Opposition Senator and trade unionist Caswell Franklyn is willing to go the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), if need be, with his challenge to Government’s Emergency Management COVID-19 Directives.

He made the comment as he attended his first court appearance yesterday.

Franklyn, through his attorney Neil Marshall, is accusing Government of illegally enforcing the Directives that he said have not been passed by Parliament. The matter was heard by Justice Jacqueline Cornelius in the No. 13 Supreme Court and adjourned until March 29.

“I want guidance from the court to tell the Government you are not all-powerful, you have to follow certain rules. I will take this all the way to the Caribbean Court of Justice because I believe in what I am doing,” he said. (HLE)
