In that collage, contained the name and photos of a number of professionals including two judges, Justice Gino Persaud and Justice Simone Morris-Ramlall – a move which the judiciary has condemn.

“The Supreme Court of Judicature is calling on members of the public to refrain from associating Judges and Judicial Officers with any political party or activity,” a statement on Saturday noted.
