fishermenOfficial information reaching our newsroom today is that the 8 Belizean fishermen who were detained by the Guatemalan Navy on Friday May 27th are back in Belize. The men were deported from Guatemala sometime last night and according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the group made their way back to Belize by road.


Sometime around noon last Friday, the eight Belizeans were detained by the Guatemalan Navy after they were found disembarking from their vessel at the Punta Manabique Beach, Dept. of Izabal, Guatemala.


According to reports given by GOB at the time, seven of the eight individuals were in possession of Belizean fishing licenses; however, they were unable to present neither a boat registration nor a Guatemalan port authorization document known as ‘zarpe’, resulting in their apprehension and transportation to Guatemala City for processing after being handed over to the Guatemalan Immigration by the Navy.
