NFL Jerseys Outlet the Chief Justice said

– by D’Andra Lewars,http://www.soccerpro.us.com/FC-Bayern-Munich/, Norman Manley Law School If I’m a part of a club that cannot sue in law,Wholesale NFL Jerseys, can I bring a case as its representative?This was the question before the Caribbean Court of Justice in the appeal case taken by Robin Singh and Rajendra Singh against the Attorney General of Guyana in 2012.In an earlier decision,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, Chief Justice Ian Chang had stated that the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) and its affiliates were not capable of suing or being sued under the law. This,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, the Chief Justice said, made GCB a ‘legal non-entity’. The Chief Justice then went on to suggest that the Ministry of Sport in Guyana take control of national cricket administration in place of the GCB.The Ministry accepted the Chief Justice’s suggestion and took steps to implement it. Trustees of GCB, however,NFL Jerseys Supply, applied to the Court as representatives of GCB to quash the Ministry’s decision to control the national administration of cricket.The Chief Justice heard the application by the trustees and decided that the trustees had no power to bring a case on behalf of GCB to challenge the acts of the Government.The trustees appealed to the Full Court of Guyana. The Full Court agreed with the Chief Justice and also stated that the Full Court had no power to give leave to appeal to the Court of Appeal.Finally,NFL Jerseys Supply, at the Court of Appeal the trustees were told that the Court had ‘no jurisdiction to hear the matter’. The trustees appealed to the CCJ.The Judges of the CCJ first looked at the Guyana Constitution before interpreting any further law. As a result of their approach of holding the Constitution supreme, they resolved the problems by asking:How should an application to the Court, by representatives of an association, to stop the government from taking some action adverse to the interests of the association, be dealt with considering (1) the nature of the application (2) the nature of the order and (3) the Constitution?This question is crucial as the decision by the Ministry potentially affects the property rights and rights of the association of members of GCB. The CCJ recognized that such actions which affected constitutional rights demand that there be the right to appeal to a higher Court. According to the CCJ: “The seeking of such a public law remedy to prevent alleged unlawful abuse of public powers is of such significance in the light of Guyana’s Constitution that an appeal lies as of right to the Court of Appeal.”Therefore, the trustees should have appealed directly to the Court of Appeal rather than the Full Court. In order to rectify this procedural error, the CCJ gave the trustees an extension of time to appeal to the Guyanese Court of Appeal.
