Rohan James resiles from contempt proceedings against JCF heads
KINGSTON, Jamaica— In a case management hearing before the Supreme Court to address other issues concerning the case between embattled Police Federation Chairman Rohan James and Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Andrew Lewis, James instructed his attorney to resile from contempt proceedings.
These proceedings were filed on December 19 of last year and announced by James publicly through his attorney.
This decision came on the heels of the Court of Appeal’s ruling in the matter in which the court set aside the stay of interdiction.
A number of dates have been set for the filing of documents in respect of the case management of the matter.
The substantive matter is yet to be heard as an additional application for leave to appeal other aspects of the matter filed by ACP Lewis.
ACP Lewis is represented by King’s Counsel Peter Champagnie and Attorney-at-law Neco Pagon.
Corporal James is represented by Hugh Wildman.
The substantial hearing remains to be heard but until then Rohan James remains interdicted
