Viewers may recall that in August of this year, the Belize Territorial Volunteers made their last historic visit by actually setting foot on the Sarstoon Island and planting a Belizean Flag as a symbolic gesture to our sovereignty. Well tonight, we have gotten wind that the planted Belizean Flag has been removed but at the hands of the Guatemalan Forces. Today, a post on social media made by a credible source, flared public discussion surrounding the issue. We spoke to leader of the BTV, Wil Meheia for clarification…..

“I am disappointed in this government in that the Guatemalans bully the military and we still stay there and still don’t file any letter of protest to the UN nor to the OAS it just feels that we are being bullied, back in August when they chased the media and I don’t care what General Jones what’s to say, the fact is that they chased the media boat, you know I have friends in the BDF that I won’t reveal their names but who was on the boat when the boat was chased out of the Sarstoon so I could like confirm that the boat was actually chased out of the Sarstoon and actually the BDF still have to check with the Guatemalans for permission to go up the Sarstoon it is time for us as Belizeans to stand up and if the government doesn’t want to stand I call on all Belizeans to stand up.”

Meheia says the Belize Territorial Volunteers are planning an excursion soon after the General elections. Of note, since late February of this year, incidents have taken place at the mouth of the Sarstoon River around Sarstoon Island which has driven up the tension between elements of the Guatemalan military/navy, on the one hand, and the Belize Territorial Volunteers and the Belize Coast Guard, on the other.
