By Ruben Morales Iglesias, Belize City: The case of the wrongful death of Stella Maris teacher Ruth Ferguson will resume in May in the court of Justice Westmin James when a ruling is expected.
Attorney Anthony Sylvestre, who represents the family of Ferguson said that they are seeking compensation for the wrongful death caused by negligence since Ferguson had at least 20 more years of employable income.
Yesterday, March 4, 2021, eight witnesses testified before Justice Westmin James.
Ferguson died while under police custody.
Two police constables arrested her at the Stella Maris on a committal warrant and were taking her by bus to the Police Headquarters on Raccoon Street, but they never made it. Ferguson reportedly got ill on the way and the officers rushed her to the Belize Medical Associates NHI Clinic at the corner of Regent Street and Rectory Lane, near St. John’s Cathedral, for emergency medical attention. However, Ferguson died at the clinic a short while later.
