PM Encourages Church to Appeal; Pastor Stirm Says They Can’t

Updated: August 17, 2016

Interested parties in the ruling of Section 53 have until the end of the month to submit an application for appeal of the Chief Justice’s ruling.  Prime Minister Dean Barrow shared two correspondences from the churches’ association asking that he appeal on their behalf.  Prime Minster reiterated their decision not to appeal but explained the options available.


Pastor Scott Stirm, however, spoke to Love News and says that they have been advised by their counsels that they would not be able to appeal.


A window of 21 days remains open until August 31 for an appeal to be submitted.
