UWI to comply with injunction barring removal of Bain

We will comply.
     
That's the response from the University of  the West Indies, UWI, to the Supreme Court injunction restraining it from removing Dr Brendan Bain as Director of  the CHART Regional Coordinating Unit.
    
 In a notice in the press on Friday,  UWI said it will respect the ruling pending the outcome of  the application for administrative order, a claim for constitutional relief or further order.
     
The injunction was granted a week ago and will remain in effect until the hearing of  a lawsuit which has been filed.
     
Lawyers representing Bain want him to remain in the post pending the outcome of  the lawsuit challenging the termination of  his contract.

Bain was issued termination letter by the UWI in May after gay-rights ‎groups and sympathisers pressured the university following his expert evidence in a case in Belize, where a gay man had challenged the constitutionality of law that makes it a criminal act for men to have sex with each other.
