By BBN Staff: Jose Aberlardo Mai, the People’s United Party (PUP) Area Representative in Orange Walk South, has been handed an estimated quarter million dollar fine from the Supreme Court of Belize.
Yesterday Supreme Court Justice Courtney Abel ruled that Mai should be held responsible for the death of Trial Farm resident, Julia Arana.
As we had previously reported, in April 2016 Arana was knocked down by a vehicle being driven by Mai.
Two months later she succumbed to her injuries.
Her son, career cyclist Nissan Arana, brought a claim against Mai which ended yesterday when Justice Abel ordered that he pay the Arana family an estimated quarter million dollars for damages.
However, this matter is not yet over as either parties have over the next 21 days to file an appeal against the ruling.
