PR applicant takes CIG to court over delay

| 06/12/2016 | 85 Comments

(CNS): Three years after government stopped hearing permanent residency claims because of a legal hurdle that officials seem unable to tackle, an applicant has finally turned to the courts for judicial review. Mark Edmunds, who works in the offshore sector and made his application to become a permanent resident two and a half years ago, is the first of some 800 people who are in limbo regarding their status on the islands to mount the inevitable court challenge.

Edmunds’ statement of claim outlines his legal challenge based on the Bill of Rights in the Cayman Islands Constitution and the European Convention on Human Rights (RCHR) but also pointed to the uncertainty of his life in Cayman and the “unwarranted stress” the situation has caused after such a long wait for a decision. While the offshore expert and his family have waited two and a half years, there are some applicants who have waited more than three, as no PR applications submitted after October 2013, when the law was changed, have been considered.

In his legal action Edmunds’ attorneys describe an unlawful but de facto moratorium on PR decisions that breaches a number of human rights and seek an order from the courts forcing the Caymanian Status and Permanent Residency Board or the chief immigration officer to hear his application and grant it and cover his costs and damages. He also points out that letters, including ones from his lawyers sent two months ago, have not been answered by government.

Edmunds, who is British-Bermudian, became a legal resident in Cayman in 2006 while working for Rawlinson & Hunter as a trust manager. He and his wife own two properties, and when he applied for PR he paid a fee of over $26,000. Describing the failure of the board and the chief officer to take over the responsibility for considering the applications as “wholly unreasonable”, the claim points to breaches of significant parts of the Constitution.

But the detailed statement by Edmunds (posted below) sums up the situation for hundreds of people who are awaiting a decision from the immigration department, while government wrestles with the challenges that its amended law presents after a finding by the chief justice that the points system for applicants’ jobs was arbitrary and unlawful.

CNS has attempted to contact Premier Alden McLaughlin, who has responsibility for immigration policy, but has been unsuccessful. Other government have told us that work is being done on this issue, though it appears there is no solution yet to the problem.

McLaughlin contracted local attorney and former immigration board leader, David Ritch, to undertake a review of the PR situation and is currently fighting tooth and nail to keep Ritch’s final report under wraps, claiming in a response to a freedom of information request that it is privileged legal advice. The Information Commissioner’s Office ordered the premier to release the document to them so they could carry out its work on the appeal to that FOI refusal, but that order has been ignored.

Speaking to Cayman 27 yesterday, Acting Information Commissioner Cory Martinson said Premier McLaughlin had issued a certificate of exemption blocking the ICO from viewing the report. The premier has taken the position that the review by Ritch is not in the public interest, despite the massive attention being paid to the ongoing and mounting serious problem impacting the lives of over 800 long-term residents on the islands.

He said that McLaughlin sent a “ministerial certificate” under Section 25 of the Freedom of Information Law blocking the handing over of the report.

This is the first use of that provision under the law and the ICO is not convinced that just because the premier has used this political privilege to define the record as exempt does not mean that they cannot view the document.

    How can we expect transparency in Government from a Premier who is part of an organisation (Freemasonry) whose entire existence is based around secrecy and excluding outsiders?

    Funny, very funny.

    Caymanians elect politicians based on who screams the loudest in the mic during campaign season.

  2. MM says:

    First of all the entire Cayman Immigration system needs an overhaul – from passport processing to work permits.

    Employers should not have to pay work permit fees until AFTER the approval of the permit – the same with the PR fees; only the admin fee should be payable upon application.

    Reason being, if Government had a policy that the applicant/employer pays the relevant fees AFTER approval (such as when the applicant comes in for the WP stamp or PR stamp) that would reduce administrative time and costs if the application is unsuccessful.

    With every disapproval the applicant/employer must be provided with a Government cheque for refund; that means someone in-house has to receive the disapproval letter, process the payment, send it on to the financial office and have a cheque written up and posted/collected – lengthy and costly process when you have to do this thousands of time per year.

    Cheque/refund processing costs money and takes time; the CI$75 administrative fee that Government charges is not going to cover the real administrative costs involved in the entire process and including refunds. Is there any wonder our Gov budget is so high and still lacking?

