scene on Friday night when two men robbed Zhen Zhen store in Guinea Grass. ACP Joseph Myvette - Head, NCIB: "On Friday last, police responded to a robbery at Zhen Zhen store in Guinea Grass, shortly after 9:20 p.m..."

Another Burnt Up Drug Plane - This Time It's Sarteneja
Another suspected drug plane has landed in northern Belize, and this one was also burnt up. But, this one didn't land on some bushy improvised airstrip - it was on a proper paved runway in the village of Sarteneja. Police told us they got the call at around 5:00 and found the plane on fire - with its contents gone: ACP Joseph Myvette - Head, NCIB: "This morning, shortly after 5 a.m., Corozal Police were called to the Sarteneja area where, on the Sarteneja Airstrip, a burnt aircraft, twin-engine, was seen on the airstrip, still engulfed in flames. A search conducted on the area revealed several items, empty buckets, and other paraphernalia."

NICH Park Ranger Killed In Cruel Accident
Belizean roadways have seen a multitude of fatal accidents in the last month. And over the weekend, four more lives were lost. And in one of the most horrific accident of the weekend, a man was run over not once, but twice, according to his family. It happened on Saturday morning at around 12:30 on the Bullett Tree Road when 30-year-old Park Ranger Manuel Ye had an accident and Santos Navarro and an Uncle of his came to the aid of. That's when all three men became victims of a bizarre accident. Here's more: A father and husband was killed in an alleged hit and run on Friday night. Manuel Ye was headed home from San Ignacio on the Bullet Tree Road when he fell from his motorcycle. Before long a taxi driver and his uncle stopped to help him, but before they could leave the scene of Ye's minor accident, all three men were hit by another vehicle.

Bowman's Body Found, Closure For Family
The family of 34 year old Belmopan resident Densmore Bowman can breathe a sad sigh of relief tonight: Bowman's body was finally found this morning after 10:00 near mile 25 on the George Price Highway. A post mortem examination found that he had been chopped to death. Sure, it's the absolute worst kind of discovery to find their loved one decomposed in a shallow grave, but for Bowman's family, it represents closure. Bowman had been missing for 17 days, from November 29th. The family found some clues two weeks ago at mile 24 but they had no idea that if they had just walked a mile ahead, they would have found his body sooner. Courtney Weatherburne was out on the scene and has this story.

Police Say It's John Doe
This morning at the press briefing in Belmopan, police didn't have much new to share since the information was just coming in that human remains had been found. We'll keep following the case to see if police make any arrests.

A(nother) Murder In Hattieville
And down the road in Hattieville, a man was ambushed and killed at a Farmer's Site house on Saturday night. 33 year old Phillip Roberts also known as Jonathan had been renting the house to someone else and was just there on Saturday evening with his girlfriend enjoying a meal. That is when two gunmen pounced on him. Here is more from police. Sr. Supt. Hilberto Romero - Deputy Head, NCIB: "On Saturday, the 14th day of December 2019, around 8:03 p.m., police responded to a shooting incident in the Farmer's Site area of Hattieville. Upon their arrival, they found Phillip Roberts, 33 years-old, with gunshot injuries..."

Narrative of an Ambush
And we also spoke to one of Roberts' girlfriends who was inside the home when the shots rang out. We also spoke to his sister off camera. Roberts leaves behind 2 daughters. He died on the way to the hospital. The post mortem is scheduled for Friday.

Shooting Victim Survives Night On The Side of A Picado Road
So, while Hattieville police are investigating the Roberts murder, they must also determine what was behind the shooting of a Belize City man. It is believed that his assailant or assailants shot him last night and left him for dead on an unnamed road. He's 37-year-old Brian Harris, who's a resident of Belama in Belize City, but according to police, they found him this morning suffering from multiple gunshot injuries on a picado road off mile 17 and a half on the George Price Highway. It is unclear why Harris was in the vicinity of Hattieville.

