CURE gets green light to take JPS to Privy Council

The Court of Appeal has given lobby group, Citizens United to Reduce Electricity (CURE), the go ahead to proceed to the United.

Kingdom-based Privy Council to challenge the licences of the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS).

In granting the application, the appeal court said the matter is of great public importance.

Attorney-at-law, Hugh Wildman, who is representing CURE, says he expects to put everything in order by next week.

In 2012, the Supreme Court ruled that the JPS all-island electric licence to transmit electricity was null and void.

However, the JPS appealed and the Court of Appeal ruled that the licence is valid.

The lobby group is seeking to get the ruling by the Supreme Court overturned by the Privy Council.
