Justice Bertram Morrison has indicated that the only order he made last week regarding five men in custody under the States of Public Emergency, is that the men be brought to Court for a further enquiry into the lawfulness of their detention.
Justice Morrison says the writ served only commanded that the men be brought to Court so that the Court may then and there examine and determine whether the cause for their detention is legal.
That confirmation from the Judge has cast doubt on statements made last week by two defense Attorneys, John Clarke and Isat Buchanan.
Clarke and Buchanan had alleged that Justice Morrison had ordered that their clients be released.
Both Attorneys had also appeared in the media and indicated that Justice Morrison had ruled that the detention of their clients under the state of public emergency act is unconstitutional.
But Attorney General, Marlene Malahoo Forte, tweeted that that declaration from the Attorneys cannot be correct.
At the start of hearings into the detention of the men yesterday, Justice Morrison supported suggestions by Government Attorneys that the only order he issued was for the five men to appear in Court.
The developments in Court yesterday led to an apology on social and electronic media from Journalist Dionne Jackson Miller, who broke news last week that the Court had ruled that the detention of the men under the state of public emergency act was in breach of their constitutional rights.
The hearings into the lawfulness of the detention of the five men is to continue before Justice Morrison this morning.
