A disciplinary hearing on the actions of a civil servant who has been accused of violating the staff orders is taking place today.

It is to determine the fate of Jeana Corneille who had publicly signaled her political aspirations and her plans to contest the Gros Islet seat on a United Workers Party ticket  at the next General elections in June last year.

The announcement is believed to have breached the staff orders that prohibit civil servants from actively participating in partisan politics.

At the time Ms Corneille stated that she had received the permission of the Permanent Secretary in the Public Service to proceed with her plans for political life. But the claim was denied in a statement issued by the Public Service Ministry.

Ms Corneille will get the opportunity to state her case before the Public Service Commission today. Sources have also confirmed that she is getting the support of CSA General Secretary Wilfred Pierre who is among those witnessing the process.
