Does NICH and Dark Knight Have Exclusive Deal?

The Federation of Cruise Tourism Associations of Belize (FECTAB) has come back to the media to express their concerns over a number of issues. Once again the Federation is against what they feel is preferential treatment towards the cave tubing company, Dark Knight owned by Bradley Paumen. Today they spoke of a contract signed with National Institute Culture and History (NICH). The contract that FECTAB provided states that NICH and Dark Knight conducted a plan on entrance fees to be collected by Dark Knight and then be paid to NICH. Co-executive David Almendarez argues that it’s not done for other cave tubing companies.


FECTAB has requested for a full investigation of NICH, and the Minister of Tourism by the Government.
