COMMISSIONER OF POLICE Darwin Dottin and his legal team will be back in the Court of Appeal on March 21 after the matter was adjourned following a short sitting yesterday.

No legal arguments were heard when the case was called in the No. 1 Supreme Court before Chief Justice Sir Marston Gibson and Justices of Appeal Kaye Goodridge and Andrew Burgess, who after a ten-minute adjournment, set the new date for hearing. Sir Marston also ordered that submissions be made by March 14.

Dottin, the deposed commissioner of police, is contesting being sent on administrative leave by the Police Service Commission (PSC) back in 2013 and is suing the PSC and Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave.

Queen’s Counsel Elliott Mottley and Leslie Haynes are representing Dottin; Deputy Solicitor General Donna Brathwaithe QC is representing Sir Elliott, and the PSC by Hal Gollop QC and Patterson Cheltenham QC who appears in association with Natasha Greene.
