Gay day at the CCJ: Round 2, Day 1

Check back later for our blog on more details on today’s hearing of the CARICOM treaty challenges to the immigration laws of Belize and Trinidad and Tobago held at the Caribbean Court of Justice all day today. Three witnesses, the applicant Maurice Tomlinson and the acting immigration directors of both countries were cross-examined. Then Tomlinson’s lawyer, Trinidad & Tobago Senior Counsel Douglas Mendes, was grilled by the judges for almost three hours. Belize solicitor general Nigel Hawke concluded his statement and the court adjourned to tomorrow at 9am T&T time, when Trinidad & Tobago will present their case and CARICOM will also make arguments.
