Criminal Case Could be Thrown Out Based on Court’s Ruling
Hamilton, Bermuda, – Dr. Ewart Brown’s legal team heads to Bermuda’s Supreme Court this week to argue that the constitutional rights of the Former Premier have been violated.
The proceedings are scheduled for an entire week starting Monday, June 5, 2023. King’s Counsels Delroy Duncan and Jerome Lynch represent Dr. Brown, with Judge Martin Forde from the United Kingdom presiding over the hearing.
A spokesperson stated, “This week’s matter is not a criminal trial. It is a constitutional hearing during which Dr. Brown’s attorneys will present arguments to the court that their client’s constitutional rights have been violated. If the court rules that Dr. Brown’s rights have been breached, then the Judge has the authority to throw out the entire case if he chooses.” The spokesperson continued, “This is another step on the long road to vindication for Dr. Brown. We are hopeful that justice will prevail.”
