EXPLAINING THE CONCEPT OF "JUDICIAL REVIEW" : THE HYATT CASE

Submitted by David Andre Comissiong, Citizen Advocate

The Claim or Application that was filed in the Supreme Court of Barbados on the 22nd of March 2017 entitled “David Andre Comissiong  v  Freundel Stuart, Minister Responsible for Town and Country Planning” constitutes an application for “Judicial Review” of the legality (or lack thereof) of the process by which the Minister Responsible for Town and Country Planning purported to grant permission to construct a 15 storey hotel on beachfront land at Bay Street, St. Michael.

However, it is clear to me from a number of the questions that have been posed to me since the filing of the Claim on 22nd March 2017 that there is not a very good popular understanding of this extremely important legal proceeding known as “Judicial Review”.

Basically, the power of “Judicial Review” is the power that the Supreme Court possesses to exercise scrutiny and control over the procedures that subordinate bodies (such as Ministers of Government and heads of Government departments) are required by law to undertake when exercising their decision-making and other functions.

Thus, in the case in question, the Barbadian citizen known as David Andre Comissiong has simply requested a Judge of the Supreme Court of Barbados to examine and scrutinize the process that the Minister Responsible for Town and Country Planning applied to the making of his decision to grant the permission in question, in order to determine whether the Minister adhered to all of the applicable rules and regulations.

The legal procedure known as “Judicial Review” is governed by the Administrative Justice Act, Chapter 109 B of the Laws of Barbados, and gives the Supreme Court the power to scrutinize and exercise control over any “administrative act or omission” of a “Minister, public official, tribunal, board, committee or other authority of the Government of Barbados exercising……. any power or duty conferred or imposed by the Constitution (of Barbados) or by any (statutory) enactment.”

And under Section 6 of the Act, the Court is empowered to entertain applications for Judicial Review that are made by any person “whose interests are adversely affected by an administrative act or omission” or “any other person, if the Court is satisfied that that person’s application is justifiable in the public interest.”

The background to my filing this particular Application for Judicial Review is that in August 2016 — after Mr. Mark Maloney had made a public statement asserting that the construction of a 15 storey Hyatt hotel would be commencing in September 2016 — I wrote to BOTH the Chief Town Planner and the Minister Responsible for Town and Country Planning expressing consternation at Maloney’s statement, and asserting that the Law of the land demanded that Maloney’s application be subjected to a physical and social “Environmental Impact Assessment” (EIA).

Needless to say, I received no response from either the Chief Town Planner or the Minister — not even a letter of acknowledgement of receipt of my letter!

Furthermore, Prime Minister Freundel Stuart — the Minister Responsible for Town and Country Planning — ultimately went ahead and simply granted Maloney’s company permission to construct their 15 storey hotel without having the benefit of the findings of an Environmental Impact Assessment to guide and inform him in the making of his decision.

It is against this background that I decided that it had become necessary to have a Judge of the Supreme Court of Barbados examine the manner in which Mr Stuart had dealt with the application of Maloney’s company, and determine whether Stuart’s decision was lawfully made.

It needs to be noted that there is a category of construction projects that require the carrying out of an Environmental Impact Assessment “before” any permission can be granted for them to go ahead. And this is so because these projects possess the potential to do serious damage to the precious physical and social environment of our beloved country.

It is therefore in the best interest of our country to have a Judge of the Supreme Court examine Mr Maloney’s project and its implications for the physical , social, cultural and heritage environment of Barbados, and determine whether the manner in which the Application for the project was processed by the Minister was in compliance with the standards and procedures required by the Laws of Barbados.

    Please bear in mind as well that it tends to be the legality or illegality of the procedure or process that is applied in making the decision that is at the heart of Judicial Review rather than the sensibleness of the decision itself. Although the Administrative Justice Act does also provide that an act or decision can be challenged on such grounds as unreasonable or improper exercise of discretion; fraud, bad faith or improper purposes; abuse of power…..etc

    @Bernard, at 2:44 AM, yes indeed a truly lawful society will also have accountability – good and bad.

    How many folks here realize that a crucial aspect of Pres Obama’s ACA Health Law is actually under judicial review at this moment. The aspect of law which gave grants to the ‘indigent’ as part of their health care deductible payments (and what keeps the entire thing functional) was challenged and OVERTURNED in court .

    It ONLY remains the law of the land by force of a current appeal…which the new government could ‘stay’ if they wish does catspraddling those grants …and the ACA.

    All that to say, societies always have the leeway to take the government to court.

    We remember Commission stopping the illegal enactment of the fingerprint legislation (the reasons may be practical and legal, the enactment of law was not); and we remember the US legal eagles did the same with their Muslim ban: took it to the courts.

    So one heartily commend Mr Commissiong for forging this path – as in days past with others – to circumscribe the lawless practices being enacted by this government.

    The rude question: if he asked for some operational funds in a go-fund-me appeal how many of us would subscribe $20.

    @Bushie, so from your 7:10AM I presume your broad-sides on the legal faculties at UWI and lawyers generally are tinged with some sort of grudging respect that they do serve a practical purpose. LOLL.

