[1]               I have considered the application made by learned counsel Mrs. Amesbury seeking my recusal from this case.  The application was initially based by learned counsel “in the interest of justice and independence and that impartiality needs to be seen to be done” and therefore learned counsel for the petitioner Mrs. Amesbury moved “especially on the instructions of the petitioner” that I recuse myself from this  case.
