Nandlall also repsented Jury foreman.

shot0011Another twist in the jury foreman issue as information shows that Vernon Griffith the jury Foreman in the 2008  Lusignan massacre trial. was represented by the law firm of Attorney General Anil Nandlall in 2011 and at the time he was represented by that firm AFC Chairman Hughes had represented the defendant in the said matter.. Griffith was banned from jury selection for life after it was discovered after the trial that he was a client of Defence Attorney Nigel Hughes. Hughes had represented the # 2 accused in the trial. The action by the trial judge came after he had asked the jurors to declare any connection to the attorneys in the case and Griffith failed to so disclose.

Afc Leader Khemraj Ramjattan at the party press conference there. Ramjattan who said Hughes is being unfairly targeted by some of the comments on the matter said the particular issue was addressed at a Bar association conference.

Griffith , Ramjattan acknowledged was represented by Hughes in 2006 and that matter he says has been completed. He has since placed Griffith at the site of a PPP protest against calls by the Opposition for the removal of Home Affairs Minister clement Rohee.

Many persons in the media and social media sites have said that Hughes ought to have said something. There are others however who believe that Griffith may have been there to ensure a certain result.

In the trial the men accused were found not guilty, a decision the State has since appealed the acquittal of the two accused.
