Prime Minister's Press Secretary
Wednesday, July 12, 2006 - Members of the public who have filed
complaints against local lawyers have been invited to indicate whether they wish
to continue their proceedings.
The invitation has come from the Secretary to the Disciplinary Committee of the
Saint Lucia Bar Association.
The Secretary has invited 17 persons – all of whom had filed complaints against
locally-registered lawyers between November 1991 and November 2002 -- to
indicate whether they were still interested in pursuing their complaints.
In an advertisement in a recent issue of the Saint Lucia Government Gazette, the
Association’s Disciplinary Committee advised the 17 complainants that if they
still wanted to pursue their complaints against the accused Attorneys at Law,
they were to contact the Secretary’s Office of the Registry of the Supreme
The 17 complainants were given a deadline of June 28, 2006 by which to indicate
their desire to pursue their respective complaints.
They were also told that if the Disciplinary Committee received no indication of
their desire to so do by that deadline, the said matters would be deemed
dismissed and would be removed from the list.
