Chuck Refers Judge Glen Brown for Possible Disciplinary Action

229

Justice Minister, Delroy Chuck, says he’ll refer High Court Judge, Glen Brown to the Chief Justice for possible disciplinary action for controversial comments he reportedly made about the so-called police death squad cases.

Justice Brown reportedly threatened to toss out three of the cases because of what he allegedly cited as the government’s failure to pay the attorneys representing the accused policemen.

Minister Chuck says this isn’t Justice Brown’s first transgression.

Mr. Chuck maintains that the government is not obligated to pay the legal fees of the policemen who are before the court. He says Justice Brown crossed what he calls the ‘red line’ in the matter.
