lisaKeeping in line with the topic of the Sarstoon, Senator Lisa Shoman sent a formal letter to Minister of Foreign Affairs Wilfred Elrington today in which she requests that government provide her a copy of the OAS report that was received by government last week surrounding the Belize Territorial Volunteers’ trip to the Sarstoon Island on August 16th. She also requested a copy of the protest note that was sent to the Guatemalan government last week. Senator Shoman made the request on behalf of the leader of the opposition PUP on the Bipartisan Commission of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs which deals with the Guatemalan claim over Belizean territory. In closing, the Senator offers her time to the Minister of Foreign Affairs to provide him with a full, quote, “firsthand brief of the unwarranted and intolerable actions taken in internal Belizean waters on the Sarstoon River on August 16th 2015,” unquote. She further expressed that she expects the minister to make himself available for such a briefing and a full and frank exchange of views on the matter.
