Chief Justice Lifts Order Protecting Web Shops

Wednesday 10th, April 2013 / 10:14 Published by

Chief Justice Sir Michael Barnett lifted a conservatory order that prevented the government or the police from shutting down web gaming operations.

Sir Michael ruled that the Supreme Court is not the proper court to restrain the police in the discharge of their duties.

He said the interlocutory order that attorneys Wayne Munroe and Alfred Sears sought on behalf of their clients (web shop operators) was not granted.

The conservatory order was granted after a majority of voters who voted in a gambling referendum said no to web shop gaming and the establishment of a national lottery.

The following morning, Justice Isaacs granted the conservatory order.