    BTW, I thought that we elected people, operated a parliament of laws and regulations and established a judicial system PRECISELY and SPECIFCALLY to ensure our actions were “executed against a background of being subjected to lawful examination”.

    Why continue this charade every frigging day of the five year process if this is in fact NOT happening!

    We might as well move on to ‘blissful anarchy’ if this is all a charade.

    The citizens of Barbados owe a great debt to comrade David Andre Comissiong.

    Comissiong should take a look at what is happening in French Guyana if he is serious about empowering the masses. There is something stirring in this country; the masses are taking to the streets. The population is saying “enough is enough!” (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-39557670)

    Spear heading this popular movement is a group of muscle bound negro brothers who call themselves “le 500 freres”. They recently smashed there way into a private meeting of 25 regional countries headed by a minister of France to grieve their anger at the state of their country. A Barbados representative was at the meeting. I would like to know if our papers reported on this incident.

    @ Bush Tea,

    When i was talking about a mature country. I was referring to countries such as France. A country that would be able to molly cuddle an immature country such as Barbados. I may have to retract that statement. We need to fend for ourselves.

    -The people who administer the law are the lowest of the lowe when it comes to ethics, morals and fairness
    -The teachers (Jeff & Co) of the law refuse to accept any responsibility for the lawyers’ ethical behaviour
    – The police are fed up with the clear and obvious miscarriages of justice
    – the public have no confidence in the system.

    France is one of the least developed countries in existence.
    Racist, immoral, aggressive, militaristic and materialistic.

    @ Jeff
    Where exists any mutual exclusivity?
    Surely you are not assuming that Bushie presumes that Barbados qualifies as ‘developed’.
    The instinctive conclusion is that the April 9 post explains why we are under-developed.

    If you extrapolate the concept of litigiousness in a ‘developed’ society, you are actually tending to a situation where there is NO need for lawyers – because everyone is educated in the Law and are so focused on its upkeep, that actions are only executed with premeditated consideration for its legality.

    “Proactive litigiousness” if you please….

    Wuh boss, you should like such a world – where the TEACHERS of the law are the key resources needed for proactive success…. rather than wasting time and resources by waiting to REACT to crime, to pay police, lawyers, courts, prison staff …..all after the fact (and costs) of crime – ….as we do now.

    Come on Vincent, you know that the fella Commie is nothing than a puffed-up attention seeker; nothing more than a revved up Bajan fowl-cock which tries to legally t(h)read every bare-neck hen in the current administration pen.

    Same damn thing applies to the new Ronnie other than the Jonesing one who tells it like it is when it comes to cracking heads and shooting people in the back.

    All puffed-up radicals ready to be sedated by the power of political position.

    What Commie is doing is not being able to see the financial forest for the legal trees and has given the current administration the perfect escape hatch down the scammers’ rabbit hole lined with judicial inertia and legal comatose.

    Why can this pro bono legal eagle working in the “people’s” interests not see he is playing right into the hands of the scammers? Maybe he is just a naïve idealist who refuses to look behind the financial veil to expose the scam called the real McCoy the Baloney NIS heist.
    If Commie is so altruistically working in the people’s interests why has he been so deafeningly silent on the whole CLICO scam?

    Aren’t many of the same players involved in the CLICO and the other scams to fleece taxpayers involved in this Hyatt thingie?

    Isn’t the old bosom pal of Greenverbs (the estimable gentleman) the new point man (who happens to be at the helm in the halls of government) for Baloney the unbelievably successful entrepreneur at using poor people’s savings to make astronomically huge risk-free profits?

    One would have to be a blindingly stupid eternal optimist to expect after the Pierhead marina redesign, Sugar Point cruise ship terminal, the Four Seasons guarantees, Andrews sugar factory and, more astonishingly, the Cahill scam there would be FDI coming from other than the Chinese loan-sharks to pour down a rat hole of fiscal incompetence and judicial paralysis.

    Let Maloney & Co register at least US$200 million in FDI with the Central Bank and you would see how fast Commie and the other jihadists accused of fighting foreign investment put their tails between their legs to protect their conspicuous consumption lifestyle and save their beloved Bubaydus from a 5:1 September devaluation sentence to economic death row unless the election bell rings before and extra time as a temporary reprieve is given to the new government.

    VH, it’s not a matter of being cynical but of being political savvy even if not Machiavellian.
    Why not go for the jugular and expose the hidden agenda?

    The fingerprint battle was an easy target with the procedure legally flawed from the outset.
    Even a first year law student could have spotted the ‘Unconstitutionality’ and ‘impractical’ ramifications for totally economic-dependent tourism destination.

    Aren’t national security issues (the reasons given for the fingerprinting project) just as pressing today as prevailed in 2015?

    Vincent, all the miller is asking of both Davids is that they take a helicopter approach to the matter and focus on the bigger picture; not the legalistic rabbit hole.

    As it stands, the Hyatt project has a lot of support on the economic front.

    Except for its proposed ‘unsightly’ location (should be where the car park is currently taking up some of the most expensive real estate in Bridgetown) it’s going to be very hard to fight and win a propaganda battle ‘with’ the public where the economic fortunes of the country are at stake.

