Mother of Norran Jno Hope, a footballer who died in a freak accident on April 19, 2013, is suing the Dominica Football Association.
According to an article on the Sun Newspaper, Corinthia Jno Hope, in her statement of claim made through her lawyer, David Bruney, said the DFA failed to ensure that the vehicle transporting Jno Hope was subject to a full comprehensive insurance policy.
In her claim, Jno Hope says the DFA created an unsafe system for the vehicle's occupants, at a time when it was responsible for their safety.
But in its defence, the DFA says it cannot be held accountable for an act of God. Court Reporter, Carlisle Jno Baptiste, has more details.
Norran Jno Hope and National Coach Kurt Hector died after the vehicle in which they were travelling, plunged into a chasm that developed on the Pond Casse main road, following heavy rains.
The third occupant on the vehicle, Joselyn Prince, was the lone survivor of that accident.