    This situation where persons have been allowed to apply for PR when Government should have known full well that the Board would not be meeting to consider the applications has left people thousands and tens of thousands of dollars out of pocket with no reasonable excuse and no ROI; this money would have been better sitting in the bank accruing interest until the applications are finally heard.

    If I was in the same situation I would be very, very upset as it is a psychological and financial strain on the applicants regardless of how we Caymanians may feel about the overall PR situation in general.

    What this shows is that we as a country have elected all-mouth politicians with no plan; if these PR applicants could vote I would bet my life-savings they would have all been approved by now, it is a shame, disgrace and embarrassment.

    If the Chief Justice pointed out something was wrong with the system (which he did in August 2015 so there is still no excuse as to why PR has not been reviewed since 2013), the first step should have been to fix it by thorough review of the system and implementation of a new process based on other proven processes utilized in countries worldwide – considering how they all love to travel I do not understand why they did not seek to meet with Immigration officials elsewhere for some tips.

    The Chief Justice DID NOT state that the present system was illegal or with legal default; he pointed out that the PROCESS of arriving at approvals or disapproval was flawed – a systematic issue NOT a legal issue and therefore the decision of our Government to venture off for $300,000+ worth of confidential “legal advice” to gain insight on a systematic shortcoming is another example of incompetence.

    Delaying currently processing applications and people’s livelihoods when the legal framework and systematic structure was already in place to handle those particular applications under the present law, whether it was an agreeable system or not, is unethical and bad governance.

    If we had an elected body who could think for themselves and who understood this country from the bottom up and from all angles this country could have avoided this ridiculous backlog and impending financial detriment if these legal challenges prove fruitful.

    If all 800 applications decided to go to Court at a total expense to Government of only $1000 per person that would still be almost a million dollars in avoidable expense.

    Now that’s progressive!

    Caymanians need to unite and fight this thing. PPM,UDP,Independent,everyone. If not we all are going to end up on reservations while the expat with status is running things and living in South Sound and Seven Mile Beach.Folks we have to take steps to reduce the number of guest workers that we allow in as these eventually end up wanting to stay and Cayman just cannot accommodate all of them. The sad thingis most of them hate us but want what we have. Even when they get status and are legally Caymanian they prefer to be identified as expats. Status is just the ticket they need to sail on this ship Cayman.Wake up Caymanians and unite; it is the one thing that expats don’t want to see happen.

The Ritch report is going to shock you when it is eventually released, they are going to have to grant PR to every single one of the applicants with no regard for their qualification.

  7. In-the-queue says:

    Blaming the PPM is short-sighted. The problem is that the pubic reaction to Mac’s massive status grants was such that everyone in ‘Government’ (including civil servants who are the real government) are fundamentally opposed to granting any Permanent Residences as these will inevitably lead to Status grants in a couple of years. The only difference is that this time there will be substantial revenue for Government and the people ‘getting in’ will be in the higher income bracket.

      I would be utterly stunned if we didn’t see another 100 ( minimum) P.R. applicants go Mr Edmunds route and file against C.I.G & immigration dept’ on this issue. You can be sure that legal counsel would not entertain engaging in such filing against the government , if there were not absolute violations of the respective rights & privileges of the applicant in question and that a ruling in their favour was not a likely outcome. The door is obviously open now , with or without the ‘ Ritch Report’, as this and other media reporting illustrates. What is a concern is the deafening silence from the offices of Helen and her U.K. department that oversees the B.O.T.C interests. It is equally shameful the governor over the past 3 years has sat gagged & blindfolded ,allowing this issue to get where it is today, without intervention.

      Where this isn’t a PR query, Immigration has “implemented another great idea” ensuring future employees coming in on a TWP has health insurance in place? First of all, applications have to be filed and filled out by the employee, secondly, once approved you will have to pay their insurance premium, where you can have an effective date, if the employees changes his/her mind in coming, work permit isn’t granted, you are out of your money, plus who is going to may the employee’s portion. NO instructions as usual given by the Immigration Department on how we are to carry this out. Any suggestions CNS? For Immigration when called doesn’t seem to know either..

