Ish and Steve fail at Privy Council

The test case regarding the (in)famous section 34 – of The Administration of Justice (Indictable Proceedings) Act 2011 has failed. The Privy Council has ruled today that the grounds argued at the Privy Council all fail and the appeals by Steve Ferguson, Ameer Edoo, Maritime Life (Caribbean) Limited, Maritime General Insurance Company Limited, Fidelity Finance and Leasing Company Limited are dismissed. Oviously, the decision also affects Iswar Galbaransingh as well as many other persons.

The judgment is clear, well-reasoned and gives very precise reasons for the dismissal of the appeals.
