Screen shot 2014-05-13 at 7.31.52 PMThe acting town clerk has employed additional security as she complains about threats on her life as the battle for the chair of town clerk continues.

This newscast understands that former policeman Shawn Hinds who has had issues with the law in the past is currently providing security for Sooba.

While the council is finding difficult to have Sooba demit the office Sooba told this newscast that she has no intention to give up her chair as town clerk.

The council unanimously voted out Sooba with Royston King taking over her post, but Sooba is getting the full backing of the government.

Sooba moved to the appeal court to have a stay of execution of  chief justice Ian Chang’s ruling, that matter with be heard on Thursday.

The chief justice made it clear in his ruling that the former minister  Ganga Persaud had no authority to appoint any Local Government officer earning above a certain salary and the position of town clerk fell within that bracket.
The CJ added that Sooba could remain in the Town Clerk position as a de facto (not legally bound) officer since the hiring body the Local Government Commission was not in place. However King has moved back to the court, appealing certain aspects of the ruling.
