LAW BODY CALLS ON CJ TO STEP DOWN
The Law Association of Trinidad and To-
bago (LATT) has passed a motion of no con-
fidence against Chief Justice Ivor Archie and
is now calling on him to step down from his
Peter Herbert: The Law Association member-
ship has spoken by the casting of ballots. The votes
counted speak for themselves.
Melina Hutchinson: An attempt by the UNC
lawyers to remove the CJ. They want to destroy
everything in this country because they are no
longer in power. They don't have the moral au-
thority to call on him to resign either.
Debbie Rajmani Seepersad: UNC lawyers?
Hmmm, most of the law association have to be
UNC then. This is only a vote of no confidence.
Let's await the outcome of investigation.
Ruth Roach: These people forgot who they are
playing around with. CJ not going anywhere. He
is not even bothered and they just can't take him
Stephen Steve Ramdhani: I think he will step
down after this.
Rene John: Chief Justice Ivor Archie won't be
pressured into stepping down. He better not take
God out of his thoughts and do so.
Josie Ache-De Goulard: Not quite so certain
this was the out come I expected... Wow! What a
turn of events! Well, let's see what happens here
Andrew James: If so, everybody should go.
This justice system was ailing for some time now.
Too many matters pending, the Airport and other
related matters. We reaping what we sow.
Shyankaran Lalla: Firstly, lets revisit the JLSC
before the Marcia Ayers fiasco. Was the JLSC prop-
erly constituted according to the requirements of
the Constitution? If not, then not only the CJ must
resign but the President also. It is rather unfortu-
nate that the AG, who occupies a quasi judicial po-
sition, did not voice his concerns on behalf of the
people of the country. No person can sit or ought
to hold the position of AG if he/she cannot dis-
charge the duties without fear favour and ill will,

Finally. Khaleesi Webb has found a place to at-
Ingrid Nicholls: Beautiful... go show them
Camanie Maharaj: Look at that smile. Very
happy that it worked in her favour, but all schools
should at this point transition to help the disabled.
Lyn Marie Broomes: She is too cute!
Vidyia Balkissoon: Very happy for her.
Gisele Mcfarlane: Best to her as she excels.
Kamilah Nash: In a few years we will hear how
successful this particular child will be. Shine on
Jonathan Fournillier: There are not many
schools equipped to handle a child with disabilities
and it is something that should seriously be ad-
dressed. They are already at a physical disadvan-
tage, don't make their minds that way too.
Margaret Charles: I am very happy with the
outcome. You did well, thanks for being persistent.
Gerard Gray: But does the school have the
physical infrastructure and human personnel to
properly attend to this child?
Carol Neemai: Thank you Father God. All the
best in school, sweetheart.
Marlon F Espinoza: Penal Quinam Primary is
a wonderful environment for children with a very
forward thinking principal.
Zinaul Hosein: That community will make
that child their own---being a former student and
resident of that tiny village where all the people are
Jake C Gosine: Wheelchair ramps and eleva-
tors should be the norm in all public buildings and
business places. Great that this school was recently
built and disabled people were taken into account.
Woman, 26, held for questioning
A 26-year-old woman is one of two people de-
tained in connection with the discovery of three
AK 47 assault rifles with ammunition and mag-
azines at Piarco Air Services Bond in San Juan on
Gillian Walters I believe all items received in
this country is searched, even from online compa-
nies. Where is the camera footage?
AK FortySeven Why not follow the guns before
leaking the discovery? Always backward.
Jing Bang An they say all the guns coming from
Jake C Gosine: So who going to check out the
Brampton address? Will T&T be contacting the
OPP (Ontario Provincial Police) on this serious
A group of murder accused nearly rioted at the
Port-of-Spain Magistrates' Court yesterday, on
learning that their nearly completed matters may
have to re-start. Some of the accused have spent
over five years awaiting adjudication.
Brian Parker: Justice delayed.
Anna Mohammed: Who can fault the prison-
ers for protesting? They have rights too.
Fazir Mohammed: guilty untill proven inno-
Janelle Duncan: This is so unfair.
Pharoah Morrison: This is wrong and people
need to be held accountable
Nerissa Dqueen: How ironic... and the families
of the deceased will spend the rest of their lives
grieving the loss of their loved ones!
Keavin Saul Them could win money from the
State for their incompetence.
Arlene Armoogam This is so unfair. Some of
these prisoners might be innocent. Some trials
take 10-15 years.
Kenny Supersad This is unfair. Our justice sys-
tem is always a mess with long trials and millions is
given to the judiciary every year.
