By BBN Staff: In the next few days, the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) will hear two cases from Belize.
On Tuesday the court will hear a challenge by Dean Boyce, British Caribbean Bank Ltd and Lord Michael Ashcroft on a decision of the Belize Judicial and Legal Services Commission (JLSC) which had, “decline to move forward with a complaint against a judge.”
The claimants are of the view that the JLSC should determine whether a Belizean Justice of Appeal should be investigated for misbehavior and “excessive delays in the delivery of judgments” while he was a judge of the Supreme Court.
That Justice is Samuel Awich.
And on Friday, the CCJ will hear a case involving Titan International Securities.
It is challenging a decision by the Court of Appeal of Belize to set aside an award of US $4.46 million in compensatory damages.
The Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal in Belize have ruled that a search and seizure of Titan’s premises was conducted in an unreasonable and excessive manner.
While these courts initially ruled that the company’s constitutional rights had been breached, the Court of Appeal was of the view that the company did not prove losses were suffered as a result of the breach.
Additionally, the company is also challenging the constitutionality of a section of the Mutual Legal Assistance and International Cooperation Act.
The search of the company occurred at the Matalon Business Center office on Coney Drive in 2014.
The owners of the company are Bahamian nationals, Kelvin Leach and Rohn Knowles.
