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 Court.

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.
