St Vincent born calypsonian Lornette “Fya Empress” Nedd-Reid is today taking action against the Trinbago Unified Calypsonians Organisation (TUCO).
She has presented the Organization with her own threat of legal action after she was disqualified on Tuesday from participating in Sunday’s Calypso Monarch competition due to her nationality.
Nedd-Reid’s lawyer Keith Scotland yesterday issued a pre-action protocol letter to TUCO.
In his letter to TUCO, Scotland stated that Nedd-Reid was a citizen of St Vincent and has resided in TT for over 15 years.
His later also stated that his client has been married to a TT national since 2002 and has applied for Permanent Residency since in or around 2004.
He also said that Nedd-Reid has been registered with TUCO since 2007, and participated and won several titles in this country and also participated in numerous competitions by the Organization.
He demanded that Nedd-Reid be reinstated in the finals by midday today.
Failure to do so would result in his client approaching the High Court for an injunction forcing the organization to reinstate her.
