TRINIDAD & TOBAGO: Brian FRANCOIS
The hearing scheduled for 11 January 1993 in the cases of the two men named
above has now been postponed until 8 February 1993.
However, lawyers for the men expect a further delay after 8 February 1993,
as their cases will depend on the decision by the Court of Appeal on the
constitutional motion filed in the cases of Gayman Jurisingh, Peter Matthews
and Faizal Mohammed (for further information on these cases, refer to UA 351/92,
AMR 49/02/92, 11 November 1992, and follow-up AMR 49/01/93, 6 January 1993).
This decision is still pending.
Thank you to all those who sent appeals on their behalf. No further action
is required at the present time. We will advise the network if any future action
is necessary on their behalf.
