Land controversy in Las Flores, Belmopan

Residents of Las Flores, Belmopan

Monday, September 4, 2017. Residents of the Las Flores area of Belmopan are up in arms after the City Council sold off a piece of land they were hoping would be used for expansion of the school.

The Belmopan City Council sold the piece of land to a private individual and now the residents want answers.

They held a meeting on Sunday in their community and expected Mayor Khalid Belisle to be present to give them some answers.

But Mayor Belisle did not attend the meeting.

And so the parents today intended to keep their children out of classes as a form of demonstration.

But the police showed up and explained to the residents that any sort of public demonstrations requires a permit, which they clearly did not obtain from the Police Department.

PGTV will continue to monitor this developing story.
