Compensation for Jamaican drivers with tainted fuel could be difficultDecember 30, 2015
Drivers in Jamaica who suffered damage to their vehicles due to contaminated fuel could have some trouble getting compensation for their losses. The Jamaica Gasoline Retailers Association (JGRA) says this is because many drivers are unable to prove when and where they purchased this fuel in order to be compensated. On Tuesday, it was announced that 17 gas stations were found to be selling contaminated fuel. The JGRA’s President Leonard Green says that the problem was more complicated because it’s possible that the source of the fuel may also be contaminated. Meanwhile, the opposition Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) is demanding answers. Opposition Spokesman on Energy, Robert Montague, wants Energy Minister Phillip Paulwell to make the distribution source public. Montague claims that this was a “cover-up”, demanding that Paulwell name the gas distributor. The Opposition has also declared that service station operators should not bear the brunt of the problem.
