Bain stays.. Secures injunction barring dismissal
The Supreme Court has granted an injunction barring the dismissal of Professor Brendon Bain as the director of the Caribbean HIV/AIDS Training Network until his suit against the University of the West Indies (UWI) is heard.
Justice Carol Edwards granted the injunction this afternoon allowing for Professor Bain to keep his job for the time being.
Bain who is challenging the termination of his contract also wants the court to award damages.
The UWI terminated his contract effective Sunday June 15, after claiming that his constituents had lost confidence in him.
It followed his decision to provide an expert report on homosexuality and HIV in a court matter brought by a gay man in Belize who was challenging a law that makes it illegal for men to have sex with men.
Attorney-at law Georgia Gibson-Henlin, who is representing Bain, says a date has not yet been set for the trial.
