Fixated on judge

Published:Wednesday | June 29, 2016 | 12:00 AM


The Sunday Gleaner, of June 26, 2016, carried a column by attorney-at law Bert Samuels, who is appearing in the Trafigura case. Without going into the legal technicalities of his letter, it struck me that if he does not think a ruling of the judge is correct in law as to whether or not his clients should be allowed to give evidence in open court, he should go to the Privy Council, until he gets the justice he seeks.

Or there is another reason for the fixation on the judge and not his ruling. Is another plan afoot which we shall hear of from these learned men in due course? The judge, it appears, is standing in their way.
