Bar Association: We want change too
DON’T BLAME US.
That’s the message from the Barbados Bar Association to Minister of Commerce Donville Inniss: It said that contrary to Inniss’ belief, the Bar has always been advocating revolutionary changes to how the legal system operates in Barbados.
“We assure the minister that we are on the same page and that far from the Bar and the members of the profession hampering the process, we have been agitating for the changes to the Legal Profession Act and have even offered to draft the amendments,” the Bar said in an exclusive statement to the WEEKEND NATION yesterday.
“The process has not been stalled by the Bar but by a lack of political and administrative execution,” the Bar added. (TS)
