“Coming Attractions” after U.S. “Crowfoot” Judgment

Nigel Hawke

It hasn’t got much notice in Belize, but the U.S. District Court based in Washington, D.C., a week ago on Monday a U.S. district court judge ordered that the Bank can seize property owned by the government of Belize “in the jurisdictions where such attachment or execution is appropriate.” Will it do so, and where? Neither side seemed willing to say much today.

 

Nigel Hawke, Solicitor General

“I will reserve my comment in relation to that. To be fair, until I have looked at that properly – because at the time that judgment came out, we would have been at the C.C.J. at that time, we just got back on Friday – I’ll reserve my comment on that matter for another occasion.”

“Is the “Ashcroft Alliance” moving to crowfoot any assets so that the award is in fact paid given that it is an enforcement order?”

Reporter #2

“And where would those assets be seized, in the U.S. or Belize?”

 

Eamon Courtenay, Attorney for Belize Bank Limited

“Tune in for coming attractions.”
