‘Pay me too’
ON THE HEELS of Jamaican Shanique Myrie being paid last Friday, a local executive fired from his post six years ago is calling on the Government to pay him longstanding legal damages that have now gone past $1 million.
Former director of Government’s Urban Development Commission (UDC), George Edghill, told the SUNDAY SUN yesterday that after being dismissed from that post in February 2008, it was “only fair” that he should begin receiving the money awarded to him by the law courts.
Edghill was awarded a judgment of $809 744.43 plus six per cent interest by Justice Jacqueline Cornelius on September 24, 2012.
The judgment was against the Government for wrongful dismissal, and the outstanding amount due up to this month is $1 110 000 plus costs for his two attorneys.
