Senate President Floyd Morris says the debate on the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) is likely to continue at the sitting of the Upper House on Friday, October 30.

Senator Morris says the debate’s continuation will be considered under “advisement”, in light of the possible withdrawal of opposition members from the proceedings.

Last Friday, Opposition Senator, Marlene Malahoo Forte, was suspended for what the President said was her failure to submit a copy of a letter he had requested.

Senator Morris says Senator Malahoo Forte's suspension will be lifted once the letter is delivered to his office and the Clerk to the Houses of Parliament, either by email or in person.

The Senate President was addressing journalists at a media briefing at Gordon House yesterday.
