Chief Justice Ivor Archie has deferred the controversial sabbatical leave upon which he was to embark this weekend.
The confirmation comes from the Office of the President.
A statement says Acting President Christine Kangaloo has been in communication with the Chief Justice and invited him to consider deferring a departure from the jurisdiction prior to the return of President Anthony Carmona to the country on Sunday 11th March, 2018.
The statement says that the Chief Justice has agreed to defer such departure.
The President's Office says the invitation was made in order to enable further communications to be had in relation to the Prime Minister’s letter to President Anthony Thomas Aquinas Carmona, dated March 7th, 2018.
