Ambassador Speaks on Refugee Issue

Updated: May 13, 2016

The issue of refugees in Belize has been in the headlines over the last week as some have questioned how the program is operating. Last week Prime Minister Dean Barrow and Minister of Immigration, Beverly Castillo said there are two programs that deal with refugees.  Last night when we caught up with US Ambassador we asked for his views as well as the role of the US.


Prime Minsiter Barrow has indicated that before the temporary protection agreement is implemented, consultations would take place.
