The supreme court ruled earlier today that the detention of five men under the state of emergency which has now ended was unconstitutional.
Courtney Hall, Everton Douglas, Nicholas Heat, Courtney Thompson and Gavin Noble were all released from custody, uncharged last month when the SOE ended.
The written judgment by the presiding judge justice Bertram Morrison says “The claimant’s constitutional rights and the constitution itself is being breached by the current detention and executive detention system.”
He further ruled that the detention order was also unlawful.
In addition, Justice Morrison has granted orders for the detainees to seek compensation.
