The Meeting was held as preparations heighten for the start of the 2020 Round of Housing and Population Census. CARICOM has traditionally adopted a regionally coordinated approach to Census activities. This has led to benefits including greater harmonisation of the census results; knowledge-sharing; adoption of best practices; functional and technical cooperation; cost-savings through the availability of regional public goods; and regional training. The Census is part of an integrated programme of the CARICOM Regional Statistics Work Programme and from the 2010 Census Round, the RCCC  has met on a continuous basis in acknowledgement of the importance of the Census to the body of statistics being produced in the National Statistical Systems.

Linton ‘empowered’ by Privy Council defeat

first_img Share 808 Views   3 comments Sharing is caring! LocalNews Linton ‘empowered’ by Privy Council defeat by: Dominica Vibes News – October 12, 2015 Tweetcenter_img Share Share Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton on his way to Parliament on Friday 24 July 2015 (file photo)Opposition Leader Lennox Linton, who lost a defamation case against Chattered Accountant Kieron Pinard-Byrne, says the Privy Council ruling “empowers” him to do a number of things and that his head is “bloodied but not bowed”.Speaking on a radio program on Monday 12 October 2015, Mr Linton said in all respects of this matter, he “stood for and on behalf” of the people of Dominica in a matter where their interest “was severely injured”.The issue brought before the Privy Council was whether the Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal was wrong to have overturned the High Court Judge’s rejection of the defence of qualified privilege following Reynolds v Times Newspapers Ltd [2001] 2 AC 127.Kieron Pinard-Byrne, who appealed the matter to the Privy Council, was involved in an investment and development programme in Dominica known as the Layou River Project.The facts of the case according to the Privy Council are that on 26 February 2002 the appellant was a guest on a radio call-in programme discussing the Layou River Project. Mr Linton, a journalist, called into the programme and made comments accusing the appellant of criminality, dishonest and unprofessional conduct.In the sixteen page judgement delivered on 12 October 2015, the Privy Council said on the facts, the detailed case against Pinard-Byrne was not spelled out and no evidence in support of the allegations was adduced. Mr Linton said he is the only person who has gone through all stages of the court’s process and “now stands liable for a defamation claim” and quoted James Russell Lowell who said “Truth forever on the scaffold, wrong forever on the throne, yet that scaffold sways the future, and, behind the dim unknown, standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above his own”.Mr Linton said the shadows he is referring to include the criminal justice system, government and the court system; whether High Court, Court of Appeal or Privy Council. “We’re not dealing with God, we’re dealing with human beings with a responsibility that they discharge for justice and if the discharge of justice ask you, or requires you to go and look for the truth and you come back and you say you didn’t find the truth, does not mean that the truth does not exist or the truth is not what it is,” he said.Mr Pinard-Byrne is to provide submissions to the court with regards to costs within twenty-one days and Mr Linton is to respond within fourteen days.“I have that phase of the proceedings to conclude, I only make my observations on what I faithfully brought to the court and what was either rejected or ignored. Is it justice? That is not for me to decide,” Mr Linton said. “My interest has always been and continues to be, the people of the Commonwealth of Dominica whose interest were severely injured at Layou where over a hundred and thirty million dollars of passport money came and went and they still do not have the hotel that was promised to bring the employment, to bring the foreign exchange earnings and to bring the international exposure by way of free publicity of the hotel in international circles to the Commonwealth of Dominica,” Mr Linton emphasized.He noted that the only beneficiaries of the project has been the consultants, auditors, accountants, architects and engineers who made their money and moved on.“It is what it is, we move on; my head is bloodied but it is not bowed…This judgement empowers me to do a number of things,” Mr Linton said but did not disclose what they were.“I want you to watch closely the developments over the next couple of months and years because if Pinard-Byrne can prevail at the Privy Council on the basis that he did given what happened at Layou, Lennox Linton will prevail many times over in the context of statements made about him by other people, a number of other people, statements made about him by senior counsels and ministers of government and so on, which will have their day in court and based on the arguments used in the Pinard-Byrne case now, I want to see how our final courts will go around those to deny me the justice I deserve,” he stated. Mr Linton assured that he will continue paying attention to the aftermath of Layou because “I believe that the people of Dominica have a right to take responsibility and to act responsibly where their interest is injured”. Mr Pinard-Byrne was contacted for comment on the ruling and said he would issue a statement sometime today.last_img read more
