The Supreme Court’s Civil Division has ordered an interim injunction restraining Senior Superintendent of Police Jacqueline Coombs and by extension the Attorney General of Jamaica from conducting any further warrantless searches of law firm, Bignall Law, until another matter before the court is heard.
The matter was heard in chamber by Justice Glen Brown.
The claimant, Vaughn Oneil Bignall, was represented by a team of attorney’s instructed by John Clarke.
While the Defendants, SSP Coombs and the Attorney General of Jamaica, were represented by Attorneys Christine McNeil and Shaniel Hunter instructed by the Director of State Proceedings.
The order seeks to prevent the defendant, either by herself and police officers under her command or any other agents, from initiating or continuing any further searches of the law firm without full compliance with the charter of Fundamental Rights and Freedom.
This, pending the outcome of the Applicant’s claim for relief under the Constitution or until further orders of the Court are issued.
