Kim St Rose spends last day as Attorney General

Kim St Rose spends last day as Attorney General

Attorney General, Kim St Rose, spend her last day today, Friday October 14, 2016,  on the job as Attorney General, well placed  Times sources have disclosed.

The exact conditions regarding her departure were not immediately clear.

St. Rose, appointed under the former Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) administration, was directly involved, as Attorney General in two court cases that involved Allen Chastanet before he became Prime Minister.

She became a part of Chastanet’s cabinet by default after his then opposition United Workers Party (UWP) won the June 6, 2016 general elections by a margin of 11 to 6.

Kim St Rose was on contract until 2018.

However the fact that she was a legal claimant against Chastanet while sitting in his cabinet created what Attorney at Law, Mary Francis, described to the Times as an absurdity.

The Chastanet administration was known to be uncomfortable with the situation.

Just last month the Prime Minister had announced at a news conference that finding a win-win situation regarding the Kim St Rose situation was a priority.

St Rose studied at the University of the West Indies (UWI) and the Hugh Wooding Law School.

She served close to five years as Attorney General of Saint Lucia.

Kim St Rose  served as a litigator for the firm of Gordon & Gordon in Castries, worked as a sole practitioner and served two stints as a Magistrate Judge in Saint Lucia.

She also practiced for the Jamaican law firm of Crafton S Miller & Associates and served four years  as a State Counsel in the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions in Guyana.

        UWP should enjoy their time in office. Their fall is going to be hard. Just as hard or even harder than SLP. Your day will come.

          Why don’t we Saint Lucians want our governments to succeed. Here you are praying that this government fails. As a people we should be hoping and praying that all our governments do go because when they fail we suffer, the country suffers. So let’s stop being so political to the extent that we call for OUR demise.

            Because there’s to much PARTISAN politics!

            That’s the MAIN reason why St Lucia just doesn’t seem to be progressing.

            And who’s fault is but our own.

    Kim St Rose did not bring a case against T Chas. It was the Attorney General’s office who brought the case against him. Even if she goes, there is still a case against T Chas for abusing States funds before the Courts which has to be dealt with.

      Some comments just demonstrates the IGNORANCE of some of our people.

      It’s beyond laughable now.

      It’s just like some people don’t realise that if you don’t enter a name, then they comments automatically get attributed with “anonymous.”

      They also don’t seem to realise that free field box we type has a spell check functionality – if there’s a redline under a word they type, they just need to right click and see the correct spelling…

    The Attorney General is to advise on the law. It is not political and cannot be political even if you are selected by the Government of the day. An Attorney General must be strong and must and cannot be dictated to but must follow the law. It is not about UWP or SLP but the holder of the office must at all times follow the law.
