I am trying to prepare for a Jamaican Asylum case where the Client was a previous Yardie Informer for Scotland Yard. I am trying to find a Country Expert on Jamaica but have had no joy on EIN/ILPA and have resorted to Google but with no joy – anyone had any experience on this?
Try having a look through old Jamaican cases and CG cases, see if any of the experts seem suitable then Google them? I haven’t used any Jamaican experts myself, sorry.
Brilliant – thank you!
I have a potential Jamaican asylum client I need to refer, if you have capacity and would be interested in looking at her case on a legal aid basis, please contact me.
I have put the details on a post here: http://www.freemovement.org.uk/forum/subject/legal-aid-referral-unlawful-ex1-decision-also-possible-jamaican-asylum/
Hilaire Sobers is very good – I used him in a case similar to yours. His mother is also a Jamaica expert, I don’t know if she is still working but her name is Yvonne McCalla Sobers.
Assuming you don’t need someone who is personally UK based, Dr Brian Meeks is also meant to be good although I’ve not used him myself: brian.meeks[at]uwimona.edu.jm
I am trying to prepare a Jamaican asylum case for a reggae and dancehall musician. I have been trying to locate a Jamaican country expert but had no joy from those listed above. Like Steph I am resorting to Google, again with little luck.
Does anyone know of other Jamaican country experts I could try contacting.