    This is CIG in a nutshell. Make a mess of the law and disrupt hundreds of lives then, instead of spending a day or so working out a solution, they keep taking people’s money and sitting on their hands while the problem grows bigger and bigger and becomes insurmountable. Then when an almost comical amount of time has passed and it’s clear CIG is acting illegally, they leap into action to prevent anyone accessing any information about their ineptitude. I don’t care about seeing the report because we can all guess what it says. I’d like to know what ANYONE in CIG has actually done to resolve the situation. I’d like evidence of one single serious attempt to find a solution instead of bulls****ing us with carefully crafted statements about it being “worked on”.

    The truth is that they’ve done nothing because they don’t want to alienate the xenophobics among their voting base before the election by giving PR to any “driftwood”. So they’re acting illegally and taking people’s money (up to $20m) and doing nothing just to try to get another term in office.

    This is an example of major govt incompetence. How can they not evaluate any application?

    There must be many applicats which have much more than the required points (which I believe to be 110) without the culture test and without the key profession points (which I believe is the main issue for the stall) – these applicants can be approved ASAP.

    There are many who won’t meet the required points even if they score perfect on test and key profession points. Deny them ASAP.

    How many do we have left? If someone is willing to pay 1k for application and deposit as much as 26k for the one time fee, they must be confident that they meet the points requirements. Who would spend this kind of dollars on a lottery?

    Look at the friggin applications and see if we can approve/deny any of them based on info submitted to date. But no, the put them on the shelf instead because some section of the point system is not determined yet.

    Politicians, get that questionable points section sorted out already or remove it altogether and reduce the number of point required.

    I say give the 900 or so people their permanent residence. If McKeeva can give 3,000 Cayman Status in 2003, many of whom only lived here for 3 – 6 months, why not give permanent residence to those who have lived here among us for the past 9 plus years with no criminal convictions and have invested money (houses, apt’s etc) in our country ??

    If you can find 25,000 CI to pay for permanent residence, it shows that you are not likely to be a burden on the social infastructure of our country.

    Compare that to McKeeva status give aways, which is now bursting our Needs Assesment Unit (social services) at the seams, Health Service Authority with millions of unpaid bills and having to spend millions on building schools to accommodate the dependent children from the status give aways.

          Some didn’t deserve it and others did that shouldn’t have had to go that route in the first place. Why… because some were Caymanians who happen to be born outside of Cayman to full Caymanian mothers, parents who couldn’t give their children their rightful nationality due to the then archaic law where women had no rights.

          My niece and nephew got theirs through this medium as they were born in the US. absolutely ridiculous…my sister was full Caymanian. So many of that 3000 were deserving albeit the way Mac and the others who rode on his back and slipped their people in went about it was wrong.

        Maybe but at least the 900 are trying to obtain their residency using the “correct” system in place. The fact that that system is totally flawed is not their fault. Status grants were given on a totally ad hoc basis, friends, colleagues, etc. The PR applicants waiting now are obviously law-abiding, contributing citizens (otherwise their 6-monthly RTCW applications would be rejeccted). As one who has been waiting since February 2014 for an answer – and yes it DOES affect your life, financially, physically and mentally, all I can say is, kudos to Mr. Edmunds. Once his case is ruled in his favour hopefully this mess can all be put to an end. Whether applications are approved or not, surely everyone is entitled to an answer??

    • Anonymous says:

      It is not necessarily true that the renewal of a permit is proof that no Caymanian can be found. I can tell you, and this is the truth that a lot of manipulation goes on for an employer to paint that picture. From changing the job description and the requirements and stating an incorrect salary on the application to immigration because if the salary is low enough it might have discourage a Caymanian who in the past found it difficult to live on the salary being offered. Having said that, I have always felt that if a work permit was being renewed over and over and the person had everything in his/ her favour to qualify for pernament resident then it should be granted. The rollover should have been for at least three years and by doing so the work permit holder would have had a more realistic break in employment, probably would have moved on to other jurisdiction and some one else would have gotten a work permit or a Caymanian could be found . If it was done in that way there would not be such a huge number of people in this uncertain mode. I also think before the rollover became due the government should have looked at each person and determine whether or not that person would be a good candidate for PR and grant a few each year with the understanding that they would then move on to Status in due course. I think that is how it worked in the good old days!!
