Throw The Bum (Case) Out
The Judicial and Legal Service Commission (JLSC) is seeking to have the judicial review, which would determine if Cheryl Grant-Bethell was overlooked for the post of the director of public prosecutions (DPP), thrown out of the Supreme Court.
Grant-Bethell filed the application at the Supreme Court registry in June calling for a review of the JLSC’s decision to pass over her and select Jamaican Vinette Graham-Allen as DPP in the Office of the Attorney General.
During a preliminary hearing yesterday in the Supreme Court attorney Thomas Evans, QC, told Senior Justice Jon Isaacs that he intends to file an application that Grant-Bethell did not properly apply for the judicial review in the first place.
He said there is no originating document for the action.
Speaking to the media after the brief hearing, he explained why Grant-Bethell’s application for the review should be tossed.
“The rules of the Supreme Court say how you go about doing these things,”he said referring to the application process.corruption, courts, government, law
