Governor says Brown action “invalid”

Posted: June 17, 2009 in Bermuda, bermuda politics

The Royal Gazette reports on Governor’s press conference:

The Governor reiterated that Premier Ewart Brown’s direct negotiations with the US to bring the Muslims to the Island — a process Sir Richard described as an “exchange of notes” — breached section 62 of the Bermuda Constitution.

He said: “Because it breaches the Constitution, this exchange of notes which was negotiated and sent on June 10, was in our view, invalid. In other words, the Bermuda Government’s action to solicit the arrival of the four Uighurs was unacceptable.

“I talked to the Bermuda Government yesterday, June 16, and suggested to them that they should now consider carefully their next steps.”
