Guatemalan Protest in Melchor de Mencos halt Cargo trucks from entering Belize

BORDER BRIDGE 1.00_00_10_21.Still001

This morning, cargo trucks coming into Belize were stopped by Guatemalan protestors at the bridge in Melchor de Mencos, Guatemala. The protest halted products coming in from Guatemala to Belize.

This morning, cargo trucks coming into Belize were stopped by Guatemalan protesters at the bridge in Melchor de Mencos, Guatemala. The protest halted products coming in from Guatemala to Belize. The protest reportedly had to do with an immigration issue. Love News contacted the director of border management, Debra Estrada for a comment on the situation but our calls went unanswered. Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams commented on the matter stating that it was out of their jurisdiction since it occurred in Guatemala.

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: “Yes we have received information that the Guatemalans are protesting on the Guatemalan side of Melchor and that protest has now resulted in the blockage of the Melchor Bridge. Yes we know that that bridge is key in terms of goods coming into Belize from the Guatemalan side particularly fuel. That matter is being looked at through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs I guess they’re going to see how it can resolve through diplomatic means it is not a matter for us because it is not within our country and so we just await to see what will happen from through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.”

Dr. Marvin Manzanero, Director of the Health Services, spoke about whether or not these truck drivers and their laborers are allowed to enter the country.

Dr.Marvin Manzanero, Director of Health Services: “Again if you’re coming in it has to do with risk. If you’re coming in to just deliver and then go back out without minimum interaction with anybody I don’t know that that would be a high risk activity. It’s the constant activity, assuming that these people are also not ill I don’t know that we should – I guess they can come in. I hear what you’re saying in terms of what happens up north versus what happens down west but it should be able to happen if people are routinely just coming into do their delivery and go back out with minimum interaction with the general public I don’t think that that should be a problem as we move along.”

Love News understands that the matter has been resolved and the truck drivers were allowed to enter the country to deliver their goods.
