Case Caption: In re Khalil Jafar a/k/a Samuel GeorgeCase Number: S. C.t Civ. No. 2017-0079Date: 06/18/2018Author: Per CuriamCitation: Summary:

This petition for writ of mandamus is denied. Petitioner is only asking that this Court hold the Bureau of Corrections in Summary Criminal Contempt of Court pursuant to 14 V.I.C § 581(3) due to its alleged failure to comply with the Superior Court's September 25, 2012 order. Petitioner has not shown that he is indisputably entitled to this writ because the imposition of Summary Criminal Contempt is not a ministerial act as it requires the Court's discretion and the record does not show that Jafar requested this relief from the Superior Court. Even though Petitioner is proceeding pro se, and makes references to the length of time that his petition for a writ of habeas has been pending, the Court will not expansively construe this petition as one to direct the Superior Court to take action on his petition for a writ of habeas corpus. Nothing prevents Petitioner from filing another petition that fully complies with the Virgin Islands Rules of Appellate Procedure.
