Linton says amounts in excess of that needed for his court fees, will go to Salisbury residents defence
And Opposition Leader Lennox Linton says the balance of the funds raised in excess of the amount needed for his legal defence, will go towards the legal defence of the people of Salisbury. In a drive to raise $80,000 for Linton to pay Chartered Accountant Kieron Pinard-Byrne for defamation, over $100,000 has so far been contributed by Dominicans at home and abroad.
Linton, speaking on Q95's Hot Seat Friday, said, while he awaits the final cost determination from the Privy council, any remaining funds will go either towards covering the final costs and/or the legal defence for the Salisbury residents.
Some 52 residents of Salisbury have been taken to court by government, for protest action taken in that community in May and June last year. The residents have been protesting for repairs of farm access roads in their community, to be addressed by the Government.
