”Adjacency Zone” Prensa Libre

Prensa Libre has released video shot at the Belize Border at Benque Viejo/Melchor  in what they call the “Adjacency Zone” The accompanying article titled “Belizean Guards intimidate Guatemalans” says that In the video you can be see when two Border Patrol agents in the neighboring country approach the Guatemalans who were waiting for tourists to offer their taxi service, guidance and exchange of dollars but are then intimidated to cross into the Belizean side.”. But as we correlate the location where the men were standing with Google map, it  is clear that the men are within an area that is clearly inside Belize territory.  In the video the police and border management personel were moving the guatemalan men from soliciting tourists from beside the OAS Building. Again as the google map clearly shows, the OAS building and parking lot are inside Belize. The border line falls over the OIRSA spray zone which his at least 100 feet away . vlcsnap-2016-06-06-12h08m30s624 vlcsnap-2016-06-06-12h08m38s496 vlcsnap-2016-06-06-12h08m52s303 - Copy vlcsnap-2016-06-06-12h08m58s040 - Copy
