Illegal logging in the south or concessions?

Is illegal logging occurring in the south again or has a company been given logging concessions? Our colleagues at PGTV say they have been receiving numerous complaints of  heavy logging in the Boom Creek area.  Pictures of trucks with Belmopan license plates hauling off logwood were taken and sent to the media. Unconfirmed reports are that a company has been given two logging concessions in the Boom Creek Area.  However, the community members say that if this is true, it was done without their knowledge. By law , the Mayan communities of these areas must be consulted  before logging concessions are given to any company.
