Carey Brown has lost his appeal to the Supreme Court, in which he sought to be reinstated as Executive Director of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO). A copy of the correspondence under the signature of JADCO's chairman Alexander Williams to members of the board, and seen by RJR Sports, indicates that the Supreme Court dismissed the case brought by Brown and removed the injunction he had received.
According to the document, the court's decision which was made on Friday, means that Brown's effective date of dismissal by the board, remains at October 11, 2017. RJR Sports sources say steps are being taken to have Brown vacate JADCO's offices in the coming days.
In early September, JADCO’s board members indicated that they had "lost confidence" in the leadership of Brown who was appointed Executive Director in October 2013.
The board noted that breaches surrounding the anti-doping process and sample collection procedures were committed by JADCO during Brown's tenure. Of note were the cases brought against national representatives Kaliese Spencer and Ryker Hylton. Both cases were later dismissed by the Independent Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel.
