By itself it may not mean much, but given that Carvil Duncan has all these constitutional protections, what about ordinary citizens?”The opposition leader is of the position that if the government can get away with the removal of a constitutional post holder, then it can get away with anything when ordinary people have to engage with the government.President David GrangerDuncan was suspended pending the outcome of the tribunal which comprises Justice Roxanne George-Wiltshire,Cheap NFL Jerseys, Justice (retd) Winston Patterson and Attorney-at-Law, Robert Ramcharran.
