Justice Minister, Delroy Chuck, says the Government will not appeal the decision by the Constitutional Court to strike down the National Identification Systems act, NIDS as null, void and of no legal effect.

Minister Chuck says moves are being made to create a new NIDS bill.

Minister Chuck was addressing a media briefing at his Ministry Headquarters in St. Andrew this morning.

Last month, Bryan Sykes-led Constitutional Court ruled that aspects of the NIDS act are in violation of the Constitution.

Chief Justice Sykes announced that the Court found that the entire law should be struck down.
