By BBN Staff: According to reports, the government of Belize has hired the services of another high-end attorney to represent GOB on the Universal Health Services (UHS ) case.
Ben Juratowich, a Queen’s Counsel from British law firm, Freshfield Brauckhaus Deringer will be representing GOB in the upcoming case on March 14, at the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ).
Juratowich is known to represent many governments on major cases.
GOB is seeking to invalidate the request by the Belize Bank Ltd who wants the court to grant them an enforcement order for the $40 million loan since the CCJ had indicated to the bank that they could collect it in November 2017.
That amount has now increased to over $90 million with interest.
