Meerabux resigns from Court of Appeal, cites controversy

In other court news Justice George Meerabux has resigned from his recently awarded seat on the Belize Court of Appeal. Meerabux had been appointed on August twenty sixth as kind of an alternate judge of the court at the same time that Justice George Singh was appointed to the substantive post. The reason cited for the resignation was the controversy over the appointments caused by charges that the former Prime Minister did not properly comply with the constitutional requirement to consult with the leader of the Opposition. Neither Singh nor Chief Justice Manuel Sosa, appointed at the same time as Meerabux, have tendered any resignation. Meerabux will retain his post as a justice of the Supreme Court.