Man Crashes Into Lamppost and Dies
22-year-old Jaime Williams died in an accident just before 10:00 last night. It happened at the junction of Trapiche road and Loma Luz Boulevard. Williams was driving from San Ignacio to Santa Elena town. But something went wrong and he slammed into a lamp-post which caused the vehicle to flip and his body to be flung into the roadside bushes. Today his family visited the scene of the unbelievable accident.

Teenager Dies When Dad's Van Has A Blowout
And in the south, a 15-year-old student lost her life on Sunday morning while she and her family were heading back to their home village of Bella Vista. Sometime before 1:00 a.m. yesterday, Shelmadine Coc was traveling with 34-year-old Santiago Coc Sr., 14-year-old Jonathan Coc, 12-year-old Santiago Coc Jr., 2-year-old John Coc, and Teresa Chok. Police believe that Coc Sr had a blowout - which caused the van to flip. Although everyone in the vehicle suffered varying degrees of injuries, Shelmadine Coc was the most severely hurt. She passed away on the scene.

Friday's Fatality Came First
Turning now to the Stann Creek District, we have an update on the accident we first told you about on Friday. A 60-year-old Dangriga resident died in that collision at mile 13 on the Stann Creek Valley Road. She was in a Toyota Highlander SUV - which crashed head on into a chevy passenger van. Police say the accident happened on a curve: ACP Joseph Myvette- Head of NCIB: "On Friday the 13th of December sometime around 3:30 pm, Dangriga police were called to an area between miles 12 and 13 on the Hummingbird Highway where they arrived at the seen of an accident..."

Apparent Drowning in Crooked Tree
And in another kind of weekend accident, a woman apparently drowned in Crooked Tree Village. She's 34-year-old Diana Emerita Pott Jones, and her body was discovered at around 9:00 on Saturday morning. There were no signs of violence on her body, which lines up with initial police investigation into her death. The cops told us today that she was last seen swimming in the lagoon on Friday evening at around 5:00. Here's are few more details from the Assistant Police Commissioner Joseph Myvette:

Police Seeking Well Known Suspect For Timroy Neal Murder
On Friday's news, we told you about the ruthless street execution of 28-year-old Timroy Neal, a resident of Roaring Creek Village. Surveillance cameras from the Lucky Entertainment Store in Roaring Creek captured the entire murder which happened at around 10:00 last Thursday night. He was walking toward the store when a gunman arrived on a motorcycle. That assailant ran up behind him and shot him before he could react. When he fell to the pavement, the shooter then immediately took the opportunity to shoot him 6 more times before fleeing the scene.

Cricket Women's Team Starred in Costa Rica
Belize's first all-female cricket team to travel internationally has returned with Gold from the Mid-Season International Tour in Costa Rica. They play six games against three teams from Costa Rica - and lost only one. It's an incredible outcome in the first international outing for Belize's Women Cricket Team. And even more so because organized cricket for women just recently started up in Belize. We were at the airport to greet them on their return this afternoon:

Another Guatemalan Gold Panner
Last Thursday, Chiquibul forest rangers busted a trio of Guatemalan gold panners in Ceibo Chico. But, two escaped and the Joint Forces Unit detained one of them. He is Santos David Xol Yat, a 30 year old Guatemalan national, resident of Monte Los Olivos, Peten, Guatemala. He was one of two Guatemalans in a creek at the foothill of the Chiquibul-Maya Mountains, 5 miles within Belize. One of them had a shovel in his hand, and the other had an iron bar which both of them were using to dig inside the creek.

6 Guns Off the Street in San Pedro
Police took a total of 6 guns off the streets of San Pedro in just a few hours on Thursday. We told you about the first bust on Friday, when the cops got three guns in an early morning operation. They found one on Marcus Garcia, another on Alex Matura, and another on Matthew Moses. Well, later that day, island police conducted an operation where they got three weapons.

How Were They Going To Use Molotov's?
You've heard a whole lot from today's press briefing, but the police didn't want to talk about this: three roughly made Molotov cocktails. They were found inside a car that police stopped because it was going against traffic on Fair-weather Street.

