(Challenging Belize’s Immigration Law)

Thursday, July 24, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: This morning, a short case management conference was held between the parties in the original jurisdiction case of Maurice Tomlinson vs. Belize and Trinidad and Tobago before the Caribbean Court of Justice.

Tomlinson, a gay Jamaican residing in Canada, is asking the court to overturn provisions of each country’s immigration law which he says discriminates against him by prohibiting him from entering Belize, despite his visiting both countries before he came to know of the law.

Each country’s legal team is to file its defense by September 16, but no date has been set for the actual trial.

Tomlinson received special leave to file the application earlier this year after failing to get his native Jamaica to apply on his behalf.
