SATIIM questions Government’s progress or lack of progress on CCJ’s ruling

The International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples was observed today. This is in recognition of the first meeting of the United Nations Working Group on Indigenous Populations in Geneva in 1982.  On the occasion of the day, the Sarstoon Temash Institute for Indigenous Management, SATIIM questions the Government of Belize on the progress or lack of progress made in meeting the ruling of the Caribbean Court of Justice. SATIIM says to mark the day last year, they launched the Maya Lands Registry of customary land usage and delineation. Crique Sarco became the first Maya community to present its map to the Attorney General however; to date there has been no response from the Government.  SATIIM’s Executive Director, Froyla Tzalam is quoted as saying three years after the CCJ’s ruling there is no mechanism in place to address it. In fact, Tzalam said SATIIM is the only entity to make any effort to identify lands the Government is supposed to be protecting.  She invites the Government to work with SATIIM and the communities to create maps according to the model established by the Maya Lands Registry.
