Justice system in need of fixing*

Reading all the reports on the matter concerning Chief Justice Ivor Archie and the suggestion he is above the law, which is most strange and highly disputable in this ­democracy, the question which needs to be answered here is: if the prime minister, who is the head of this nation, is not above the law, then how come a citizen below his status can consider himself above the law and is allowed to prove that he is, in defiance of a panel of local, distinguished, senior, qualified law professionals?
If there is some sort of loophole in the Constitution that indicates the chief justice is above the law here, then this needs to be corrected ­immediately.
