Justice Bertrand Morrison’s Ruling on SOEs Being Unconstitutional

Justice Bertrand Morrison, in a judgment published on Friday, ruled that the month’s long detention without charge of five men under the State of Emergency (SOE) was unconstitutional. That ruling has thrown into doubt the long term usage of SOEs as a crime-fighting measure under the Andrew Holness Administration. So, what are the implications of the ruling? And is the government now exposed to compensation claims? To discuss the landmark ruling, we are joined by two of the Attorneys At Law that won the case, John Clarke and Isat Buchanan.
