The Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal on Monday handed down its decision in a matter involving former parliamentary secretary Jacqueline Theodore and the attorney general of Dominica.
A tribunal had awarded Theodore over $3-million for land belonging to her husband in Calibishie, which the government had acquired for the use of a road some years ago.
Theodore took the issue to the media some time ago when she was not fully compensated by the government, who had also appealed the matter.
Government claimed that Theodore was only entitled to $ 210,737.
However, the court now sitting in Dominica, has awarded Theodore just over EC$1.5 million.
