Jomo Thomas, attorney-at-law and former Speaker of the House of Assembly, has chided the ruling Unity Labour Party for disrespecting court orders, as it relates to settling with persons against who it had loss court cases.
Thomas, speaking at a press briefing last Wednesday at his Chambers in Kingstown, highlighted government’s reluctance to settle with persons against whom it had lost court matters, and referenced the matters involving Otto Sam, three teachers (Kenroy Johnson, Elvis Daniel, and Addison “Bash” Thomas), as well as the conflict with Public Servants.
He noted that the government has a way of grinding into the ground, persons with whom they have issues, and he blasted the ruling regime for violating Leon ‘Bigger Biggs’ Samuel’s property rights, effectively preventing him from putting it (his property) to productive use.
As far as Thomas was concerned, the government “is stiff-necked.”
However, he was heartened that the “chickens are coming home to roost,” and more people are seeing the intention of the Unity Labour Party government.
Thomas, who contested the 2015 general elections on a Unity Labour Party ticket, declared, “the government won the elections but lost the country.”
