Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley, says he has received no official request from the Law Association of Trinidad and Tobago regarding starting impeachment proceedings against Chief Justice, Ivor Archie.

Chief Justice Ivor Archie.

On Tuesday evening the membership of the L.A.T.T. voted in favor of making a recommendation to the Prime Minister to trigger impeachment proceedings against the CJ.

The law body started a probe into allegations of misconduct against the CJ following reports of claims that he used his office to benefit his friends.

The CJ challenged that investigation maintaining that the association did not have the power under the constitution to carry out a probe against him.

Both the local appeal court and the London based Privy Council dismissed the CJ’s complaints about the process.

The development then gave the Law Association the all clear to continue its probe.

Questioned on the matter by Oropouche East Member of Parliament, Dr. Roodal Moonilal, in the House of Representatives this afternoon, Dr. Rowley said he has not been notified by the LATT in any way on this latest constitutional development.

However, Dr Moonilal continued to probe away on the matter by asking a supplemental question.
