Parris suing the state
MORE THAN TWO MONTHS after the assets of Leroy Parris, the former head of the collapsed financial giant CLICO, were frozen, he is suing the state.
In the latest court battle, Parris is claiming that his constitutional right to a fair hearing within a reasonable time has been breached. Parris and his consultancy company Branlee were the subject of an ex parte hearing filed by CLICO’s judicial manager Deloitte Consulting Limited in which an injunction was sought and obtained freezing his assets at the end of January.
But yesterday Queen’s Counsel Hal Gollop, the lead counsel representing Parris and his company, took to the airwaves to say that he and the legal team did not believe their clients were being treated fairly by the court system. He cited the length of time it was taking to have a second hearing on the matter after the freezing of the assets. (AC)
