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.