    Why can’t Andre and his soldiers be more ‘targeted’ in their attacks by going for the bull’s eye and ask the most pertinent question about the Hyatt erection?

    Is the money required to finance the construction of the tower real FDI as previously included in the fired CB Guv’s calculations to increase foreign reserves and save the Bajan dollar from extinction?

    If not, would it be from local sources and who are the financiers?
    Where is the local money coming from and would it completely deplete the ‘fast’ dwindling residue of foreign reserves subject to fudging since 2013?

    Now those pertinent funding queries should put the financial lion among the scamming lambs hiding in the financial sheep pen.

    Once the money has to be shown then the flagellated Hyatt erection -like the Four Seasons of all promises and the Cahill nuclear reactor- would recede behind the investment horizon of detumescence leaving both Davids to hold the scapegoat baby and the BU jihadists for the millions foregone in economic recovery and development.

    The Hyatt baby would now have two fathers. One to witness the birth and the other (the godfather) to attend the grand opening of a christening.

    You can’t be more optimistic than that, Vincent, can you now?

    Once they can convince the brass bowl idiots about getting some ‘maid jobs sometime in the future’, they would have proceeded to advance funds from the NIS for plans, consultations, legal work, finder’s fees and commissions….. probably totalling in the region of $10M.

    The court would filter through this non issue of political interference by Comissiong and do what is in the best interest of barbados.

    You obviously didn’t go to school long or often. You feel the Court is a political kangaroo forum based on emotions?

    Can’t you see that Miller is back with the usual distracting nonsense?
    ….talking shiite about letting maloney show the money….
    Obviously this Hyatt shiite is a short-term political plan to extract some election funding.
    Once they can convince the brass bowl idiots about getting some ‘maid jobs sometime in the future’, they would have proceeded to advance funds from the NIS for plans, consultations, legal work, finder’s fees and commissions….. probably totalling in the region of $10M.”

    But Bushie, aren’t both of us on the same path to reveal the scam behind the Hyatt project?

    All the miller is doing is going straight for the fictitious financing jugular instead of the long-drawn out legal circumlocution which Jeff C would find most entertaining.

    How come you want to side with the law (which you pretend to despise) and not with more practical and effective approaches to exposing the obvious scam? Instead of taxpayers being scammed of $10 million we could as well save them $5 million, no so?

    Don’t be surprised if the usual suspects are engaged as legal eagles (Hal & Michael) to fight this Hyatt objection. Now join the dots to reveal a pattern starting with the Alexandra drama to ERT and even Greenverbs legal representation.

    Do you really feel that if Greenverbs couldn’t even initiate Walter PKK in the CLICO sanctum sanctorum of fraud and rearguard frolic (like he did to the Physical Deficit Jester Inch who wears his trousers up to his armpits to protect his ass{et}) do you really think that Florence’s great-grandson who went to school with you would fall flat on his face and expose his financial ass to an intellectual johnny called Sam Poochie?

    But before the miller leaves you to cogitate here is a piece of political reality you and your anti-Hyatt lieutenants would have to face head-on.

    Should the Baloney talking fella come up with foreign money sufficient to cover the construction cost of the hotel you can bet the vast majority of brass bowl Bajans would cuss poor Come-sing-along to high heavens where your imaginary BBE resides in order to save their sorry souls from the pending perfect economic storm on the horizon and already given the name “Devaluation”.

    Remember that the MoF Stinkliar has already counted the Hyatt erection as part of the FDI inflows for 2017 to stave off such a dreaded visitation Bajans would not even wish on their ‘ever-so-welcome wait-for-a-call’ fellow Caricom brothers and sisters.

    Would the new kid at the top of the Banking class, the clever Cleviston, be bold enough to listen to you and Come-sing-along and discount such future inflows to trigger the devaluation fly-stick?

    ACs…are idiots who claimed their husband who ran away, was a lawyer, but could not see the court will uphold an injunction based on the facts presented, they think judges are yardfowlminded and will just go with the bribery and corruption flow to have their names all over the internet for being biased.

    They have to follow the law and make a decision based on that law….retarded ACs.

    Hyatt will be restrained by the injunction until the substantive matter of the application has be heard at trial.
    Sam Lords Castle will also be restrained shortly. You cannot build on a permission which was for a a different hotel scheme and which expired and deemed to have lapsed.

    Barbados wants to put a stop to the likes of Lowe crying at a meeting of the NCC staff when he fired them thru the back door 2 years ago while it was reported in the media that he found jobs for his siblings,relatives and friends from the Ch Ch East constituency in the same NCC.Now that the NCC has added over 100 to their permanent staff Lowe singing a different tune.What about the promise of rehiring?What about those with several years service who were sent packing?Does this man deserve to be a member of parliament?Is this the behavior Stuart condones?Is this what Barbadians stand for?Lowe should never ever be again allowed to be elected to any public office in Barbados.He should be sent to Dodds as an inmate.Bloody swine and an ugly one at that.Gaul bline de rotten bay foot bag bline hoes name de Dems.
