IMC’s planned takeover of Guyana cricket
GEORGETOWN, GUYANA - An interim injunction, granted by Acting Chief Justice Mr Ian Chang S.C. against the Guyana Cricket Board, preventing that body from performing duties on behalf of the board, has been challenged by the defendants.
And in accordance with an application that the defendants be given leave to file an affidavit in answer to have the injunctive order discharged, the matter came up for hearing yesterday and was fixed for March 19, before the Chief Justice at the High Court.
Before the matter was discussed yesterday, the parties also discussed a preliminary point.
The Government-implemented Interim Management Committee (IMC) has temporarily taken over the governance and administration of the cricket, according to a disclosure by Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs Anil Nandlall on Thursday.
According to Nandlall, players’ organisations and other cricket stakeholders will now have to consult with the IMC as the legal entity before any significant decisions are made. The hearing yesterday took place in the Judge’s Chambers.
Only the lawyers connected to the parties were in attendance.
The injunction allowed for searches of properties belonging to Chetram Singh, Lionel Jaikaran, Ramsay Ali, Fizul Bacchus, Anand Sanasie, Dru Bahadur, Anand Kalludeen, Collin Europe, Troy Mendonca, Terrence Holder, Rayon and Naximul Drepaul.
