Judge to make ruling in Richard Frederick’s case tomorrow

A judgement will be made tomorrow at the High Court, regarding the motion filed to have ousted United Workers Party (UWP) member Richard Frederick reinstated.

St. Lucia News Online (SNO) understands that Justice Darshan Ramdhani is expected to preside over the case and will hand down a judgement tomorrow.

The judgement will decide whether leave will be granted for the court to hear the case.

The motion was filed with the High Court on October 24, by Chairman of the Castries Central Constituency group of the UWP Mark Louis.

The motion also seeks to block the move to endorse a new candidate for Frederick’s current seat.

The plaintiff’s argument is that proper disciplinary procedures were not followed in Frederick’s case, which led to his expulsion. 

UWP leader Allen Chastenet, General Secretary Oswald Augustin and party Chairman Ezechiel Joseph were present for court yesterday. All three men were served with the document.

The decision could prevent the UWP from conducting its annual National Convention, which is due to take place on Sunday, in Gros Islet, if favour in granted to the plaintiff.

The UWP National Council had voted to expel Frederick on Sunday, August 17. Frederick has claimed that his expulsion was triggered as a result of dictatorship in the party.

The UWP Convention will decide on a new leader for the UWP. Incumbent leader Allen Chastenet and Dr. Claudius Preville will be battling for the top post.

  1. The United Workers party and St.Lucia by extension is better off without Richard Frederick. ONCE HE CAN'T HAVE HIS OWN WAY HE CREATES PROBLEM. With KING he could have done what he wanted, but can't have his way with CHASTANET. Go Chastanet, go Chastanet, be a democratic leader, but be firm

  3. Everytime there is a rowrow within uwp or part of uwp Richard is invoved why? this seems to be a domestic relationship. Time for ALL of this to stop and it can only end by separating one from the other.

    Fools always remains fools, criminals are criminals just as lawyers always remains as a lawyer. All we want is peace not rowrow upon rowrow. can't take it no more.

  5. Laba is terrified of Chastanet so you see the justice system moving at such a fast pace so that they can fuck up the UWP just before November 02 convention. Now this monkey has been added to the mix to kill the UWP. Corruption is right there in your face but you choose to close your eyes.

  7. He was wrongfully dismissed. Chastenet knows very well that Richard would not put up with his behavior, so he had to fire him. But he must be given the opportunity to VOTE on Sunday. He is still innocent until proven guilty. So far, there is no evidence to prove what the SLP has characterized him to be. This was just a nasty election propaganda used by the SLP administration to win the election. Where is the DAMN proof???They went all the way to the US embassy to tarnish his name. Richard has done nothing wrong and he deserves a place in his party.
