Roberts Grove former director court ordered to pay millions to the company

Robert’s Grove Beach Resort has won a Supreme Court Case  that Robert’s Grove, Ltd (RGL) filed in the Supreme Court of Belize against director Jean-­‐Marc Tasse. That litigation was filed on September 16, 2014. Claim No. 513 2014 alleged that Jean-­‐Marc Tasse had been using The Resort as his own personal piggy bank, withdrawing funds for his personal benefit and using and disposing of its property arbitrarily and for his own gain. After almost 2 years of litigation and delays the Supreme Court made a ruling on May 20, 2016. The 30 page Judgment rules in favor of the Claimant (Roberts Grove) with millions awarded to Robert’s Grove in damages: over 1.1 milion dollars in cash, a marina lot/house at Roberts Grove, a Boat, 5 years of fraudulent personal credit card charges and attorney fees.bThe Supreme Court Judgment concludes in section 68, “All of this leads me to the inevitable conclusion that the accounts of this company have been manipulated. Mr. Tasse, as a director, owed a fiduciary duty to RGL. When he used RGL’s funds for his own benefit he breached that fiduciary duty and caused devastating loss to RGL. He must make good that resulting loss.”  A statement from Roberts Grove says that Jean-Marc Tasse has been physically banned from RG for over a year now based on a Supreme Court approved Board meeting. Additionally he was removed from all operations and involvement of RGL. Robert’s Grove is continuing operations with Trust Hospitality as the management company since November 2015vlcsnap-2016-06-01-10h21m57s069vlcsnap-2016-06-01-10h21m54s371
