AG says he’s humbled, after no-confidence vote defeated by Law Association

“I am humbled.”
Those were the words of Attorney General Reginald Armour, SC, after a no-confidence vote against him was defeated by members of the Law Association on Friday evening.

In a media release on Friday night, Armour said, “I am humbled by the outcome of today’s (Friday’s) Special General Meeting of the LATT. I am grateful for the vote of confidence by the majority and I acknowledge and respect the concerns of those in the minority.

“I wish to thank my colleagues in the legal fraternity for taking the time to participate in the process. In addition, I would be remiss of me to acknowledge the Law Association for the manner in which it managed the entire matter.”

The no-confidence motion, along with a call for him to resign, were held at a special meeting at the Hyatt Regency in Port of Spain.

When Armour became AG, two of the defendants in the Piarco Airport matter in Miami, Brian Kuei Tung and Steve Ferguson filed an application to have him disqualified since all civil litigation of the State must be brought in the name of the attorney general and Armour was once an attorney representing Kuei Tung.

He was automatically disqualified by the Miami court but has since appealed that decision.
