Lawyer soaked with beer

A lawyer representing six members of Pan Trinbago’s central executive who were ousted from the organisation last month, yesterday sought to stop an alleged move by the organisation to hold a special convention.

As members of the organisation gathered at the Communication Workers’ Union (CWU) Hall in Port-of-Spain yesterday, attorney Farid Scoon arrived to serve them with an injunction granted by High Court Judge Ronnie Boodoosingh two weeks ago.

PanTrinbago coup

A decision by a large group of PanTrinbago members to remove the organisation’s central executive is now set to be the subject of a legal challenge.

During a special meeting at the CWU Hall in Port-of-Spain on Tuesday evening, 130 members reportedly voted to remove the executive and establish a caretaker committee to oversee the organisation until elections can be held later this year. Only one member reportedly dissented.
