JGRA seeking legal advice after members' pumps ordered closed

Published:Monday | January 4, 2016 | 1:16 PM

President of the Jamaica Gasolene Retailers Association (JGRA), Leonard Green, says eight of the 17 sites whose pumps were ordered closed last week, were JGRA members.

Last week the JGRA President maintained that the association’s members were unaffected by the bad gas saga.

This morning, he acknowledged that some of his members had been affected.

Following news that Rubis’ main petrol storage facility is contaminated, Green says the association has been meeting with lawyers with a view to seeking compensation.

He says a meeting will be held today with the gas retailers to determine what steps will be taken.

However, Green notes that some of the association's members are cautious about taking legal action against their marketing companies.
