Attorney surprised about acceptance of evidence
FOR HALF AN HOUR yesterday, the only sound in the No. 7 Supreme Court was the scratching of pens on paper.
But within seconds of a court marshal in Trinidad and Tobago announcing the end of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) sitting, the video conferencing court on the second floor of the Supreme Court Complex was abuzz.
The event was the landmark ruling by the CCJ in the Shanique Myrie vs the Government of Barbados civil suit.
On March 14, 2011, Myrie arrived at the Grantley Adams International Airport.
