ATTORNEYS AGREE: ILP MOTION ON CONSTITUTION AMENDMENT BILL PREMATURE

The Constitution Amendment Bill, 2014 continues to draw some mixed reviews and Justice Frank Seepersad's ruling on Monday, in favour of the State against ILP members at the High Court, has opened up new discussions. Speaking on Good Morning T&T on Tuesday, Attorneys Wayne Sturge and Martin George are of the view that the ILP is threatened by changes to the country's Constitution. Mr. George said while the ILP's decision to challenge the Bill might have been premature because the legislation is not yet law, it is possible that the party felt threatened by the Run-off provision. "One can understand the anxiety which...

ATTORNEY ON LIBEL AND SLANDER: BALANCE OUR RIGHTS WITH OUR RESPONSIBILITIES

Following a Pre-Action Protocol issued to a radio talk show host, Attorney Martin George says defamation occurs when a person's character is lowered in the esteem of others and with the increase in the use of the internet to communicate to a wide audience, the law has been adjusted to include redress for persons tainted by comments made via the World Wide Web. Communication issued last week from the Office of the President alleged that certain offensive comments made by the radio talk show host threatened to "bring members of the family of His Excellency the President and by extension the...

AMEND LAW FOR DOCTORS TO REPORT QUESTIONABLE MEDICAL MATTERS

Attorney at Law Martin George says amendments need to be made to the law that governs doctor/patient confidentiality. Commenting on the cocaine surgery matter, he said doctors are aware of unlawful offences taking place and they should be mandated to report them. "We might need to look at amending the law to make a requirement, a mandatory legal requirement, for doctors to report because at present, what you have really is basically a moral and ethical responsibility under the terms of the Hippocratic Oath." Meanwhile Medical Practitioner Dr. Rai Ragbir said ignorance of the law is not an excuse. "As a physician, whether it...

MEDICAL BOARD HAS GROUNDS TO PROBE COCAINE SURGERY

The Medical Board must be compelled to act upon the Attorney General's call for an investigation into the cocaine surgery matter. On Monday, the AG indicated that he had written to the President of the Medical Board of Trinidad and Tobago, Dr. Samuel Ramsewak, requesting a probe into the medical professionals who performed the surgery to remove 17 cocaine pellets from a man's stomach at the St. Augustine Private Hospital last December. Attorney Martin George said under Chapter 29:50 of the Medical Board Act, the powers, duties and statutory responsibilities are clearly defined. He also cited what he said was a precedent case...

ATTORNEY: POLICE OFFICERS’ ACTION UNWARRANTED ON WRECKING

Attorney Martin George says the actions of police officers to pull a woman out of her vehicle, as it was being wrecked on Charlotte Street in Port of Spain, were unnecessary and the woman should have been allowed to move her vehicle. The woman, Julia Persad, received $5,000 bail when she appeared in the Port of Spain Magistrates' Court on Wednesday to answer charges of obstruction of police officers in the execution of duties and resisting arrest in relation to the incident on Tuesday. Speaking with C News on Wednesday, Mr. George said while working with the wrecker, officers are not carrying...

WEST READY TO DEFEND WITNESS STATEMENT, SAYS STATEMENT A MATTER OF PUBLIC RECORD

The matter involving Attorney General Anand Ramlogan and newly-appointed Police Complaints Authority Director David West continues to draw mixed reaction. A newspaper article on Sunday implied that PCA Director David West was asked by the Attorney General to withdraw his statement in hopes of being selected for the PCA position. However, responding to a newspaper article, AG Ramlogan denied that he asked the PCA Director to withdraw his witness statement in the defamation case filed against Opposition Leader Dr. Keith Rowley before Mr. West's appointment. "I wish to categorically reject and deny the absurd allegation that I asked PCA Chairman David West to...

POLICE OFFICERS NEED TO SET BETTER EXAMPLES

Member of the Police Service Commission Attorney Martin George feels the Acting Commissioner of Police will send a very good message to the nation if and when ACP Peter Reyes is officially charged for allegedly breaching airline regulations while on board a CAL flight last month. Speaking on Good Morning Trinidad and Tobago on Thursday, Mr. George said it is important that action against rogue officers is taken. "If the police officers are not setting the example, then obviously he needs to do these things to ensure that the public feels that police officers are not going to be off on a...

ATTORNEY MARTIN GEORGE GIVES INPUT ON: LENDL SIMMONS SUED FOR SHARING INTIMATE PHOTOS OF FORMER LOVER

West Indies cricketer Lendl Simmons is being sued by a former lover after he electronically disseminated intimate photos of her. The Breach of Confidence Motion filed by Account Executive, Therese Ho, was heard by High Court judge, Justice Frank Seepersad, at the Hall of Justice on Tuesday. Attorney at Law Martin George confirmed reports that this is the first time such a matter is to be determined locally. He said the outcome represents an innovative approach to dealing with invasion of privacy matters. "While it may be that one might have consented to the taking of photographs, it may not necessarily mean that...

PUBLIC NEEDS MORE INFO ON HIGH PROFILE CRIME CASES

Attorney Martin George is criticising the nation's Protective Services for failing to adequately inform the public on high profile cases. Referring to the ongoing investigation into the murder of Senior Counsel Dana Seetahal in May last year, Mr. George said while officers cannot release sensitive information pertaining to a case, the public needs to be assured that work is being done. "My personal view differs a bit from the hierarchy of the Police Service and the Ministry of National Security which at times has tended to say 'look you can’t say anything because this is a matter of national security.' I’m sorry,...

ATTORNEYS: FARIS WRONG TO ACT AS WITNESS AND ATTORNEY

Attorney-at-Law Martin George says there is no doubt that Faris Al-Rawi is "clearly wrong" to act as both a witness and Attorney in the private court matter involving Opposition Leader Dr. Keith Rowley and former AG Anand Ramlogan. Attorneys are directed not to appear as witnesses for their own clients, except for formal matters where their testimony is essential to the ends of justice. "It is clearly a breach. Mr. Al-Rawi is clearly wrong. However, I will say that it is also not a mortal sin. It is in the nature of a venial sin. So in other words, it is something...
