St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): A SCASPA security officer who was suspended when he denied his CEO access to a restricted area when he failed to produce his SCASPA-issued identification, has won a judicial review in the St Kitts High Court on Friday.

His Lordship, Mr Justice Eddy Ventose ruled that the decision of the SCASPA CEO, Denzil “Don” James was ultra vires (an invalid excess of authority or power) and that Francis was entitled to his salary with interest.
