Archie on vacation
Chief Justice Ivor Archie has left the country to proceed on vacation leave for the next seven weeks.
Archie's leave, effective Tuesday, ends May 9, 2018.
Archie opted to proceed on vacation leave instead of a sabbatical after Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley indicated that there was no authority under which he could proceed on the six-month leave.
While Rowley maintained that there was no provision for such leave for any member of the Judiciary, then President Anthony Carmona stood beind his decision to grant the leave.
In his absence, Justice Allan Mendonca will perform the duties of the Chief Justice.
