CCJ president Dennis Byron - File.
The president of the Caribbean Court of Justice Dr Dennis Byron this morning rapped Queens Counsel Roger Forde, the lead attorney for the Barbadian
Government in the case of Jamaican Shanique Myrie.
Forde was attempting to ask a witness Odessa Brown about a Jamaican man living in Barbados, who is alleged to have facilitated Brown’s trip to the Caribbean island.
The attorney was seeking to ask Brown if she knew that the man, Dennis Wright, was a facilitator of people who did not meet the entry requirements to Barbados when he was stopped by Bryon.
“You are going to have some problems, Mr Forde,” the Judge said. “We don’t intend to conduct a trial by ambush,” he told him.
Myrie has brought the Barbadian government before the Caribbean Court of Justice claiming that a cavity search in March 2011 violated Barbadian laws, its international obligations and the revised Treaty of Chaguaramas.
The Jamaican leg of the trial ends on Friday before the matter moves to Barbados.
