Pickstock Representative Dismisses Suit as “Politics”

Pickstock Area Representative Wilfred Elrington, whose brainchild is the Samuel Haynes Institute, says the unfortunate incident is being used as a political football.  He dismissed the claim altogether.

“There has been a lawsuit filed against several entities, including the Samuel Haynes Institute, regarding an incident earlier this year in which a wrought iron gate here at the institute fell on a toddler, an infant who was in the yard or the compound.  As someone who is directly involved in everything that happens here in the institute, what are your thoughts on this claim being brought against Samuel Haynes [Institute] and the contractor and the Attorney General’s Ministry?”

“Regretfully Isani, because the Samuel Haynes Institute is associated with me people seem to think that this is an ideal issue to be made a political football of.  I can tell you however, that the attorney who is handling the case ought not to be paid for what he is doing because he is certainly barking up the wrong tree.  That’s all I will say.  He’s certainly not worth whatever they are paying him because he is barking up the wrong tree.  I will say no more.”

 

The suit was filed on September twenty-eighth and it is expected that the matter will come up for case management sometime in November.
