There is a strange case to report tonight involving a group of Romanians who were intercepted by the Police travelling north on the Phillip Goldson Highway on Friday morning. Sources tell us that Corozal Police, responding to a tip-off about strange immigrants moving through the country, set up an interception point at the Libertad junction. As suspected, eight Romanians travelling in two separate taxi vehicles with Benque Viejo Del Carmen license plates were seen and stopped. Our information was that when the Police searched through their documents, they were not satisfied that all was in order, they called in Immigration officials. But this is where things get a bit strange. The Police cannot say what happened with the visitors, because it turned into an Immigration matter. As for Immigration officials, when we contacted the Northern Border office, no one was able to share any info since their supervisor was not in office today.
We note that Romanian nationals as well as those of other European Union countries do not require visas to visit Belize.
We also note that the Police Department has been placed on high alert as there have been cases of human trafficking on our highways.
