Leave to appeal to the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) was granted in the McEwan case to Gulliver McEwan and the three other individual litigants on August 31, 2017.
In February 2017, the Guyana Court of Appeal delivered an oral decision dismissing the appeal by McEwan and others. Subsequently leave was sought to appeal to the CCJ.
In October 2017, the Court of Appeal will hear the application by the appellants to be regarded as ‘poor persons’ who are not liable to provide security for costs in the CCJ.
It is hoped that CCJ will hear this appeal during the course of 2018.
