The Law Association has filed its lawsuit against Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley over his decision to reject its investigation into misconduct allegations levelled against embattled Chief Justice Ivor Archie.
The association’s legal team filed its judicial review application in the High Court Registry at the Hall of Justice in Port-of-Spain, yesterday afternoon.
The issues surrounding Chief Justice Ivor Archie continued to be in focus Sunday, as Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley questioned the Law Association’s political affiliations and said it seemed as though the body had a problem with the CJ’s lifestyle.
The Law Association is urging caution and restraint on all sides over the one shot one kill policy.
In a statement, the council of the Law Association says the top is "correct in asserting the right of police officers to use deadly force in self-defence when fired upon.
The association adds a police officer who is about to be attacked does not have to wait for the suspect to strike the first blow of shot.
But it says the use of deadly force must always be proportionate to the threat posed to the police officer.
