Why did Chief Justice Roxane George take control of the injunction granted by Justice Navindra Singh and not the one granted by Justice Franklyn Holder? I know of no impediment, and more than a few compelling reasons why the Holder case should have been transferred to Milady’s Court.
Given that the CJ took the reins of the Mingo case from Justice Navindra Singh; found the Mingo declaration of 4th March unlawful; gave specific directions as to how the process of tabulation should occur, and is currently considering a motion against Mingo for contempt of her order, it is only proper and fitting that an injunction against a recount of ballots should gain her attention, as the most senior High Court Judge.
As an aside, Mr Mingo walks among us a free man, with no consequence levied for his contempt of the CJ’s clear ruling; the evidence of this is abundant in the reports of the Observer missions.
Editor, it may be that there is a hierarchy among the Judges in the High Court of which I am unaware, or a procedure of which I am ignorant; Justice Singh may not be of the similar stature as Justice Holder. I stand ready to be advised.
