12 Guatemalans, With $40K US, Found On The MOHO River By BCG

12 Guatemalan nationals were found on a boat on the MOHO river, which is only 15 miles south of Punta Gorda, and is many miles north of the border with Guatemala.

The Belize Coast Guard found the 12 men on a boat, they also found 2 other boats nearby on the river and escorted them to the Punta Gorda Police Station. When contacted, the Punta Gorda Police confirmed that the men were detained, but were released, presumably to leave Belize’s territory and return to Guatemala.

No official statements has been issued, yet’, by the Belize Coast Guard or the Police Department about this latest incident of intrusion by Guatemalans into Belize.

There have been countless instances of Guatemalans entering Belize’s territory, and in some cases they have been clearing land in several areas in Belize near the border. Based on recent incidents, it appears that Belize’s ministry of National Security and the BDF are doing everything they can to avoid a confrontation with the Guatemalans, who seem to be trying to instigate confrontational incidents.
