Eastmond knocks laughter, thumping

ATTORNEY AT LAW Lynette Eastmond said there was table-thumping, laughing and loud expressions at Sunday’s disciplinary hearing of Dr Maria Agard.

Speaking to the media after she and lead counsel Hal Gollop, as well as Agard walked out of the Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) National Council meeting at party headquarters on Roebuck Street, The City, in protest, Eastmond charged that it was a biased meeting.

“You don’t want to go before a tribunal where when your chief prosecutor is speaking, they are thumping on the table and laughing and saying, ‘Yea, yuh got he’ and that kind of thing,” complained Eastmond, who formerly was the BLP candidate in the St Philip West constituency and served as third vice-president and public relations officer of the party.

“It can’t be like that,” she argued. (MB)
