Notice: Apology re litigation and lawyers


In an interview with ETV on Monday, 12 November, 2012, Residents’ Association Committee member, Hilton Thorpe, was asked among other things, whether this was likely to lead to litigation.

He replied that it was too early to say, but that a popular perception was that the only people who benefited from litigation were the lawyers.

This led to am immediate objection by a member of the legal profession, who demanded an unqualified apology.

Hilton Thorpe regrets any hurt made by this remark, and any offence which this may have caused.
