Court hearing for Budget cuts stalled


chang-216x300Chief Justice [ag] Ian Chang has decided to await the outcome of Opposition Leader David Granger’s appeal on his decision to exclude him from the Budget cuts case.


This is according to Attorney General [AG] Anil Nandlall, who feels that the appeal has no merit but is simply another tactic being used to delay the final ruling on the budget cuts.

The AG is hopeful that the matter with the appeal will be heard and determined quickly so that proceedings can resume on the substantive matter.

He also holds the view that the appeal is a very strange legal precedent and not one that can be recalled in recent Guyanese history.

Earlier this week A Partnership for National Unity [APNU] announced that Leader David Granger would be appealing his exclusion from the budget cuts.

Granger and Finance Minister were excluded from the case as they are both parliamentarians and therefore cannot be sued. [Delicia Fletcher]
