Delay likely in BLP suit

Embattled Christ Church West MP Dr Maria Agard could be made to wait a while longer for her case against the Opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) to be heard.

The matter is due to come up for hearing in the High Court tomorrow morning.

However, attorney-at-law Roger Forde, QC, who is representing BLP leader Mia Mottley and General Secretary Dr Jerome Walcott against whom the suit has been brought, is not yet ready to file a defence.

Forde pointed out for the second time this week that legal papers were only filed on his clients on Saturday and that he was still reviewing the documents with a view to  preparing the necessary affidavits.

In these circumstances, he therefore expects an adjournment to be granted.

Dr Agard is seeking an undisclosed sum in damages, as well an overturn of the November 22 decision of the party to expel her.

    This case clearly brought out the biases, incompetence in the justice department. How in the world a date can be set without the affidavit filed to the defendants in due time? The person who did that should be demoted judge/clerk because they clearly don’t have the ability of their job. This is why the justice department can’t cope with the backlog of cases.
    How many times have this happened where time and money has been lost?
