Former Magistrate Omeyana Hamilton, in a writs of Certiorari and Mandamus which was filed yesterday before Justice Dianne Insanally, is claiming that she was not afforded due process or a fair hearing when she met with Chancellor Carl Singh (ag) and Mr. Ganga Persaud.The motion was filed by Attorney at law Nigel Hughes.Hamilton was sacked with immediate effect on Tuesday.In her affidavit of support, Hamilton said that she met with the two members of the Judicial Service Commission,China Jerseys For Sale, after a complaint was made by Acting Chief Magistrate Priya Beharry.Hamilton said that she believes that the Chancellor should not have been at the meeting, when considering the complaint of the Chief Magistrate, since “he had previously heard and determined my request not to travel to Bartica by speedboat.”Further, in the affidavit,NFL Jerseys Cheap, she stated that the Chancellor’s direction to magistrate Hamilton, to travel by speedboat even after he was informed about her medical issues, had placed himself in the position of the complainant and would not have properly sat to commence an investigation into the complaint of the Chief Magistrate.
