Acting Director of Public Prosecutions Colin Williams is looking at the guilty verdict brought on radio announcer Elwardo Lynch as “enhancing” freedom of expression. He was speaking at a press conference last Wednesday morning.{{more}}

Williams trained in international relations, and journalism echoed his desire to freedom of expression. But he would not shy away from prosecuting anyone who violates the constitution.

A former Senator in the House of Assembly while the Unity Labour Party was in opposition, Williams was the centre of controversy on his appointment to the post of Acting Director of Public Prosecution.

Senior Magistrate Carl Joseph declined to preside over Lynch’s matter, ostensibly owing to perceived political implications.

Joseph, a former Attorney General, was defeated at the polls in the June 15, 1998 general elections in West St. George.
