CCJ dismisses Titan’s case

The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) today dismissed a claim by Titan International Securities Inc (Titan) for four million four hundred and sixty thousand US dollars in damages.  The claim for damages came following a search and seizure operation conducted at its offices in September 2014. The owners of Titan International Securities, Bahamians Rohn Knowles and Kelvin Leach sued the Government of Belize for closing down their business. In September 2014, in collaboration with the US Government Belizean authorities cleaned out their offices at the Matalon Building. Justice Courtney Abel ruled in their favor, awarding them 8.8 million dollars in compensatory damages. The Government disagreed with the ruling and appealed it. The Court of Appeal ruled that indeed the search was excessive, but set aside the 8.8 million dollar judgement against the Government. Thereafter, the owners who were represented by Eamon Courtenay appealed to the CCJ.
