Note - The Court of Appeal of Belize later limited the liability of the owners of the MS Westerhaven based on application of the Convention on Limitation of Liability in Maritime Claims (LLMC Convention) .  Although the lower court found the ship owners’ liability to be BZ$11,510,000, the Court of Appeals found that the Convention limited the liability to US$2,009,347 (based on the size of the ship involved).  See:
