G.O.B. Looks to the C.C.J. for Possible Appeal

Kenneth Benjamin

So what the government’s next move? More litigation….According to Prime Minister Dean Barrow, the government will be looking at the Caribbean Court of Justice for another appeal, though that appeal is not likely to be launched ahead of April tenth. Though the Court of Appeal upheld the injunction, the P.M. also said that he believed that the Chief Justice had gotten it horribly wrong in granting the injunction last Wednesday.

“In other words, we must at least examine of the possibility of having the highest court of our country look at the Chief Justice’s decision which after examining, never had a chance to do after we spoke last, and after taking advice from various luminaries throughout the Caribbean. I am entirely convinced; I shall go to my grave secure in the knowledge that the Chief Justice got it horribly wrong. We therefore will huddle with counsel later this evening to see if we can go get before the C.C.J. to in fact have hearing of the substantive appeal against the Chief Justice’s injunction.”
