Judiciary: We won’t be swayed

Monday, May 5 2014

THE Judiciary has noted in a release its sadness and grave concern on the violent attack and murder of Dana Seetahal SC in the early hours of yesterday morning. “As a former Judicial Officer, as a well respected and experienced member of the Bar and as an Advocate before the Court, Seetahal was well known and regarded by members of the Judiciary. We extend our most sincere condolences to her family, her friends and her colleagues,” the statement read.

While, at this time, there is no established motive for this heinous act, it cannot escape attention that Ms Seetahal has appeared frequently in the criminal courts both as a prosecutor and as a defence attorney.

The release added, “In this regard and mindful of the unfortunate murder last week of someone who, after attending a hearing at the Arima Magistrates’ Court, was brutally gunned down within yards of the Court entrance, the organisation wishes to emphasise that the Judiciary, its Judges, Magistrates and other officers, will not be swayed from their commitment to carrying out their mandate without fear or favour and will be equally faithful to the principles of a fair hearing for all, in accordance with the Rule of Law.

“We are confident that the relevant authorities will ensure that this particular act as well as any act that may tend to interfere with the delivery of justice, free and fair, will meet with swift and decisive action,” the release ended.
