By BBN Staff: Despite the Caribbean Court of Justice ruling to the contrary, Wilfred Elrington maintains that he never conducted any land transfers for the company Progresso Heights Limited.
Elrington went back to court this week, asking the CCJ not to declare that the land titles involved in his transactions with Progresso Heights had been lost. He also opposed that new land titles be issued to his former business partners, Lawrence and Adam Schneider.
“I also maintain that no such evidence was before the court, I maintain that. The court found differently, but an examination of the record will show that in fact, no contract was entered into between me and the other side, and we have evidence in court that can establish that, “Elrington said.
The court denied his motion and the Registrar of Lands will publish notices for three consecutive weeks, requesting that whoever has the documents come forward with them. If no one produces them the Registrar will cancel the old certificates and issue new ones to Schneider’s attorney, the Law Firm of Courtenay Coye LLC for delivery.
Elrington said that his loss in court reflects flaws in the judicial system, but that he must go with the court’s decision.
The case goes back 7 years, when the Schneiders sued Elrington with respect to land transactions valued at $641,000. The Schniders had deposited money in Elrington’s account but he never handed over the titles for eight of the 16 parcels of land in Progresso Village in the Corozal District.
