The Supreme Court hearing into the application in the contempt of court case against National Security Minister, Peter Bunting has been pushed to July 24.




The matter should have started today.



However, it had to be rescheduled as Bunting’s attorney, Michael Hylton, has just joined the case.



The contempt of court application was filed by Curaçoan Shureny Quant, who is being represented attorneys-at-Law Carolyn Reid-Cameron and Chukwuemeka Cameron.



The lawyers are contending that Bunting ordered the deportation of their client despite a Supreme Court order barring his removal from Jamaica.



They say due process and the rule of law were not followed.
