Abandoning CCJ “horrible decision”

Social Share

Pulling out of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) would be a horrible decision.

This is the opinion of Barbados Labour Party (BLP) candidates Arthur Holder and Trevor Prescod who criticized Prime Minister Freundel Stuart,  who said if re-elected Barbados will distance itself from the regional body.

“If he is allowed to do that then where is the rule of law in this country,” Holder questioned.

He made the comment on Sunday night at Bank Hall during a National Meeting.

Prescod who spoke after, supported Arthur’s point, while making more.

Prescod called out xenophobia and asked why members of the region weren’t treated as good as British and North American tourists.

And he questioned why people took offense to Trinidadian companies operating here, while international banks had been doing so for many years.

“How can you go home and sleep tonight hearing a Prime Minister telling you he will abandon the  CCJ… and you don’t see the wickedness?

You have to get frighten this man disrespect the decision of the High Court, Prescod said. (TG)
