Parris not in hiding, says lawyer

Leroy Parris’ lawyer says the former executive chairman of CLICO Holdings Barbados is not in hiding.
Responding to a story in the WEEKEND NATION, attorney Michael Yearwood said yesterday that his client was not “hiding, avoiding or evading” marshals of the Supreme Court who want to serve him with a summons.
He said Parris was still in the country and continued to reside at No. 8 Dayrells Heights, St Michael, “where as recently as [Thursday] his lawyers met with him on several legal matters”.
Yearwood added: “Up to the time of writing this letter, no marshal of the Supreme Court has visited Mr Parris’ home or approached him personally for the purpose of serving him with any alleged summons or otherwise.”
Parris and president of CLICO Holdings Limited Terrence Thornhill are facing prosecution for breaching an order by the Supervisor of Insurance in August 2009, prohibiting CLICO International Life Insurance, a subsidiary of CLICO Holdings Barbados Limited, from selling new business.
