PM Browne says there will be no gloating over Privy Council victory



The Cabinet held a discussion around the recent decision rendered by the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council on the issue of land ownership in Barbuda.

The highest court in the land ruled against the two plaintiffs who brought the issue before the Court, challenging the right of the Government of Antigua and Barbuda, acting as the Crown, to determine leases and other kinds of exercise of ownership over land in Barbuda.

The court found that the decision of the Court of Appeals was correct and, therefore, dismissed their appeal to the Privy Council.

The Prime Minister indicated to the Cabinet that he has already discouraged any member of his government from gloating over the decision but, rather, to set-about to rebuild the unity between the people of both islands.

He urged all Antiguans and members of his political party not to engage in triumphalism; the decision is not a victory for any political party but has set a clear path for the development of Barbuda for the benefit of all.

There are plans being made to travel to Barbuda to hold town-hall meetings and other media events to address the issue frontally by the Parliamentary Secretary for Barbuda Affairs. CLICK HERE TO JOIN OUR WHATS APP GROUP FOR MORE UPDATES
