Bermuda Court of Appeal overturns Supreme Court ruling on Bermuda status application in Barbosa case

The Royal Gazette reported on 5 December 2016 that the Court of Appeal for Bermuda has set aside Mr. Justice Hellman’s Rulings in the Bermuda status application case of Barbosa.

The full judgment has not yet been published on the Judgments page of Bermuda Government’s website, but it appears from the newspaper report as if the Court of Appeal disagreed with Mr. Justice Hellman’s broad interpretation of section 11(5) of the Bermuda Constitution Order 1968, and took a more restrictive view instead.
