"The Newspaper That Cares And Dares To Bring Out The Truth"-



Friday, April 16, 2010:
One of two bandits was killed
as they attempted to rob
passengers onboard a commuter
bus heading to Benque Viejo
Town on Sunday, April 11, 2010.
It was supposed to be a
routine daily run for a D&E bus
from Belize City to Benque
Viejo Town that day. The bus
departed Belize City at 4:00 pm
arriving at the bus stop in San
Ignacio at around 7:00 pm. Two
male persons of Hispanic
descent were among several
passengers boarding the bus on
its final stop in Benque Viejo
Town. As the passengers
boarded, the two male persons
sat in one of the seats at the back
of the bus.
About 15 minutes after

deserving students. Eight of the
scholarship recipients are
enrolled in high school and two
are at the university level. In
order to qualify, a student must
have an 85% grade point
average in all subjects. In order
to keep that scholarship, the
student must maintain a 3.0

A recipient is disqualified when
the grades fall below the
required standard. However, at
the request of the student,
the scholarship can be

Los Angeles and New York.
On the ocassion of the visit to
New York City many Belizeans
asked questions about; the
Belize Guatemalan dispute,
prosecuting former ministers of
government, crime, gangs, dual
citizens rights, proxy voting,
land and housing programs,
obtaining passports and other
documentation, Counselor

Prime Ministerial Delegation In Chicago This Weekend

This money was later used by the
former Prime Minister Said
Musa to pay off the debt of
a private hospital namely
Universal Health Services with
the Belize Bank Limited.
Universal Health Services,
which has since been renamed
Belize Health Partners, is an
expensive medical institution in
Belize that average Belizean
families cannot afford. It
therefore caters mostly for the
rich people in the country.
Several members of the Musa
cabinet were against this
decision but Musa nonetheless
proceeded with using the money
to settle this private debt.
Foreign Affairs Minister, Hon.
Wilfred Elrington was brief in
his remarks. He spent most of
his time speaking about
government's plans to deal with
Guatemala's claim to Belizean
Shortly after Prime Minister
Barrow's return to Belize from
the trip to New York, former
Prime Minister Said Musa and
his Housing Minister Ralph
Fonseca were both indicted on
theft charges related to the
housing grant from Venezuela.
Even before Musa and
Fonseca were arrested, the

Government of Belize was able
to successfully secure the return
of the Venezuelan money to
government's coffers. The
money is currently being
distributed to provide housing
assistance to the poor in every
political constituency including
those controlled by PUP
Also indicted was former
Health Minister Jose Coye for
some questionable land dea.
This was the first time in
Belize's history that any former
Minister of government was ever
indicted for crimes committed
while they were in office.
Belizeans excitedly await the
outcome of all this drama but in
the end all three former
ministers were acquitted, on
technicalities, of all charges.
Belize's Director of Public
Prosecution, equivalent to a US
District Attorney, expressed an
intention of appeal the acquittals
of Said Musa and Ralph Fonseca
but to date there is no
further information on the appeal
process. If the appeal is not
executed within a specified time,
the process will be statutes
barred and these men will be free
forever and the issue will be
The Foreign Affairs Minister

went full speed ahead in
negotiations with the Guatema-
lans and a simultaneous
referendum is to be held in both
of countries to give citizens the
opportunity to decide if they
want the dispute to be heard by
the International Court of Justice
While this process is
underway, Guatemalans con-
tinue to encroach on Belizean's
territory at will as if Belize
belongs to them. This situation
has added more fuel to the fire
and increasing tensions along the
Belize Guatemalan border.
There was also an attempt to
amend Article-7 to the Belize
Constitution thereby granting
Belizeans with Dual Citizenship
the right to run for public office
while retaining their Dual
Citizenships. This proposed
amendment was abruptly
withdrawn. Included in the set
of amendments was one to
change the final court of appeals
from the Privy Council in
London to the Caribbean Court
of Justice (CCJ) and to give the
Prime Minister the authority to
appoint the Attorney General
from the private sector without
that individual becoming a
member of the Legislative

