Is the PM a defence lawyer?

The Editor,

My advice to Prime Minister Bruce Golding on the Christopher 'Dudus' Coke extradition case is to stop and listen to the cry of your people who are worried as a result of your actions. As the head of state, you should be able to make tough decisions that are best for the majority of your people. When a soldier is sent to war, he or she goes with the understanding that they are doing it for the benefit of the majority and not personal gain.

Guilty or not?

Whether Dudus is guilty or not, your actions in his defence appears too personal. The courts are there to be used as tools to make this decision. Dudus, like all of us, has the freedom to use his money to defend himself. You should not use your office in his defence.

Mr Golding you cannot be a defence lawyer and a prime minister at the same time.There are more matters of importance that need your attention than this.

I am, etc.,
