Petition to Drop Charges Against Former Premier Gaining some Support

TNN’s Trevor Lindsay caught up with Esme Williams, in front of City Hall garnering signatures from members of the public to have the charges against former Premier the Honorable Dr. Ewart Brown dropped. She said that the petition has been going really well since it was officially launched a few weeks ago.

“ [Signatories] have been quite enthusiastic and have said that enough is enough,” Ms. Williams said. “ We have not collected any of the outstanding petitions which are at the churches, but I know that, from what we’ve been doing, we’ve had quite a few in.”

Organizers originally planned to have the petition only throughout the month of February, but are extending it to the middle of March and possibly even longer.

“ This petition is to end the prosecution and persecution of Dr. Brown for ten years and more than $10 million have been spent,” Ms. Williams said as a reminder.

“ Since justice delayed is justice denied, Dr. Brown has already been denied justice and they are unable to find any charges to be able to convict him of anything so far. We want this petition to go to the Governor and have her pass it on to any appropriate judicial bodies in the U.K. to let them know that a segment of

Bermudians believe that enough is enough.”
In addition to outside of City Hall, petitions can be signed at Bermuda Healthcare Services, BIU Headquarters, the Brown-Darrell Clinic, Dub City variety store, Esso gas station at Crawl, the Leopard’s Club, North Shore Medical Center and all of the AME churches throughout the island.

The organizers plan to take the petition to Sandys soon to garner even more signatures.
