Politicians urged to lay off magistrates

POLITICIANS are being asked to refrain from making statements which has the likelihood of impugning the integrity of magistrates.

The call came from the Association of Magistrates yesterday after it said it noticed an alarming trend by politicians.

In a three-line statement, the association said it “strongly denounced this as these statements can have the effect of eroding public confidence in the magistracy and the administration of justice generally.

“In light of the influence that these politicians exercise over their constituents, the association urges politicians to desist from making unsubstantiated public pronouncements,” the statement added.

Although not referring to a particular incident, only recently claims of bias in the judicial process were made by Opposition Leader Basdeo Panday as he was commenting on the dismissal of corruption charges against former PNM energy minister Eric Williams by Senior Magistrate Lucina Cardenas-Ragoonanan.
