Basseterre, St. Kitts, February 7, 2018 – On the heels of public concern of the Timothy Harris administration manipulation of the judiciary, law enforcement, other sectors of government and even non-governmental organisation, comes a call from a United States-based political consulting company for the Registrar of the High Court in St. Kitts and Nevis, Mrs. Janine Harris-Lake to re-list a civil matter involving the Minister of Tourism, Hon. Lindsay Grant.
“In September 2016, the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court ruled in favour of political consultancy BuzzMaker who sued Tourism Minister Lindsay Grant over failure to make payment related to services provided in the lead up to the 2010 general elections in the Federation. In spite of the court ruling in BuzzMaker’s favour in September 2016, a year and a half later, BuzzMaker has yet to receive the final judgment from the court,” a release said Wednesday.
BuzzMaker reports that it’s counsel has sent several formal letters to the High Court Registrar, Janine Harris-Lake, imploring the registrar to re-list the matter so that the specific monetary judgment can be delivered and the firm can receive monies owed.
“No action has been taken to date by the registrar,” said the release.
“In support of our formal letters we’ve sent over the last 18 months, we are adding our public voice to the call on the High Court Registrar, Ms. Harris-Lake, to re-list the matter so that a judgment can be rendered and collections can begin. We will continue to wait patiently and thank the officers of the court for their professionalism in this politically sensitive matter,” said BuzzMaker President Matthew A. McMillan.
Ms. Harris-Lake is the sister of the Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis, Dr. the Hon. Timothy Harris. The Hon. Lindsay Grant serves as Minister of Tourism, International Trade in the Prime Minister Harris’ cabinet.
