Spinning top in mud
BARBADOS’ JUSTICE SYSTEM has been called a joke, nothing but play-acting and “spinning top in mud” by senior lawyer and former head of the Bar Association, Andrew Pilgrim, QC.
And Acting Magistrate Alliston Seale came close to agreeing with him yesterday as they both expressed frustration over a five-year-old murder case that appears to be going nowhere.
This was the scene in District “A” Criminal Court 2 as Pilgrim blasted the system, while Seale, a Principal Crown Counsel and former police officer who has worked in the same system for over 30 years, went within a hair’s breadth of dismissing the matter involving murder accused Shamar Antonio Lynch and Micah Laron Chase.
