Governor gets six more days

Central Bank Governor Dr DeLisle Worrell now has six more days in office.

After discharging his initial five-day injunction this morning, High Court Judge Randall Worrell this afternoon issued a new stay to the Governor, pending the outcome of his formal appeal against his planned dismissal by Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler.

Today, Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite, whose office is representing the Minister of Finance, made a surprise appearance in court.

However, there was no sign of either Worrell or Sinckler, but the Governor was represented by his legal team, including lead attorney Gregory Nicholls, Renee Butcher and Janice Brown.

    Not surprise

    I suppose this time is necessary for the learned judge to consider all evidence & then to make his final ruling. These things take time.

    Governor, my advice since neither the Board or the Minister want to work with you anymore is – hold that long overdue media press-conference and tell the country EVERYTHING that they need to know about the economy.

    Make sure to have a Q&A segment afterwards and just let it all out.

    Governor, you contributed to the mess our economy is in and as a result, there is no sympathy from me as to what is happening.

    Just make sure you give the country the press-conference before leaving – at least you can do that for the country

      He aint no pauper, he spending the $ to make a point, he was complicit in the dlp playbook but at least accept he has realized his way, belatedly and standing up to be counted.

    This makes no sense, just pack your bags, the Government will never give in on an issue like this, Governor of Central Bank. Think about the Governor of Trinidad Central Bank, once Government say go, you gone.

    Political pressure , Economic pressure, so the Governor is the fall guy. You just can’t fire the PM in this political set-up. He is Mr. Cool in all this. May be he is enjoying a big-mout-drink and smoking a Cuban cigar . LOL,LOL,LOL.

  14. Jennifer February 17, 2017 at 5:42 pm

    In all this court mess, not once did Mr Sickler appear in court. This should tell you a thing or two. They should also summon the Prime minister to answer questions in court too.
    There should be a Prime Minister question time show where, the public can ask him questions on the running of the cabinet and country. Instead of the voter only seeing these coons once at voting and then only resurfacing before another election, with their nonsense all over again.

    Keep constant fire lit under them.

    In the mean time Barbados burns. God help us.

  19. Peter February 17, 2017 at 6:54 pm

    Jennifer, I’ve said it and written it over and over. Fruendel CANNOT fire Sinkler. He CANNOT fire none of them DEM. It would be like Giving up their political status. It won’t happen Don’t hold your breath. Everywhere throughout the Caribbean everyone comments on the failure of this government. They are surprised Barbadians have not yet revolting. Carson C Cadogan read carefully I NEVER said Barbadians should revolt I just said other people around the region sais they are surprised Barbadians have not revolted. You like to twist around things.

    • harry turnover February 17, 2017 at 7:46 pm

      WELL said Peter. I have said it too..the PM en gine fire a fella…de man like showing off as PM too much….if he fire ONE ..ALL ah DEM gine fall down.
      Somehow though I have a gut feeling that this is a deliberate move by ALL involve to pay out the Doc.Won’t be surprise then if the Court rules in favor of Worrell and then he and DEM , (since it won’t be business as usual) work out a separation package.

  20. Jennifer February 17, 2017 at 7:27 pm

    @Peter – I do not want the PM to fire Mr Sickler. I want the PM in court to answer questions on this issue. So you are saying he cannot go to court?????? I hope CCC is not rubbing off on you.

    Pop Caan have a song. Ah who ago win. What is really going on. This is not the time to be fighting.The governor should let the public know what happened.He has nothing to lose. How long this is going to go on. The out side world is watching, what is going to happen,is that no one will want to do business with Barbados just now.

  24. Harry February 17, 2017 at 9:23 pm

    I find Mr. Maggo’s choice of lawyer interesting, he hires Nicholls the BLP candidate who ran against & lost Sinkler………. both he & the MOF should be fired but that is not going to happen. Our present PM is a WIB and not going to fire a fella.

  25. VICTOR CALLENDER February 18, 2017 at 2:29 am

    The only thing that is saving Chris Sinckler’s black ass, is that he was elected by the people. Chris Sinckler has been in the possession of Barbados’ check book for far to long, and he as well as Governor Worrell and Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, have acted with compulsion to suborn the truth. The economic “Magicians” tricks of the ruling DLP, have reached their zenith, and it is now time for the seemingly innumerate Sinckler, to follow his disappearing, can’t be found boss, Freundel Stuart, and to enjoy long vacations, and drinks with umbrellas in them. Freundel Stuart treats Barbadians, just like a dead beat dad, hiding from child support payments.

    I remember almost eight years ago when Barbados was doing well and the BLP was in office, bajans was complaining how the land too much Guyanese and Owen like Guyanese, they voted out a good Government to put a party that always led our nation to destruction look a day like today all the Guyanese return home they got the world of oil now and we here struggling with the dlp

    God don’t like ugly!!!
