Court halts Governor’s removal

The High Court has granted a temporary reprieve to Central Bank Governor Dr DeLisle Worrell after the embattled chief economist had reportedly been given until the end of today by Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler to resign or be removed from the job.

Attorney-at-law Gregory Nicholls, who is the Governor’s legal representative, confirmed to Barbados TODAY this morning that in response to court action he filed on behalf of his client, High Court Justice Randall Worrell last night granted a temporary injunction until Wednesday, barring the Governor’s removal for at least for another two days.
