Breaking news:

IN A shock move, Trinidad and Tobago’s prosecution this afternoon dropped the charges against T&T’s Chief Justice Satnarine Sharma.

Sharma had been charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice in the State’s case against former Prime Minister Basdeo Panday, who was convicted of failure to disclose a London account on three consecutive years.

The Government’s case against the Chief Justice is believed to be unprecedented in the Commonwealth and has divided opinion in the country’s legal fraternity and in the population at large.

The State’s case against Sharma hinged on the evidence of the country’s Chief Magistrate Sherman McNichols, who was about to be sworn in when the prosecutor, Gilbert Petersen, SC, said: “Because of the position indicated by the witness, we will not be proceeding further with this prosecution.”

Only last week, it was revealed that the State had given consideration to starting new impeachment proceedings against Sharma relating to the Panday case.
