  1. This is why the ABLP could not have fired the DPP that the UPP hired. The ABLP hands were tied with Anthony Armstrong.
    UPP did the vetting and came back with him(Anthony Armstrong) when the Labour Party won the elections they had to continue with him.

    • When the UPP did the vetting. Did Anthony Armstrong have a dirty record then? The answer is no.It all began since ABLP came into Office.When it came to light that he had an issue of serious consequences in Jamaica.He was force to take a leave to go and cleared his name.My guess,it got so murky that mess could not be cleaned up.So here we are today.That man must be let go.There is no way on Earth.He should be allowed back into that Office but to clean out his personal craps.While doing so he must be watched.In my opinion,he should not and cannot be trusted.

      • @tommy john -You do realize the matter he is accused of happened over 18 years ago? Lets put that at 2003. You do realize he was appointed in 2005? His client who evidence shows agreed to sale did not go after Armstrong until some years after ( 27th June 2019 ) he was released from prison (301h October 2015) on a drug conviction (trafficking) . Yep took the man some 4 years to even file a complaint. Anyway section 87 calls for an independent tribunal of judges to decide whether or not he should be removed

      • @tommy john – what vetting? UPP only believe in vetting when they are not in government. You don’t recall when in government they hailed Yida (said they would do all they could to ensure the project happened). However, when they got thrown out they claimed they have now investigated him and he is no good (sour grapes??)

        • @Tenman: Do you believe he should just resigned? In my opinion,if he does not the Nation should abort him,dash he way.

  2. @Asking- Stop with the untruths, he is yet to be convicted of any crime. The Disciplinary Committee for lawyers in Jamaica found him guilty of Professional Misconduct, early this year (January). He has appealed. Please note (Jamaica’s bar, Disciplinary Committee, is not a court
