Cabral Douglas, the son of former Dominica Prime Minister Rosie Douglas, today disclosed in a release that he filed legal proceedings in the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) on August 24.
“I am pleased to announce that formal legal proceedings have been commenced at the Trinidad based Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) against the Government of Dominica on my behalf. Article 222 of the Revised Treaty requires natural persons and corporations seeking the original jurisdiction of the court to seek special leave to be heard. So I have done that and the Government of Dominica has been served the relevant documents…” Douglas, a lawyer by profession, said in the release.
“So after a long winded and unsuccessful negotiation process, I look forward to the opportunity to prove my case in Trinidad,” he added.
