The Constitutional Court has ruled that Mr. Holness should not be obligated to pay Mr. Williams’ legal bill because Williams was an integral party to the unlawful scheme.
Mr. Williams had admitted to crafting the undated letters before he and his colleagues were appointed to the Senate in 2012.
The court said Mr Williams’ scheme was ill-conceived and nonsensical.
Mr. Charles says he agrees with the Court’s ruling that legal costs should not have been awarded in his client’s favour.

Mrs. Gibson Henlin says the Court chose not to have the Opposition Leader pay Mr. Williams’ legal bill because it was Williams who had advised the Opposition Leader that the undated letters were constitutional.
