Evans settlement still to be finalised
A settlement between sacked education commissioner Freddie Evans, the Governor and the Government has still to be signed off.
It was revealed on Thursday that the parties had agreed to settle for an undisclosed sum over Dr Evansís dismissal.
Gregory Howard, who appeared for the Attorney-General, told Puisne Judge Stephen Hellman during a hearing in chambers that the agreement was expected to be signed that day.
Dr Evansís lawyer Mark Diel, of Marshall Diel & Myers, said yesterday that the agreement had not yet been signed.
He added: ďWe sincerely hope it will be signed off on Monday so that my client can get on with his life.Ē
Dr Evans launched legal action against the Governor and the Government after he was fired from his post by John Rankin in October last year.
Mr Diel claimed Dr Evansís sacking came too late to be valid.
He said Dr Evans could be fired by the Governor only during his probation period, which ended more than a week before Mr Rankin confirmed Dr Evansís dismissal.
The Government was asked if any disciplinary action would be taken and if not, why not.
It was also asked what would be done to prevent a similar foul-up in the future.
There was no response by press time.
Government House declined to comment.
