BACOL connects with the Caribbean

Policyholder registration on-going as sensitisation spreads across the region

Legal Action Begins

The long-awaited launch of the legal action to recover fair and just compensation on behalf of policyholders of British American Insurance Company Limited in seven Caribbean countries, is well under way, and BACOL is reaching out to potential beneficiaries to explain why this legal action is the best option for the recovery of their investments.

The lawsuit was filed by BACOL’s attorneys on July 13th, 2021, at the Caribbean Court of Justice in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. BACOL held an official media launch to formally announce the beginning of legal proceedings, on Monday, July 26th, and this was followed by a series of four town hall meetings for policyholders in the Caribbean and the diaspora.

Since then, registration of policyholders has continued a pace, to ensure that as many eligible policyholders and/or their beneficiaries are signed up to be represented by BACOL.
