State to pay CJ’s bills

Thursday, July 5 2007

THE State will pay suspended Chief Justice Satnarine Sharma’s legal costs before the Tribunal appointed to investigate allegations against him.

By letter dated July 3, Attorney General John Jeremie agreed “to meet the reasonable cost incurred by the Chief Justice” in connection with the proceedings before the Tribunal. Sharma’s lawyers received the letter at 12.20 pm yesterday, after writing the AG on June 22 and 28 asking for the State to cover Sharma’s legal costs.

On June 4 the CJ wrote to President George Maxwell Richards asking for financial assistance in the matter, but the President referred him to the AG as the “appropriate body” for such a request.

The Attorney General is responsible for approving legal costs incurred by persons in government office. On August 7 last year, the AG refused to pay Sharma’s legal bill in relation to his challenge of the bringing of criminal charges against him.

But lawyers close to the Chief Justice wanted to know what is “reasonable costs” adding that the Attorney General was a witness against him and the man who decides what fees to pay. “That could never be fair. Suppose the Attorney General decides to pay minimal fees, the Chief Justice would not be able to retain lawyers of his choice,” the attorney added.

Newsday understands that Sharma intends to have at least one British Queen’s Counsel, one British junior and another support counsel from Trinidad and Tobago represent him. One QC in particular has already been decided upon by the suspended CJ but that QC is yet to be retained.

The team will be instructed by attorney Dennis Gurley of JD Sellier & Co.

How these mudder cont feel dey so smart?

Wa he agreeing to meet the reasonable cost incurred by the CJ. Ah wonder what would be the cost of the AG's legal representation? Ah betcha he fockin costs will be the unlimited funds of the treasury.

But then again what can you expect from the duncee muddercont head AG.

After all he is ah nigga, right ?

Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?

My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to
no data backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
The design and style look great though! Hope you get
the problem resolved soon. Cheers

Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've
had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
