JUTC offers to pay victims of accident - with conditions attached

Hours after the filing of a petition in the Supreme Court to wind up the Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC), the state-run entity has reportedly made an offer to pay the J$106 million it owes the victims of a 2010 accident. Sean Kinghorn, attorney-at-law, confirmed that a plan has been presented by the JUTC to clear the debt. Mr. Kinghorn relayed that he received the proposal late Wednesday evening. It includes a lump-sum payment and intermittent payments over a specific period. However, there are conditions attached which Mr. Kinghorn finds unusual. Mr. Kinghorn said, “A funny proposal that they would make payment in installments, but that payment would be conditional on them signing a confidentiality agreement before any payments are made over to them,”. He filed the winding up petition ahead of Wednesday’s expiration of the 21 days given to the JUTC to honor the debt owed to his clients arising from a judgment in relation to the crash in which they were injured.
