Law Association committee to submit report on CJ today

The committee appointed by the Law Association to investigate allegations against Chief Justice Ivor Archie will deliver its interim report this evening.

Contacted today, the association's president, Senior Counsel Douglas Mendes, who is also a member of the committee, indicated that he and the other members were meeting to prepare their report to be submitted to the association's council.

The committee members would wait until the rest of the council members are present at their monthly meeting next month to discuss the report.

The association has also solicited the legal opinions of two eminent regional senior counsel on whether the allegations against CJ Archie are sufficient to trigger impeachment proceedings under Section 137 of the Constitution.

The association is also offering Archie an opportunity to respond to the allegations.

The association is expected to inform its membership of the report, the legal advice and Archie's possible response.
