Hon. Danny Guerrero Mayor of San Pedro Tells the Belize Yacht Club to Follow the Laws of Belize

As regular readers will recall Mr. Sergio Torres of the Belize Yacht Club and Sands Villas tried to stop members of the general public from using the pier at the BYC during daylight hours. This is against the laws of Belize which state that all piers are built on leased public lands. The matter was reported to the police and to several other authority figures including Billy Leslie who is head of the Tour Guides Association. We are delighted to report that the mayor of San Pedro, Danny Guerrerro, correctly upheld the rights of all Belizeans, residents and our special tourist guests to use the pier peaceably. Mr. Torres stands to lose his pier permit if he continues to order his staff to harass people during the day.

This was a great decision by the mayor and shows that the people of San Pedro will not allow their most basic rights to be trodden on by people who think the law is there to be broken.

Billy Leslie was also quoted as saying.If the Belize Yacht Club say their dock is under repair the none can use it and if they make exceptions then the BYC will be required by law to remove the dock from its current location.

Imagine a yacht club without a dock……………………………………………………………………..