Those amendments sailed
easily through the House of
Representatives by a party line
vote of 25-6. The were later
approved by the Senate and
signed into law by the Governor
General of Belize Sir Colville
Much to the disappointment
of the opposition People's
United Party, the Privy Council
recently ruled that the current
government does not need a
referendum by the Belizean
people to amend the Belize
The Prime Minister Dean
Barrow applauded the court's
decision as it now vests him
with the authority to return the
Dual Citizenship amendment to
the House of Representatives
and have it passed so that it can
benefit Belizean Americans who
are desirous of retiring in the
land of their birth..
Those of us living overseas,
especially in the United States of
America, will never forget that
it was the People's United Party
that was against those of us with
Dual Citizenships. They are
against giving us the right to run
for office in our country of
birth because we possess dual
The People's United Party has
a history of granting amnesty
to Guatemalans, Salvadorans,
Koreans, Chinese, Taiwanese
and others but have no time to
address the needs and concerns
of native Belizeans. Our last
hope therefore rests in the hands
of the current government.
The PUP act as if they are an-
gry with us for coming to the
United States, to improve our
lives, further educate ourselves,
join our families, increase our
financial reserves and improve
our living conditions so that we
can help our families in Belize
and help to develop our country.
After ten years of PUP
mismanagement they were
booted out of government.
We need to become more
proactive in getting involve in
our country's affairs because
America is not looking like the
same country it was when we
first arrived. Most Belizeans
would prefer to return home if
their economic circumstances
were better in their homeland
and some are thinking about
returning home especially since
America is going through these
economically challenging times.

Three old men are sitting on the
porch of a retirement home near the
seaside in Belize City.
The first says, "Fellas, Igot real
problems. I'm seventy years old.
Every morning at seven o 'clock I
get up and Itry to urinate. All day
long Itry to urinate. They give me
all kinds of medicine but nothing
The second old man says, "You

eighty years old. Every morning
at 8:00 I get up and try to move
my bowels. I try all day long. They
give me all kinds of stuff but
nothing helps."
Finally the third old man speaks
up, "Fellas: I'm ninety years old.
Every morning at 7:00 sharp I
urinate. Every morning at 8:00
I move my bowels. Every
morning at 9:00 sharp I wake

The Environment Fitting The Expression

When Mr. Gomez went to get his
driver's license renewed, the little
office downstairs of the Town Hall
was packed.
The line inched along for almost
an hour until the man ahead of Mr.
Gomez finally got his license.
I was now Mr. Gomez' turn and
he posed for his photo, he sighed
the card and when the clerk handed
him the laminated drivers' permits,

he comments to the clerk, "I was
standing in line so long, I ended
up looking pretty grouchy in this
The clerk looked at his picture
closely and said "It's okay," she
reassured Mr. Gomez "That's
exactly how you're going to
look when our traffic wardens
roaming the streets give you a
ticket out there."

Citrus Products of Belize Ltd. (CPBL) forwarded to the Citrus Growers Association (CGA) on April 8th, 2010 a
revised Fruit Price Submission, for the price to be paid to citrus growers, for oranges delivered to the factories, as per
the 2001 Citrus Price Formula (the Price Formula).

The Price Formula is a long standing agreement that was reached between the CGA and Del Oro Belize Ltd. (now
CPBL), on September 14th, 2001. It is used to determine the payment for both oranges and grapefruits delivered by
citrus growers to the processing facilities.

The Price Formula provides for the first payment to growers for oranges delivered to be determined by the six-month
average future prices for frozen concentrated orange juice (FCOJ) on the New York Board of Trade (NYBOT). The
futures market of the NYBOT is a speculative market in which options for FCOJ and other commodities are traded on
commodity prices for future delivery periods. The futures market is a volatile market in which prices change daily
dependent upon the views that traders hold of the future market prices for these commodities. This volatility is
evidenced by the fall in the average six months futures price for FCOJ from US$1.5363 per p/s on 15th March 2010 to
US$1.3558 per p/s on April 6th, 2010 and then on April 8th, 2010 it averaged US$1.287 per p/s.

