High Court Judge Justice Brian Cottle has granted leave for the application of judicial review to question the appointment of the Dave Bruney on the Integrity Commission (IPO).
Last week an application challenging Burneys appointment was filed in court on behalf of Ambrose George and other members of Cabinet.
Senior Council Anthony Astaphan said the news is encouraging.
“I am very happy that he granted us leave to apply for judicial review to question Bruneys appointment. He agreed with us on the application that there were serious issues about Bruney being disqualified on the grounds that he held office in the United Workers Party up until April 2011,” he said.
Astaphan also said the judge has refused to grant an injunction to stop Bruney from sitting on the commission.
“That was well within the Judge’s discretion but we will look at it and see how we should approach it,” he added.
Counsel for the Opposition Mr. Gildon Richards says the Judge has made the right decision.
He described the allegations as frivolous and flimsy.
