RAMESH HAS MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT SILK

Former attorney general Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj is calling on Attorney General Anand Ramlogan to explain why he awarded Senior Counsel status to himself, and Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar….

Mr. Maharaj feels this must first take place before any discussion can be had on the possibility of abolishing the system.

Last week Wednesday AG Ramlogan said the time has come to “examine the continuing relevance and character of the award and the criteria for the same.

However, Mr. Maharaj said if it was Government’s intention to consider the abolition of awarding silk to attorneys, such a consideration should have been made before Mr. Ramlogan and Mrs. Persad-Bissessar gave themselves the award.

Last week Thursday, members of the Law Association passed a motion agreeing on the establishment of a special committee to decide whether or not the awarding of Senior Counsel should be abolished.
