The High Court moments ago granted Member of Parliament for St. Peter, Asot Michael, an injunction against the Antigua and Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP).
The ABLP has been seeking to punish Michael for violating the party’s Code of Ethics.
Michael appeared before the High Court this morning with his legal team headed by Hugh Marshall Jr.
Michael’s attorney, Hugh Marshall Jr., has argued that the Tribunal has no legal standing and is therefore incapable of deliberating the issues related to his client before or handing down a decision.
If Michael was found guilty by the tribunal, a number of disciplinary actions, from a reprimand to expulsion from the party, could be recommended.
