Dr Brown: ‘Will Appeal This Surprising Decision’

May 7, 2019

“We are surprised that the judge considered to be ‘conflicts’ justifying the removal of the patients’ lawyers, situations which are commonplace in Bermuda,” Dr. Ewart Brown said, adding that “we will appeal this surprising decision.”

This is the latest development in the situation regarding the investigation into the BHCS and Brown-Darrell medical clinics, which are owned by former Premier Dr Ewart Brown, with patients — whose records were seized by the police in 2017 as part of the investigation into the clinics — seeking the return of their private medical files.

Dr. Brown said, “The decision to remove lawyers Mark Pettingill and Victoria Greening from their roles as advocates for the patients has come as a shock.

“Chancery Legal, beginning with the late Shawn Crockwell, has represented our patients for more than two years. The Police did not raise the issue of conflict until Chancery Law questioned their integrity.

“We are surprised that the judge considered to be ‘conflicts’ justifying the removal of the patients’ lawyers, situations which are commonplace in Bermuda.

“It is true that QC Jerome Lynch remains on the case but he has always taken instructions from Pettingill and Greening. We will appeal this surprising decision.

“Our fight will continue as long as our enemies are committed to the destruction of my business and the assassination of my character. Truth crushed to earth will rise again.”
