(iWitness News) Lawyer Jomo Thomas today (Tuesday) expressed confidence that the Court of Appeal will rule against the government in its application for a stay of execution of the High Court decision in the vaccine mandate case.
A Court of Appeal judge will consider, today, the arguments for and against the application and Thomas said that a decision could be handed down immediately after.
“… I would assume that the judge who’s doing the analysis to decide on the stay would be making a decision today, which means that more than likely the judge would have already read the submissions,” Thomas said in his Plain Talk commentary on Boom FM.
Thomas is leading the legal team that represents the public sector workers fired under the COVID-19 vaccine mandate that the Ralph Gonsalves-led Unity Labour Party government implemented in December 2021.
Hundreds of public sector workers lost their jobs and the Teachers’ and Public Service unions as well as the Police Welfare Association have sponsored a lawsuit against the government, challenging the mandate.