Commodities, however, are sold at market prices at the date of sale. This selling price can be lower or higher than
future prices dependent on Market trend. Market prices normally follow the trend of the futures market but with a
time lag. It is therefore not uncommon for market prices to be between ten to fifteen percent higher or lower than
futures prices. This is why the Price Formula provides that subsequent price submissions after the first submission is
based upon a combination of actual contracted prices and the six-month average future prices for FCOJ in relation to
the uncontracted stock. The Price Formula provides for an automatic price review to take place at any time when the
future price for FCOJ changes by more than ten percent.

CGA requested, on March 15th, 2010, a revised Fruit Price Submission for oranges as per the Price Formula, since the
futures price for FCOJ was at US$1.5363 per p/s or 10.23 percent greater than the futures price for FCOJ under the
existing price submission sent on December 22nd, 2009 when the price was at US$1.3955 per p/s. On March 18th,
2010, CPBL forwarded to CGA, the revised price submission for oranges calculated in accordance with the Price
Formula. This new fruit price submission reflected a combination of actual Sales contract plus the value of uncontracted
stocks of approximately 4.9 millions p/s which was valued using the average six months futures price for FCOJ of
US$1.5363 per p/s. Based upon the Price Formula the new estimated final price for orange fruits was Bz$1.5227 per p/
s, or Bz$0.0851 per p/s lower than the previous Fruit Price Submission. CPBL advised CGA that although it had the
right to deduct Bz$0.0550 per p/s (i.e. 65% x $0.0851) from the next payment to growers, it would fore deductions at
that time and would wait until the second fruit price submission, due in June 2010, as per the Price Formula Agreement
to further assess the situation.

It is important for growers to note that on April 8th, 2010, CPBL submitted to the CGA, a revised fruit price
submission in accordance with the Price Formula since the futures price for FCOJ on the NYBOT had fallen beyond
the ten percent threshold, warranting a revised Fruit Price Submission. This new Fruit Price Submission showed a
further decline in the estimated fruit price of Bz$0.1316 per p/s. This means that growers have been overpaid by
Bz$0.0855 (i.e. 65% x $0.1316) per p/s. This should be deducted from the next fruit payment. However, CPBL has, for
the second time, offered to forego such deductions and wait until the second submission due in June 2010.

CPBL notes that it is not unusual for the final audited price to growers to be lower than the initial fruit price submission
since the final price submission reflects all sales contract and uncontracted carried forward stocks that are valued
using the average six months future for FCOJ.

Orange growers may recall that as recent as the crop year 2003-2004, growers were overpaid $0.057 per p/s as the final
price was lower than the price paid to growers using the average six months future price. In this case, CGA agreed
with CPBL, as stated in the CGA Minutes of the 37th AGM of the CGA held in June 2005 for the overpayment to be
treated as an interest free advance to growers, to be deducted from fruit payment due in the next crop year.

It must be noted that the agreement on the Price Formula also provides for the settlement of disputes arising from the
implementation of the Formula.

Because of past experiences and the fact that CPBL wishes to pay farmers the best possible price and pay a second and
final payment to all growers that CPBL see it prudent to issue this release. Grower's want a second and final payment
and CPBL wants also to be able to do this.

From The Prospective

Of A Female Artist

WINBelize WINdows
By: Nehanda Higinio
Four and a half years ago when
I found out that I would be
having a baby, I started doing
some soul searching. Art was the
only avenue that I saw as the
perfect language to express what
I was going through.
It was an intimate world. A
world that reassured, celebrated
and defended my identity both
new and old. I was manifesting
my new self.
I showed some of my art
pieces to some close friends and
they all encouraged me to look
into this hobby as a profession.
I was reluctant to do so when I
discovered that 90% of artists in
Belize are men.
I respect all my colleagues
dearly. So this is not to bash any
of them. But from what I have
seen, the male perspective on art
is a lot different.
I came into the art industry
from my heart, expressing things
that affect me as a woman,
mother, lover, sister and many
other gender based roles. I
often find myself being the voice

of those women who have none
or have not yet found theirs. So
this isn't just about making
money, or making a name for
myself, or provoking my 78 year
old grandmother with a naked
Black Virgin Mary. This is about
telling the truth and creating a
level of sensitivity towards
women that have been used as
"the most expressive art form".
My intention is to encourage
the countless female artists who
are studying nursing, teaching,
accounting, while spending
countless nights hunched over
a piece of paper writing,
painting or sketching their hearts
out. Do not run away from your
true selves. Take a step outside
the box and be yourself.
We few female artists need
you to join, help make a voice
for all women. Be brave and
speak out, paint out, sketch out.

