Foul play ruled out in Ezroy Millwood's death

Patrick Bailey, Attorney for Ezroy Millwood

The police have ruled out foul play in the death of  National Transport Co-operative Society, NTCS head, Ezroy Millwood.

Mr. Millwood was found dead about 3:30 Saturday morning at his home in Lees Flat, Upper St Andrew.

 He was 70 years old.

Police investigators who went to the scene believe Mr. Millwood died from natural causes as there were no signs of a break-in or violence.

A post mortem has been ordered into the death.

Up to the time of his death, Mr. Millwood was embroiled in a longstanding legal battle with the Government following its decision in 2001 to terminate the 10-year licence of the NTCS to operate in the Kingston Metropolitan Region.

The UK based Privy Council had awarded the NTCS close to two billion dollars in the matter.

However the government  is contesting the decisions by the appellate court on December 20, 2010; September 30, 2011 and March 9 of this year in relation to the NTCS award, after the case was sent back by the Privy Council on November 26, 2009 to be dealt with by the Court of Appeal. 

Among the Government's grouses is the manner in which the award to the NTCS was arrived at by the appellate court.

UNDER STRESS

Millwood and the NTCS had been represented throughout his many court battles over the award by Patrick Bailey, noted attorney at law.

Responding to news of his client's passing, Bailey said the pressure of his legal battles had taken a toll on him.

"I know he was under a lot of stress; he's been fighting his lawsuit for very many years. He was under doctor's treatment" he said; adding his deep regret at this turn of events.
