The Government of Belize has acceded to the Hague Convention with regard to the service of judicial and extrajudicial documents overseas.
The Senate last Tuesday passed a Resolution to this effect following an Instrument of Accession signed by Hon. Wilfred Elrington, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, according to an official press release on the matter.
The Convention applies in all cases in civil or commercial matters, where there is occasion to transmit a judicial or extrajudicial document for service abroad.
Solicitor General of Belize, Oscar Ramjeet, told The Reporter that the adoption creates the appropriate means to ensure that these documents are served abroad, but they must be brought to the notice of the addressee in sufficient time.
