Doyen of the Political Class Attorney at Law Sir Richard Cheltenham Ignores the Court

Submitted by 4Justice
SIR Richard Cheltenham, senior legal officer of the Barbados Court and Barbados Labour Party (BLP) Elder

Has Sir Richard Lionel Cheltenham KA., KC, Ph.D been called by the Disciplinary Committee of the Barbados Bar Association for grave professional misconduct and is in breach of 22 of the clauses of the Legal Profession Act?

The Barbados legal eagle was ordered by the disciplinary Committee to submit a sworn affidavit to the complaint #31 0f 2020 and appear for the hearing of the complaint. How could such a case escape the media when other attorneys in breach with the same professional misconduct are being prosecuted and imprisoned?

Scott informed the committee that the Sir Richard, summoned called by this court, with status and authority of the High Court, will not be attending the second hearing in March.

The retiring elder King’s Counsel is to answer allegations which the Disciplinary Committee, on the face of the evidence and obvious breaches should be investigated. Evidence he gave in the High Court Suit 770 of 2008 by affidavit and later oral evidence in the trial are exceeding strong exhibits of his grave professional misconduct ordeal before the Committee.

Sir Richard failed to attend the first sitting last November and was represented by Alrick Scott KC. who with Ernest Jackman are cited in the complaint for serious misconduct that undermines the honor and integrity of the Registry and Judicial process. Scott informed the committee that the Sir Richard, summoned called by this court, with status and authority of the High Court, will not be attending the second hearing in March.

  1. One Question. Who is the CJ of Barbados? Add 2 + 2., if you get more than 4 or less than 4 then have your head examined.


  2. Why are these guys called KC when Barbados doesn’t have a King? Surely they should now be called President’s Counsel.


    • The KC thing is rooted in a ‘quark’ in the law. It was detailed by another KC/SC in the press last year.

    Xxxxxxxx

    BLACK PEOPLE ON THE 2 X 3 ISLAND HAS NO CREDIBILITY HENCE NO PRESIDENT COUNSEL.

    THE WHITE MAN OR WHITE WOMAN IS STILL THE GOD THE FOOLS WORSHIP.

    SLAVERY MENTALITY STILL EXISTS EVEN IN HIGH PLACES AND HIGH SOCIETY.


  4. @David, it would have been very useful if @4Justice was more forthcoming on exactly what is the “misconduct” alleged for Dr Cheltenham considering he or she took the time to highlight this case.

    The article currently is simply ‘sensational’ and panders to our base Bajan instinct of being ‘malicious’ … as there is nothing one can reasonably discuss other than throwing shade (like the comment that his brother is CJ and such)!

    The fact that the man did not attend the hearing or does not plan to attend another hearing is relevant only if he was mandated to attend despite the presence of his lawyer and refused! Is that what’s being alleged… then he can be fined and held in contempt like any other person if he breaks the law, fah sure.

    Anyhow, a nice lil addition to ‘Daze in our Courts’!

    The SC or KC is mere posturing from those with the title. It’s a recognition of seniority and long term skill primarily but of course has it links to political party affiliations, elite friendships and such. It guarantees higher fees and other perks at the bar …

    … so what is the bad-word long talk about WHICH puppeteer is pulling your strings! … Any lawyer grounded and self aware absolutely will change all letterheads and immediately designate his QC to SC based on our new Republican status … if he or she is NOT so grounded and still adores his status descriptions in ‘Who is Who’ legal magazines and the Societies in England and Commonwealth then he or she will continue as the CJ said to “anomalously remain QCs [KCs]” and be “the laughing stock of the world” because despite being “just proclaimed [ourself] a republic” dem still baziodeed by the royal BS!

    A ridiculous pappy-show!!

      Several blogs have been posted on the matter in this space. One needs to be attentive?

      Search BU for ‘Everton Cumberbatch’.


  5. @David, are your lawyers searching your office as we speak or have already searched your various office ??😎😎

    Do YOU have any classified labelled docs that you should not have!!!

    Jesus, Mary and Joseph … what’s this madness about officials taking classified docs to their homes!

    What about Speaker Pelosi, McConnel and the rest … when will this obviously lax and badly managed comedy routine get serious!


  6. Something is not right..
    Google the following to see a gap in logic
    On 30 November 2021
    🇬🇧 Flag of the United Kingdom was lowered ⬇️
    🇧🇧 Flag of Barbados was raised ⬆️
    Barbados transitioned from a parliamentary constitutional monarchy under the hereditary monarch of Barbados (Queen Elizabeth II) to a parliamentary republic with a ceremonial indirectly elected president as head of state.Elizabeth II was Queen of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms from 6 February 1952 until her death in 2022. She was queen regnant of 32 sovereign states during her lifetime, and was head of state of 15 realms at the time of her death….

    King’s Counsel
    In the United Kingdom and in some Commonwealth countries, a King’s Counsel during the reign of a king, or Queen’s Counsel during the reign of a queen, is a lawyer who is typically a senior trial lawyer.

    Therefore (∴) (is generally used before a logical consequence, such as the conclusion of a syllogism.)

    There is no such thing as Kings Counsel or Queens Counsel
    They do not exist

    Problem is that none of these named individuals can declassify!!

    Trump however can and by the mere act of takin them with him, his documents are declassified!!


  8. Having knocked around the courts for upwards o a quarter century, I can name atleast 4 other knights who are also KCs that want locking up.


  9. “The blogmaster is currently on timeout’ from the US News space.”

    the US gun murder rate goes Up! Up! Up! every hour every day
    making Barbados look cool and calm
    and less random more professional


  10. Barbados recorded two deaths from COVID-19 from January 7 to 20, to take the overall death toll to 571 from the viral illness.

    During that period, there were 252 new cases from 1 940 tests and 16 people were hospitalised.


  11. Slightly off topic but also slightly on topic is the recent report by University of Manchester uncovering institutional racism in UK Judiciary which was pretty obvious to anyone who spoke to black folks anyway, but what did expect from the perpetrators of the colonial legacy of global white supremacy racism crimes to humanity that still lingers on and stinks like bad shit. … Google it if you don’t believe me.


  12. Famous amos everywhere…what a shame and disgrace….a worldwide spreading stain…world class…first world…

    ‘An attorney’s failure to adequately research authorities before taking action constitutes gross negligence, and requires disbarment, but the law in Barbados is weak, corrupt and useless when it comes to the administration of justice.”
