Claudius “Cocom” Letang who lost an appeal against former Prime Minister Edison James was ordered to pay him and his legal team $2,000 for the cost of that appeal.
The two appeared before the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court of Appeal today where the judges dismissed Letang’s appeal and remitted the matter to the High Court of Justice for trial.
The case surrounds an alleged defamatory statement which Letang made in 2008 where he allegedly accused James of owning a hotel in Barbados on a local radio station.
Seasoned lawyer Don Christopher represented James while Heather Felix-Evans sided Letang.
