While on the topic of the voter’s list, Maheia expressed concern that if Belize proceeds to holding a referendum on whether to take Guatemala’s unfounded claim to the International Court of Justice, Belizeans should be concerned that the voters will come out of the same padded list.

“Again this all adds up into pressuring the people to lets go to ICJ to settle this thing and they are saying ICJ is the only way when even within our own government, our own little Belize right here we are talking about discussions and negotiations and mediations before you go to court right so we now that we have not exhausted all the possible negotiations that could happen to settle the dispute even before going to court we should concentrate on that instead on trying to ram it down to the Belizean people throat to go to court because that is what they are doing right now, the confidence that the Guatemalans are like putting in front of their people and saying yes we are going to court and all the other so called friends of Belize they seems that their minds has already been made up that this thing is going to court when we have not exhausted all the other opportunities that exist to settle this Guatemalan dispute before going to court I mean this dispute is over a hundred years old and this crowd in government right now is just saying hey lets go to court, let’s go to court I know right now similarly from the Toledo District where I come from and the disputed area both area representatives as well I believe Mr. Ferguson from the Stann Creek Area Representative for the PUP they have gone on record and saying that they are not in favor in going to court, I just spoke to area representative Oscar Requena over the past weekend and he is not in favor of going to court so I think that what we need to do is continue the negotiations instead of just saying lets go to court.”

The BTV/BPP leader indicated that over the next few days they will announce whether they will take legal action against the Government for its lack of action.
