PBL VANDALISM

PBL sets the record straight

Meanwhile, things at the Port of Belize is no better. The company issued a statement that insists the protest on Wednesday, July 22, by the workers was nowhere near peaceful. They stated that CWU members set vehicles on fire, hurled projectiles at PBL staff and police, sabotaged the electrical supply, damaged the IT and security infrastructure, smashed windows of buildings, and threatened PBL staff with deadly and bodily harm.

According to PBL, Police officers on the scene showed restraint in the morning and only reacted after the actions from CWU escalated to a level of violence. As it relates to the 36 PBL employees that were terminated as a result of redundancy, they stated that due to COVID-19, they have seen a 94% reduction in cruise vessel revenue and a 26 % reduction in cargo revenue. This, in turn, makes the 2020 net result 14 times worse than the 2019 period.