Hugo Chavez cries sabotage, while his critics just cry 'Bananas'

Venezuelan authorities arrested
eight Colombians and accuse
them of subversive acts
Rory Caroll in Caracas, The
Observer, Sunday 11 April 2010
Nation-wide blackouts and
rationing have eroded Hugo
ChAvez's popularity.
It sounded like a Frederick
Forsyth plot transplanted to South
America: Colombian spies in league
with the US infiltrated Venezuela to
sabotage the electricity supply, sow
chaos and topple President Hugo
ChAvez. Venezuelan authorities
arrested eight Colombians last week
and accused them of subversive
acts against the country's energy
infrastructure. They allegedly
had photographs of electricity sub-
stations, transmission systems and
"The Colombian government
will have to explain this," Chavez
said during a televised cabinet
meeting. "Some of them had
Colombian army ID cards. One of
them worked as a medic in the
Colombian army, then went to
live in Canada, then came
to Barinitas. Very strange
The arrests six were detained
in the small town of Barinitas and
two in the state ofAragua have

President Hugo Chavez
reignited tensions between the
Andean neighbours in the run-up to
next month's presidential election
in Colombia. President Alvaro
Uribe, a US ally who regularly
clashes with Venezuela's socialist
leader, responded swiftly: "The
government of Colombia cannot
permit violations of human rights
against its citizens, whether they
live in Colombia or elsewhere."
A less than convincing claim,
given Colombia's grim record on
state-backed death squads.
Chavez also struggled to
convince. An energy crisis triggered
by drought and under-investment
has led to nation-wide blackouts
and rationing, crippling the
economy and eroding Chavez's
popularity. Last week he extended
the electricity emergency for

another 60 days, accusing "coun-
ter-revolutionaries" of exploiting
the crisis by cutting cables, among
other tactics. "Who knows how
many power cuts... have been the
product of sabotage?"
Critics and many ordinary
Venezuelans scoffed and said the
government's latest claim of a plot
seemed something out of Woody
Alien's spoof on tropical despotism,
Bananas. According to relatives,
five of the detained Colombians are

members of a family that has lived
in Venezuela for 17 years and owns
an ice-cream factory. Chavez
said the factory was a "facade",
without elaborating.
He also claims to have thwarted
numerous US-backed assassination
plots against him. The satirical
newspaper Tal Cual reported that
the US state department had a
clandestine section to train
iguanas to sabotage Venezuela's

all die. The assailant with the
grenade proceeded to demand
the conductor's purse. The
conductor, Ricardo Quiroz, 32,
who was seated on the interior
hood of the bus engine, reached
for the purse which was lodged
between the dashboard and the
front windshield and handed it
to him. He then threw the purse
to the one with the gun.
The gunman produced a blue
and red nylon bag into which he
placed the purse as he walked up
to the front of the bus and began
pointing the gun at passengers
ordering them to put their
property into the bag.
Realizing that they were being
robbed, some passenger further
down the aisle began concealing
their property. None of the
assailants wore masks.
As the bus was approaching
the first street light signaling
the entrance into Succotz village,
the assailant with the grenade
ordered the gunman to hurry.
He ordered the driver to open
the door. He walked backwards
and stood on the bottom step of
the bus and this was when a male
passenger stood up, rushed
towards him and stomped him in
the chest. The grenade man fell
out of the slow moving bus.
The same male passenger
rushed towards the gunman who
by this time was in the middle
of the bus, he attacked the
gunman and threw him to the
floor, during the struggle the
gunman pulled the trigger of the
gun he carried and it snapped
at least two or three times. The
passenger stomped on his
arm resulting in the assailant
releasing his grip on the gun.
Other passengers joined in the
attack on the bandit.
A female passenger was seated
in the aisle seat right next to the
spot where the scuffle was

