JUDGEMENT HAS BEEN RESERVED in what was described yesterday as “a very important case” since the eight per cent pay-cut case of 1991.

This description came from Leslie Haynes QC, in the three-year-old appeal hearing in which Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin is contesting being sent on administrative leave by the Police Service Commission (PSC) and is suing the PSC and Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave. 

A document dated June 17, 2013, from the PSC stated that Dottin was being retired in the public interest with immediate effect.

Queen’s Counsel Elliott Mottley and 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 Alrick Scott.

Explaining why he considered the case one of importance, Haynes said it would determine how Government was run. (TKS)
