Peter Bunting case: Justice Marsh to rule on application that could derail proceedings
2013-10-08 09:14:50 | (0 Comments)
Justice Horace Marsh is to rule today on an application which could derail a contempt of court case against the national security minister, Peter Bunting.
Peter Bunting – File
Shureny Quant is contending that Bunting breached a Supreme Court ruling when he ordered his deportation to his homeland Curaçao.
However, Queen's Counsel Michael Hylton, who is representing Bunting, yesterday raised objections to Quant's application.
He has asked for a court order for Quant to prove that he has money to pay legal costs in the event he is not successful in the case.
And Justice Marsh is to rule on the matter today.
Quant, who is being represented by Attorneys-at-Law Carolyn Reid-Cameron and Chukwuemeka Cameron, is claiming that when he was deported in April there was a Supreme Court order in place which had barred his deportation.
Quant is asking for the national security minister to be imprisoned for unlawfully removing him from Jamaica, and refusing to tell the court the reasons for his detention or his whereabouts.
Quant contends in court documents that his deportation constitutes an enforced disappearance of persons and has described it as a crime against humanity.
