Prime Minister appalled by verbal attack on court

Prime Minister, Hon. Dr. Kenny D. Anthony, says he is appalled by the recent attack on the Supreme Court and its Judges by Hon. Guy Joseph, Parliamentary Representative for Castries South East. 

 At a recent United Workers Party public meeting held on the Morne Fortune Lay-By, during Guy Joseph’s address to his audience in Kwéyòl, he said this (the English version follows): 

 “So I want to tell the lawyers something and I want to tell the judges something. You all heard a case in May. It have six months you all have not given a verdict. They say you not saying anything when you in court. That is nonsense, and if the judge want me to talk to him, I can talk to him, and I can take him on when I want. Because you cannot tell me you all was in a hurry to make the case, you all rented hotel to make the case because the court house was closed.

 “You all rented Bay Gardens to make the case. When my lawyer comes down and he presented the case and in one day they heard the whole case and it have six months you all cannot give the verdict.”

 According to Prime Minister Anthony, 

“Guy Joseph is clearly referring to his appeal from the High Court to uphold the decision of the Boundaries Commission to appoint Anthony Astaphan SC as its legal counsel in the Boundaries Case. This is an unprovoked attack on the independence and integrity of the Judges of the Court of Appeal and President of the Court who sat on the case. This is also a sinister attempt for whatever reason to drag the Judges into the political arena by dishonestly imputing improper motives to them. This attack by a former Minister of the Crown and current Member of the Parliament is unprecedented. It is unquestionably an insidious and political assault on the Court, and must be condemned.”

 Dr. Anthony added, 

“This is so serious that I will request my attorneys in the Boundaries matter to refer the comments to the Court at the soonest.”

    Kenny you too viciez!! Why can’t Guy ask questions about the length of time it takes to render a decision. We all have agreed for a very long time that the judicial system in St. Lucia sux. That jusgements take years for the most trivial of matters. That Bordelais is overflowing with people on remand for YEARS!! Yet you are so appalled by the obvious!

    You were not appalled when Stanley Felix and the rest of the Taliban fall down in the DPP skin for not doing anything about IMPACS after six months. You and all the Taliban were on radio and TV day and night lambasting the DPP for taking too long, but now, just because it’s Guy Joseph you all frothing at the mouth like rabid manicou.

    Day by day you all becoming more desperate.

    Guy Joseph, my recommendation to you is to keep juking Kenny because it seems one day you will succeed in toofaying him by just speaking and representing the people. If you ever look at Kenny’s face when he speaks about Guy it’s like a man in severe pain who then goes on to lose all sense of reality, in a daze, and just babbles nonsense.

    Instead of Guy, you should be appalled about the Juffali nonsense you all have St. Lucia in.

    Shucks man! You too boldface.