taking place. She reportedly
hopped over several seats and
made her way to the back of the
bus. She opened the back door
and jumped out landing on the
side of the highway. She was
later identified as Lucia Carillo,
19, Belizean student, from
Benque Viejo Town. She was
first transported to the San
Ignacio Town Hospital and later
to the Karl Heusner Memorial
Hospital in Belize City. She is
currently in critical condition at
the Belize Healthcare Partners
Hospital in Belize City. She is a
4th form student attending
Sacred Heart College in San
Ignacio. As she prepares for
graduation in June, Lucia was
reportedly returning to Benque
Viejo Town after visiting a friend
in San Ignacio.
After the attacker was
subdued, the passengers began
shouting for the driver to drive
the bus directly to the police
station in Benque Viejo Town.
The driver sped over all the
speed bumps on the way to the
police station where the injured
and bleeding assailant was
handed over to police. He was
rushed to the San Ignacio Town
Hospital where he was officially
pronounced dead.
The bloody body, clad in a
black T-shirt and bluejeans pants
bore many stab wounds to the
Police found a Guatemalan
birth certificate inside the
pants pocket of the deceased
in the name of Wilson Orlando
Paz Dominguez, born in
Parcela El Jabin, Santa
Lucia Cotzumalguapa in the
Guatemalan province of
While the deceased might have
been born in the interior of
Guatemala, sources close to the
investigation informed of the
likelihood that he resided in the

bordering Guatemalan Suchitan
Barrio which is described as a
criminal nest in Melchor De
Mencos, Peten, Guatemala.
A post mortem examination
conducted by forensic specialist
Dr. Mario Estradabran on
Wednesday, April 14 at the Karl
Heusner Memorial Hospital in
Belize City certified the "cause
of death as exsanguination,
internal and external bleeding
as a consequence of multiple
stab wounds." The body was
subsequently handed over to the
Department of Human Services
and was buried at the Lord Ridge
Cemetery in Belize City also on
Wednesday, April 14.
A female passenger who was
seated next to Lucia Carillo
before she jumped out of the
moving bus recalls that when
the gunman searched her by
pushing his hand in her bosom
all she could recall was that "his
hand was cold as ice. The next
thing she recalls is that the
gunman was attacked first by a
lone passenger and then the girl
sitting next to her was gone.
Benque Viejo police informs
that every piece of property,
including the conductor's purse
and the gun, have been
recovered as they were all
contained in the red and blue
nylon bag retrieved from the
The firearm retrieved from the
assailant is a Taurus brand, point
22 caliber, six shooter revolver
bearing serial number GG93441
with 3 live rounds of ammuni-
tion in the barrel. None of the
three bullets had any firing pin
indentation, thereby leading the
police to assume that either the
trigger was not pulled as
reported or that the gunman

The D&E Bus driver
Ernesto Castillo Jr., 19
might have miscalculated the
revolution of the barrel and
pulled the trigger on three
empty chambers.
The recovered property
included the conductor's purse
containing 788 dollars in cash,
2 cellular telephones, a black
wallet, a black plastic bag, a
silver plated chain, a bead
bracelet, a silver loop earring and
67 dollars in cash.
As they await instructions from
the office of the Director of
Public Prosecutions, Benque
Viejo police are still holding on
to the bag of recovered items.
With the possible threat of the
presence of a grenade in the area
where the bandit was stomped
out of the bus, Benque Viejo
police merely stood guard in the
area until daybreak when, with
assistance from the Belize
Defense Force the area was
thoroughly searched but nothing
was found.
This incident has caused major
concerns for the senior ranks at
the San Ignacio police station
especially amidst allegations
that two persons, one armed with
a grenade and the other with an
illegal firearm, were present in
the center of San Ignacio Town
as they awaited the arrival of the
bus. The local senior command
informs that, as a preventative
measure, officers on patrol will
increase searches on suspicious
persons in these areas of town.
