Street_Upgrade-1Portion_of_1st_Street_North_in_Corozal_Town_to_be_paved_under_the_BMDP_Street_ProjectThe Chinese Community in Corozal were in an uproar over the Christmas Day holiday as they claim they were cheated out on making sales on their alcoholic beverages stock specifically, beers.

 

In a release sent to the Corozal Liquor Licensing Board, the Chinese community made their discontent known citing that on the 25th of December the liquor licensing board and the police department informed them that they can only open after 6 PM and sell alcoholic beverages.

 

When 6:00pm arrived they opened their stores, only to find police forcing them to close down their businesses. They were told that this is a new law that was just being enforced on Christmas Day citing that all businesses should be closed all day, not only up until 6:00pm as before.

 

The release went on to say that the night of the 25th was also the night of a Christmas Day Event being held by the company who imports Kubuli into Belize “RC Imports”. The event at the Civic Center was allowed to go on and RC Imports was allowed to sell their beers all night long while all the businesses in the whole entire town were forced to close down.


We attempted to get comment on the matter from Mayor of Corozal town, who is a member of the Liquor Licensing Board but it was to no avail. When we contacted Jorge Perez, chairman of the Liquor licensing Board, he informed us that the law that has been in the books ever since but that it was just recently being enforced.
