This government and the previous UPP one, were both accused of manipulating the Courts to go after political foes.
But all of those cases were thrown out by the Courts – those brought under the UPP administration and those by the ABLP administration.
That tells us 2 things. One is that there is a clear separation of powers between the political and judicial sectors. The law works.
And secondly, Antigua and Barbuda must have had and have the most incompetent Attormeys- General in the history of the world.
I think Junstin Simon lost as many as eight of these cases and Cutie Benjamin is quickly catching up. None better than none. Both are just as bad.
The bigger issue here is that the Attorney-General is a government’s chief law officer who advises the government on legal matters.
If your Attorney-General is incompetent then the country has a serious problem that can have far reacing consequences for the country.
It is certainly time for political parties to stop appointing their friends and supporters to this critical position and find a competent legal mind.
