Court bars Guyana Cricket Board from operating
Justice Sandra Kurtzious on Wednesday granted an injunction barring the entire Executive of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) from operating.
The ruling came in the wake of the passage of the controversial cricket administration bill earlier this month which seeks to bring order to the sport which has been riven by debilitating controversies in recent years.
The Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) had challenged the validity of the elections of the GCB held in January 2013 which was observed by the West Indies Cricket Board’s (WICB) Imran Khan, Paul Slowe and Conde Riley.
On consideration in Chambers of the plaintiffs’ case and after hearing counsel from both sides, Justice Kurtzious also barred all of the defendants from representing Guyana at the West Indies Cricket Board.
The order took effect from yesterday when it was entered by lawyers Rex H. Mc Kay S.C., Fitz L. R. Peters and Sandil S. Kissoon.
