Belize government muzzles TV station

The main opposition Peoples United Party (PUP) in Belize as well as a smaller group, the Vision Inspired by the People (VIP), have come out strongly against a government decision to boycott Belizes largest television station, Great Belize Television which broadcasts on channel 5.

In an unprecedented move, the government announced on Tuesday following a cabinet meeting that: effective immediately, the Government of Belize is suspending normal relations with Channel 5 and Great Belize Productions. It means that no government employee or minister of government will give any interviews to the station or appear on any programme produced by Great Belize Productions.

The government also claims that Channel 5 has violated the terms of its license by not airing the government produced current affairs programme Belmopan Weekly, a claim the station has refuted.
