ZIZ Newsroom, Basseterre, February 1, 2013 — The Hon. Sam Condor and Hon. Shawn Richards have filed an order to restrain the new attorney general, Jason Hamilton.
Mr Condor told ZIZ News this is a direct result of the proceedings in parliament on Tuesday.
“We had great concerns with the procedures that were taking place and so we’ve asked the court to give us a declaration on whether what was done in parliament on Tuesday was legal, permissible, and constitutional,” he said.
Parliament passed the increase in Senators Bill 8-7.
Condor says he’s taking this action because he’s fundamentally opposed to the bill and he’s doing what he feels he has to do as a parliamentarian.
