PRESS RELEASE - BPP statement on the rumoured destruction of rice
Belmopan | January 8th, 2016
The Belize Progressive Party (BPP) vehemently objects to any assertion or intention by the Government of Belize, to destroy the containers of rice that have been a point of contention over the past several weeks.
Belizeans from all corners of this nation who are facing economic hardships could certainly benefit from the distribution of this staple, via a coordinated and humanitarian effort. Undoubtedly, there are non-governmental organisations that can aid the distribution.
We therefore call on Prime Minister Dean Oliver Barrow to reconsider any such move to lay waste to the shipments of rice.
