Tourists stricken with food-poisoning get compensated

Santo Domingo.– Nearly a thousand British tourists stricken with food-poisoning while vacationing at the Bahia Principe Rio San Juan hotel in 2007 have been compensated to the tune of over £5.5 million (RD$353 million).

On Wednesday, tour operators First Choice agreed a £1.9 million (RD$120 million) settlement of claims brought by over 409 holidaymakers, including 60 children, who stayed at the hotel located in Puerto Plata in 2007.

The agreement is the latest in a number of settlements previously reached with tour operators Thomas Cook, Thomson, and My Travel with respect to hundreds of other cases of vacationers who claimed to have been afflicted by severe gastric illnesses including Salmonella, Campylobacter and Shigella.
