Belizean Fishermen Taken by the GAF

Updated: October 17, 2016

Six Belizeans are back home safely after they were detained by the Guatemalan Navy personnel earlier today. We understand three fishing boats were in front of Mozambique, in an area traditionally used by fishermen, when they were approached by the Guatemalan authorities. Love News spoke with Leonardo Cus who was contacted by one of the fishermen and alerted the officials.


The three boats were reportedly towed into Guatemalan waters where the occupants were warned about fishing in Guatemalan waters. They were released shortly after.
