In 2014, Dr Brendan Bain – a professor at the University of the West Indies (UWI) sued the educational institution for defamation of character, and breach of his constitutional rights.

Professor Bain took legal action after he was controversially relieved of his duties as Director of the Regional Coordinating Unit of the Caribbean HIV/Training Network.

He was fired after lobby groups from across the Caribbean expressed their outrage over testimony he gave in a constitutional challenge brought by a gay Belizean man against that country’s criminal code in September 2010.

His sacking triggered widespread debate with many persons condemning Dr Bain for voicing his opinions publicly while others claimed scientific freedom of expression in the academic community was being stifled.

This afternoon (July 31), a court reportedly ordered that the UWI pay restitution of $4.27 million plus costs due in lieu of three months notice.

According to RJR, the court found that Professor Bain’s termination was a breach of his right of freedom of expression.
