The Corporation of Hamilton in response to the continued suggestion from the Senior Magistrate that clamping is illegal and that he will throw out all cases before him; state that the Corporation is actively seeking a ruling from the Supreme Court of Bermuda. It is our belief that the statements being made about the Corporation of Hamilton both in and out of the courts are not supported by both case law and rulings by the courts.

Further, anyone clamped in a Corporation Car Park has firstly been warned by signage that any violation of the parking rules on the property will result in a clamp being installed on their vehicle. The rules which are to be followed are clearly signed and the ownership of the clamps are clearly indicated not the least of which is a six inch sticky envelope containing the ticket which explains who clamped them and why they were clamped and who to call to release the clamp.

If someone damages the clamp on Corporation property it is no different than damaging the pay and display machine, the signage or lighting all of which are the destruction of private property and damages will be sought.

Any threats to the Corporation of Hamilton staff during the course of their duties will not be tolerated and will be vigorously pursued with the Bermuda Police Service and if necessary in the civil courts. We will tolerate no injury or intimidation to our staff or agents properly going about the work of the Corporation.

It is our hope that the Supreme Court will be able to bring this issue to a close at the earliest opportunity.
