An estimated fifty thousand pounds of imported ham are at our western border point with the Belize Agricultural Health Authority (BAHA) awaiting further instructions from officials on how to move forward.  Agriculture Minister, Godwin Hulse says he is yet to be fully briefed on the matter and so he spoke to us on the situation so far.


The ham is reportedly from the United States and was destined for Ecuador but upon arrival they were rejected.  We will keep following this story.
