-Withdraws Lawsuit Against Legislature

By R. Joyclyn Wea

The Deputy Minister for Press and Public Affairs at the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism (MICAT), has withdrawn his recent lawsuit filed with the Civil Law Court at the Temple of Justice against the 54th National Legislature.

Deputy Minister Fahngon on Thursday, September 21, 2018 filed a lawsuit against the leadership and members of the House of Representatives by and through its Speaker Bhofal Chambers, Deputy Speaker, Prince Moye, and all other authorized officers of that honorable body over an action of damages of wrong in the tone of two Million United States (US$2million) Dollars

It can be recalled that on September 7, 2018 at about 10.30 PM, Representative Edwin Snowe and Eugene Fahngon were embroiled in verbal altercations that stemmed from the arrest of staff of the Legislature identified as Kelvin Mattadi upon Fahngon’s order; out of which this lawsuit grew.

In the notice of voluntary discontinuance presented to the civil law court on September 25, 2018, Fahngon mentioned that his action to discontinue the lawsuit against the legislature is in keeping with section 11.6(a) of the civil procedure law (1LCLR).

It further noted “wherefore, plaintiff prays the honorable court to strike from the docket the above entitled cause of action with prejudice.”

Meanwhile, Fahngon is yet to provide detailed reasons for his action to voluntarily discontinue the lawsuit against the Legislature many people are of the opinion that he (Fahngon) fears he might lose the battle reason for him dropping the case.
