St Clair case thrown out


IT’S BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD for ‘barefoot preacher’ Rev William St Clair, but he will have a home for the holidays.

Today, High Court judge William Chandler threw out the cases he brought against three individuals, stating they were not the ones to be sued.

The matter has been adjourned until January 6, 2015, but the Methodist Church has agreed to allow St Clair and his family to remain in the Ebenezer manse until January 15.

Rev St Clair had filed suit against Rev. Cuthbert Edwards, president and superintendent of the Methodist Church of Barbados for breach of contract, and against Ebenezer circuit stewards Roger Marshall and David Harewood for attempted eviction.

His attorney Hal Gollop Q.C. said he would amend the suit and would now be naming the Methodist Church in the Caribbean and the Americas and the Methodist Trust Corporation of Barbados Inc. (MB)