Belmopan Teen Missing
Even though the final days of 2019 are almost here, residents will definitely remember all of those missing person cases this year which resulted in disturbing murders. And so, families of two more missing persons are anxious to locate them as soon as possible. 17-year-old Damion Bregal, a resident of Cayo Street in Belmopan, left his family house last week Friday evening, and since then, he hasn't been seen or heard from.

Jahira Avoiding Her Family?
AND, Another Belmopan family is worried about their missing 16-year-old teenager. She's Jahira Martinez, a resident of Uruguay Street, and she was last seen last Friday morning at around 7:30. At today's press briefing, Police said that they are looking for her, but they have received information that she may be purposefully avoiding her family.

Teenaged Minor Shot On Seagull
And, finally, a teenager was shot on Seagull Street on Saturday night. Kamron Adolphus, and Rasaan Leslie were both shot by a gunman on a bicycle.

Aqua Sushi Restaurant – an example of the ever-evolving culinary arts of Belize
Aqua Sushi and Steakhouse at Grand Caribe is a prime example of just how much our local chefs have grown. Chef Samuel Gonzalez Jr. (Samii) is a fantastic success story of a young man who moved his way through the kitchen to become an executive chef, with intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the cooking sanctum. His mind is always working, and as he tastes food wherever he goes, he has lots of ideas on how to re-create, improve, re-design or replicate. It’s no surprise that when he was trained to take on sushi that he would pass the test with flying colors!

Coffee and Pastries/Belize City
Le Petite Café: This quaint coffee house is in what might be the most beautiful part of Belize City, fringed by the sea and in an iconic colonial neighborhood.

Martha’s Café: This lovely colonial house has a wrap-around verandah overlooking Belize Harbour. The view is second-to-none, and near to a park and the Baron Bliss Lighthouse.

Touring the Mennonite Communities of Belize
In 1957, several Mennonite communities were living in Mexico. The Mexican government had recently changed the law to allow Mennonites to be drafted into the army. The Mennonites realized they needed a new home. The Mennonites made a deal with the government of Belize. The Mennonites would help Belize produce a wide variety of agricultural and dairy products, and in return, they could practice their religion free from persecution. Their children would never be drafted or sent to war. In 1958, the Mennonites established their first community in the community of Spanish Lookout in the Cayo District.

The British: A Brief History
History can be compared to a river rushing over all the events that lie like rocks in its path, swirling around and coming back for a second look at only those with the biggest impact. This is especially true of the British influence in modern-day Belizean culture. So many aspects of everyday life in Belize are directly attributed to British tenure that it’s easy to take them for granted. However, Britain’s early occupation, and then colonization, is one of the reasons Belize remains unique among all the countries of Central America.

Below Caribbean waves, ‘a huge disaster’: Stony coral tissue loss disease attacks reefs
A malady called stony coral tissue loss disease has been raging since 2014 through reefs under the deceptively calm blue paradise of the Caribbean. In five years, it has wreaked devastation on the fragile coral ecosystems that are at risk of extinction from the effects of climate change. The disease has ravaged the entire Atlantic reef off Florida, spread across parts of the Caribbean and has recently been reported near Belize in Central America. “It is a huge disaster that’s going on underneath the waves,” says Karen Neely, a coral ecologist at Nova Southeastern University in Florida. “This is on the level of the Amazon burning. It is on the level of a disease that’s wiping out all of America’s forests.”

Belize women’s cricket team makes history by winning first three matches against Costa Rica

Archaeologist believe that Santa Rita is almost certainly the ancient city of Chetumal and was occupied from 2000 BC to 1530 AD, with its primary importance in the Late Post Classic Period from 1350-1530 when it was an important center for the trade of honey, vanilla, cacao and anchiote to the northern Yucatan and other locations. The breadth of the trade that flourished in Santa Rita is evidenced by findings at the site that include Andean pottery from the Late Classic Period and turquoise jewelry from the Aztecs.
