Opposition Leader Portia Simpson Miller, filed an injunction in the Supreme Court to block Prime Minister Bruce Golding from recommending the dismissal of the members of the Public Service Commission, (PSC).

Mrs. Simpson Miller wants the injunction to remain in force until the PSC is offered a fair hearing by an impendent and impartial tribunal into the allegations of misbehaviour.

Mrs. Simpson Miller reported that one of the reasons cited by Mr. Golding was a July 2007 Supreme Court ruling. He also said the PSC breached the rights of Senior Assistant Attorney General Lackston Robinson in dismissing him.

Mr. Robinson had taken the PSC to court after he was removed from office. But the Supreme Court ruled that he should be reinstated.

Attorney-at-law, Bert Samuels, of the law firm, Knight, Junor and Samuels said his company has been approached to argue the case.
