Allegations against court shot down by attorney

 

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The allegations by former Nevis premier Joseph Parry and his former deputy that they have been wronged by the OECS Supreme Court has been shot down by attorney Emile Ferdinand QC. An election petition case saw the parliamentary seat of former deputy premier Hensley Daniel declared null and void. The appeal process which followed saw an earlier decision for Parry and Daniel to pay costs reversed.

The two then told the media that their reputations had been hurt by the overall court  judgment, and that the ruling had caused their Nevis Reformation Party to lose the last Nevis election. QC Ferdinand has, like some of his other colleagues, labeled the Parry/Daniel criticisms of the region’s courts unfair. He also suggested that the two have been misrepresenting the OECS Supreme Court ruling against them, because one statement in a 93 paragraph was altered by the court in the interest of justice on the question of costs.

“That of course was spun into  -  the court had decided that it had given a wrong decision,” Ferdinand said in reference to the comments being made by Parry and Daniel about the ruling. Asked what action the two could take because they feel aggrieved, attorney Ferdinand says courts are given a measure of immunity in their actions because this is in the public interest. The Queens Counsel made his remarks on the matter while delivering a lecture on the Caribbean Court of Justice during the local Bar Association’s  observance of Law Week.
