Gollop, Agard still waiting on BLP
DR MARIA AGARD and her attorney Hal Gollop are still hoping to hear from the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) today to have a decision to expel her from the political party overturned.
Today marks the seven-day ultimatum Gollop, a Queen’s Counsel, had given the BLP to reverse its decision to expel the Christ Church West Member to Parliament from the party on November 22.
When contacted yesterday, he said he wasn’t aware the BLP had changed its mind. “I don’t know if anything has changed,” he told the MIDWEEK NATION.
He hinted that taking legal action against the BLP was still on the cards. “We stand by our letter,” Gollop said, referring to one sent to the BLP asking for the expulsion to be reversed.
Gollop has claimed that Agard’s expulsion was flawed because it did not follow the rules of natural justice.
BLP general secretary Dr Jerome Walcott was tight-lipped on the matter yesterday. “I have nothing to say on that. I have no idea if the council is set to meet on the matter again,” he said when pressed for a comment. (BA)
