This comes into effect on August 26, 2020. At 12:01 a.m. the special lock down for the villages of Guinea Grass, Santa Martha, and Shipyard will expire and they will now be governed by the regulations that apply to the rest of Belize. Special regulations remain in effect for Ambergris Caye. Under this new amendment, there is a penalty of one year imprisonment for any individual found to be bribing any member of the security forces. Furthermore, any member of the security forces found to be extorting an individual under the guise of their office is liable to one year imprisonment.
