There is another complaint to report tonight of Lands Department. The latest complaint was made to us today by Douglas Village resident Laurio Alamilla. Alamilla says that he was granted a parcel of land in an area immediately behind San Juan Village in Orange Walk.


According to Alamilla, he had started making payments for the property but when government changed in 2008, his money was rejected by the new administrators of the Lands Department. Today, he still holds the papers to that land but the parcel itself has seemingly been set aside as a quarry. Alamilla says he has tried to address the problem even with the police but has been unable to get any assistance.

“Es un pedazo pues que me dieron por el PUP que era de Petro Jam pero el gobierno lo arreglo y nos lo dieron por cinco acres a varias personas entonces hicimos el primer pago y ya y perdió el PUP y no aceptaron más pagos entonces estos terrenos están bajo de un injunction que ellos no lo pueden tocar entonces vino esta persona y todo esto tenia cana y vino esta persona y ve como me dejo mi terreno y yo vine a hablar con él y me dice que yo soy el gobierno pero dejaron como por dos semanas y volvieron a empezar ahorita entonces yo volví a venir y les dije yo ya no soy el gobierno, por favor dejen de trabajar mi terreno porque yo tengo un papel adonde tengo recibo de esto y me dijo que esto es del gobierno y ellos son el gobierno. Por lo menos me debían de venir a pedir permiso a quedar de un de acuerdo y no tocar mi canal.”

“Mire el tamañito como esta. Esto ya estaba listo para cortar porque estos son los primeros cortes que yo hago y me llevaron parte de la caña como un viaje de cana me llevaron no es bastante pero es algo como somos pobres.”

Alamilla is receiving support from others who have also been facing similar problems as they have had their land allegedly taken from them by the UDP administration as well. Abelino Tuyub says he has also lost money for land that was also taken from him.

“Yo tengo perdido en esos terrenos que dieron allí de casa pero como ellos dicen que ellos son el gobierno nosotros no estamos en poder porque yo tengo perdido un terreno en San Jose que me costó tres mil dólares me mandaron una carta de un nombre diferente y yo le dije que yo no soy el dueño del terreno en esa carta y yo vine con este amigo y él me está diciendo que estos terrenos sea como sea se le debe de respetar a cualquiera persona sea hasta al gobierno, si ellos querían romper aquí le vieran pedido permiso porque yo creo que ellos está abusando porque no hay gobierno están de campaña.”


We tried to contact the Lads Department but were unable to reach anyone. We will follow the case with the Lands Department.
