ALL THE RIGHT MOVES

Implementation and action on crime are two things that the general public had been longing for and over the years we have been battered, bruised and beaten down by the criminals who took charge and who viewed the law with impunity and scant regard. Implementation and action on crime are two things that the general public had been longing for and over the years we have been battered, bruised and beaten down by the criminals who took charge and who viewed the law with impunity and scant regard. Despite the cries and complaints of the bleeding heart liberals, the resumption of hangings...

AN ABOUT FACE ON CLICO

Committee seeking feedback on self-governance issue A committee comprising Tobago-born attorneys Christlyn Moore and Martin George and political scientist Hamid Ghany was appointed by Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar to hold public meetings throughout the sister isle in an effort to get feedback on the Green Paper on self governance for Tobago. Persad-Bissessar disclosed this at the People's Partnership second anniversary celebrations at Old Market Square, Scarborough Tobago on Saturday. She said following the consideration of comments received, the Government proposes to publish a White Paper containing its policy for internal self-governance for Tobago and draft legislation to implement that policy. Persad-Bissessar said her Government,...

A MATTER OF DECORUM

Okay! Would somebody tell retired Court of Appeal judge Anthony Lucky that it just does not seem proper for his name, face and title to be plastered all over an advertisement for a private, family-run school teaching law. Okay! Would somebody tell retired Court of Appeal judge Anthony Lucky that it just does not seem proper for his name, face and title to be plastered all over an advertisement for a private, family-run school teaching law. Justice Lucky has never been one to shy away from a microphone or a camera or an invitation, but really he ought to re-think this present...

LEARNING THE LESSONS OF LAW

Apart from the sensationalism, emotion and the general hue and cry generated by the unvarnished comments of the learned Justice of Appeal Stanley John Apart from the sensationalism, emotion and the general hue and cry generated by the unvarnished comments of the learned Justice of Appeal Stanley John , with regards to the performance and functioning of magistrates, there seems to be a larger issue at stake here on the question of continuing legal education for both members of the Bench and Bar, even from the magisterial level all the way up to the Court of Appeal. We have seen in the past...

ROAD TO SILKEN SEDUCTION

It is indeed heartening to see that the Honourable Attorney General has decided that there needs to be an overhaul of the entire system for the assessment and award of silk in this country. What is of some disquiet though, is that by appointing Mr Samraj Harripaul, the chairman of the Law Reform Commission to prepare a Green Paper in this regard, he unfortunately places Mr Harripaul in a rather invidious position. Mr Harripaul was among this very group of silks which has attracted so much attention and scrutiny, so that any recommendations, proposals or suggestions emanating from him in...

THA TO APPEAL RULING AGAINST IT

THA Chief Secretary Orville London has said the Tobago House of Assembly intends to appeal Wednesday's ruling against it in the Port of Spain High Court, before Justice Nadia Kangaloo. “Based on the comments and the recommendations, the initial recommendations from the legal counsel, it is more than likely the decision would be appealed, because there are at least four or five grounds where we believe the judge has erred in law,” London said. He said the THA Act of 1996 is subject to various interpretations, and this serves as a wake up call for all of Tobago. London said this government was...

PULP FICTION

Byline Author: Martin George Article Date: Sunday, June 21, 2009 Looking on at the daily body count as it piles up around Trinidad and Tobago makes you wonder if we aren’t looking at our own home-made version of the movie Pulp Fiction II. Looking on at the daily body count as it piles up around Trinidad and Tobago makes you wonder if we aren’t looking at our own home-made version of the movie Pulp Fiction II. The fiction is fuelled by the Ministry of National Insecurity, which presides over the collapse and total failure of any feelings of safety and security that the citizenry may have...

FEW GOOD MEN TO PREVENT CORRUPTION

Byline Author: Martin George Article Date: Sunday, May 24, 2009 I start by defusing the battle-cry of the feminists, or those who may view the heading as sexist by saying it as we say in the law, that when we use such expressions, “the male embraces the female,” so the title also includes looking for a few good women. During the past few weeks, I have looked on in mild amusement as the nation has wrapped and tied itself into knots over the search for a few good men—and supposedly men of integrity—to be the integrity commissioners. Now, from my observations and analysis of...

NO MORE INTEGRITY ACT

  Byline Author: Martin George Article Date: Sunday, June 7, 2009 Attorney General John Jeremie has come back into office and has vowed to deal with corruption and to review the Integrity Act. I commend him for this. There is also a bit of advice I would proffer to him, which is that in one fell swoop, he may be able to deal with both corruption and the Integrity Act, and it starts by scrapping the whole Integrity Act. I would, therefore, repeat some suggestions from an earlier article whereby I proposed that there be a total name change and that we have no more...
