Former CLICO chairman still waiting on court

There have been two court appearances, but still no date set for hearing Leroy Parris’ latest case.

The former CLICO chairman turned up at court this morning with his attorney Hal Gollop, QC, but they left still not knowing when the court would give them the oppportunity to have a hearing on a constitutional motion calling for Parris’ assets to be unfrozen.

This motion stems from what Gollop said is a violation of his client’s right to a fair hearing within a reasonable time. The constitutional motion is also seeking an unspecified amount of damages.

The court order freezing Parris’ assets was made on January 27 after an application from the judicial manager Deloitte Consulting.

Gollop told Barbados TODAY he was astounded at information reaching him today that the judicial manager had made an application asking the court to affirm the interim order even before the defendant could get a hearing for his injunction.

    Effin it please the court, I rises ‘pun a point of common-sense m’lud: Lawyers always win, even if their client…does not.
    Effin yuh cyan pay your lawyer in cold cash….well…homes and properties have changed hands before… like fuh love an affection….or in settlement of a debt incurred at poker, et cetera.
    It is very unlikely that there will be a problem in settling lawyer’s fees …in the instant case. Apart from the gentleman wearing silk garments having a very viable interest, and of course, a just one… and demonstrably…an inherent incentive and spur to legal excellence! All sorts of “arrangements” might already be “in train”, or “on de table”, or “awaiting the court’s pleasure” …or even as Quad Erat Demonstrandum…as I write…and as you read. The gentleman is a personage of great legal acclaim, intelligence, experience, and repute.
    You think that such matters…would be left to the winds of chance? I come not to bury anyone, but to praise them all. Both of them all.
