The Rohee gagging issue
“The ruling by Chief Justice Ian Chang affirms that as an elected Member of Parliament, Rohee could not be gagged. I share this opinion and, indeed, no one objected or protested when Rohee voted on issues, which is a form of speech in Parliament.
“Whether he could speak as Home Affairs Minister in the face of the no-confidence motion touching and concerning his discharge of that portfolio is another matter,” said Alliance for Change (AFC) Executive Member Moses Nagamootoo. Kaieteur News, Jan13, 2013.
Moses Nagamootoo agrees that Clement Rohee cannot be gagged, because he is an elected MP. If it can be reasonably to assume that Clement Rohee is the Minister of Home Affairs because he has been elected as an MP, can it be reasonably posited that he can be gagged, on some other count?
It will be interesting to see how this scenario plays out.
