CCJ rules against ex-top cop Dottin
FORMER COMMISSIONER OF POLICE Darwin Dottin had his request for special leave to appeal denied by the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ).
The island’s final court, in written reasons issued yesterday, denied the refusal of interim relief that Dottin sought following his removal from the top cop post four years ago.
The court noted that since his claimed relief was to enable him to continue in office and he had retired before his appeal to the CCJ, his appeal was without practical merit. His substantive case concerning his dismissal remains to be heard by the Barbados High Court.
Dottin asked the court to determine that there was no such concept as “administrative leave” and that he could not have been compulsorily retired in the public interest under Barbados’ Pensions Act. (PR/ES)
