Ongoing Boundary Dispute in Villages Continues Amid Government’s Delay in Official Demarcation

Ongoing Boundary Dispute in Villages Continues Amid Government’s Delay in Official Demarcation

While both parties continue to lobby for what they both believe is their village’s boundaries, the government has yet to declare the official demarcation. Early this year, the villagers had expressed apprehension over the potential surveying of the land, which had led to government’s intervention. Back in May, Minister of Indigenous People’s Affairs Dolores Balderamos-Garcia explained that it was a difficult situation given the CCJ’s ruling on Mayan customary land rights. For context relating to the recent rise of tensions, we re-visit her comments on the matter, made in May this year.

The tensions over land in that area has been going on for some time now with Police officers having to step in to maintain peace.  Our newsroom will continue our coverage of this situation in tomorrow’s newscast.
