Air Terminal Services Employees Trust chair, Jai Dhir Singh has been charged with Contempt of Court for a statement he allegedly made during the ATS strike saga.
He was served with the court papers last week Friday at his home in Sydney and is now calling on the support of the ATSET members.
FBC News believes he made the statement at a press conference in Nadi on the 19th of last month allegedly making allegations against the Judiciary saying it’s controlled by one Minister.
Despite the legal action, he continues to make statements that he has to date not proved.
Singh says he stands by his statement despite not having proved his allegations.
“All of the judicial department is controlled by one Minister. That’s all it is. Nothing more nothing less. Is it true the Minister controls the Justice department, Minister of Justice? Is it true or not true? "
FBC News this week received a copy of an ATSET bulletin which shows the ATSET chair calling on its members for their support to stand by him as he stood by them during their time of need.
When questioned by FBC News what he meant by this, he says the call was to remind workers to remain united.
“And this bulletin is telling them that united behind me is you have one voice to look at what’s happening to the chairman of the trust and that’s how it’s supposed to be seen. Become united within the workforce and for the betterment of ATS itself. "
Singh says he will fully defend his case which will be represented by Lawyer Aman Singh.
