Lawyers Bill deferral welcomed

The Legal Practitioners Bill is now on ice and critics of the legislation have welcomed Government’s decision to hold off on the bill at least for now.
One of those critics, attorney Selina Tibbetts, welcomes the bill’s deferral. In fact she says Government was left with no other option.

Ms Tibbetts made her voice heard at last week’s consultation at Family Life Centre questioning Government’s rush on the bill, as well as, the limited time given for public review and comment.

“It’s gonna shape the future of Cayman quite significantly especially in this industry, but the financial services industry in general so you know we really do want to do the best we can to get this right and not just pass something for the sake of passing something, but pass something because we believe is something best for the jurisdiction,” Ms Tibbetts.
She says the decision to defer the bill was wise. Ms Tibbetts is calling for an independent committee to review suggestions before advancing the bill.

Ms Tibbetts says a formal document with amendments to the bill will be presented to Financial Services Minister Wayne Panton by November 10 for approval.
