As you heard at the top of the newscast GOB has revoked the SI implemented in the Sarstoon that restricted movements through the area. So…. will the PUP move forward with their claim against the Sarstoon Law in court even though it was rescinded?  According to Leader of the Opposition, Hon. John Briceno, the People’s United Party will be moving full steam ahead with the constitutional challenge. 


According to Honorable Briceno, the P.U.P.’s legal team is proceeding with the suit in an effort to provide guidance to this current government and others to come, from the court as to when it is accurate for a law of this nature to be implemented.

“We do plan to go through the law suits as what our legal advisor pointed out that it is very important for which ever government to know how far they can go with this which is almost like the preventative detention that they try to do remember that when they wanted to amend the constitution when Belizeans were vehemently against the likewise in this case it is almost like that, it is important for the courts to make a ruling to see if it is something that it is allowed within the constitution in the laws of Belize so it is important for us for the government and future governments to see how far they can go.”
