House Call


Share post:

THE BATTLE to save or destroy the house of the man who wrote the music of the National Anthem engages the attention of the High Court tomorrow when attorneys from the Solicitor-General’s Chambers square off against attorney Douglas Trotman and the grandson of Roland Edwards, Randolph Woodroffe.

The new twist comes as officials from the Environmental Protection Department (EPD) wait in the wings to demolish the building in Chapel Street, Speightstown, St Peter, which has been on its hit list since 2003.

Yesterday, Trotman was served with court documents alerting him to an urgent application from the Solicitor General, who is seeking to remove an injunction from 2008 which stayed the last attempt by the EPD to tear down the structure. (HLE)
