Gail Williams

Following the eruptions of the illegally dug natural gas well in the Diamond Housing Scheme, on the East Bank of Demerara (EBD), a neighbouring resident is suing her insurance company for in excess of $35 million, which she says it refuses to pay as coverage for damage to her house.

Gail Williams claims that her Lot 1199 Section ‘A’ Great Diamond, EBD property, which has been rendered uninhabitable because of the repeated explosions from the well, is covered under her insurance policy with the Guyana and Trinidad Mutual Fire Insurance Company Limited (GTM), though the company is claiming otherwise.
