Prosecutor Cheryl Grant-Bethell and her legal team were back in court yesterday as the lawyer representing Attorney General John Delaney tried to convince the court to strike out three paragraphs from her affidavit. Grant-Bethell has filed an application for a judicial review after being passed over for the post of director of public prosecutions(DPP).
The job was given to Jamaican attorney, Vinette Graham-Allen. The main hearing in the matter is scheduled for a week, beginning on January 17, 2011.
Brian Simms represents Delaney and the Office of the Attorney General.
Evans and Company represents the Judicial and Legal Services Commission(JLSC).
As the hearing was closed, it was unclear what paragraphs the attorney general is seeking to have struck out.
