Governor’s Court Say
HIGH COURT JUDGE Randall Worrell will determine today whether Central Bank Governor Dr DeLisle Worrell will continue in his role or be left open to firing by the Minister of Finance.
In a rare Sunday night ruling Justice Worrell imposed a temporary injunction barring Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler (below) from taking any action against the Central Bank boss after Sinckler summoned him to Government Headquarters last Friday and gave him the option to either resign by the end of business last Monday or face dismissal.
The injunction stands in the way of the minister moving on his lead economic advisor at the Central Bank.
In what is expected to be one of the most closely watched legal battles in years, the High Court is expected to hear from the Solicitor General Jennifer Edwards why Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler had the legal power to remove the embattled Governor. (GE)
