Evans accepts new Government job
Freddie Evans, who was sacked as Commissioner of Education, is to take up a post in the Department of Youth, Sport and Recreation.
A government spokeswoman said last night: “The matter between the Bermuda Government and Dr Evans has been settled without recourse to a costly trial. By mutual agreement, the terms of the settlement are confidential.”
The spokeswoman added: “Dr Evans looks forward to utilising his skill set to further contribute to the youth of Bermuda.”
Dr Evans launched legal action against the Governor, John Rankin, and the Government after he was fired from his post by the Governor last October.
Dr Evans’s lawyer Mark Diel, of Marshall Diel & Myers, claimed Dr Evans’s sacking came outside his probation period and too late to be valid.
It was revealed on Thursday that the Government had agreed to settle for an undisclosed sum, thought to be in six figures.
