Bar Association corrects assumptions of Attorney General

The Bar Association was among the first to come out against the original version of the proposed ninth amendment. When the Council of Churches intervened and convinced the government to remove the section that barred the court from inquiring into constitutional claims, the Bar retained its stance via a press release. Last week, the Attorney General BQ Pitts, wrote to Bar Executive telling them to withdraw its release because in his view, the Executive had not consulted its membership. Today, the Executive struck back. In a brief statement, the Bar says that the issuance of the release is well within the powers of the duly elected Executive and in consonance with the position taken by the membership on July twenty-seventh. That position called for the removal of the proposed amendments to Section two and section sixty-nine of the constitution. In short the Bar tells the AG, that the Association will not withdraw its press release.
