Attorney-at-law says Caribbean people must respect the CCJ

by November 9th, 2018

Attorney-at-law, Bert Samuels has suggested that Caribbean people must respect the Caribbean Court of Justice, as their own court.

 

His comment follows the vote of citizens in Antigua and Barbuda, and Grenada, against the CCJ being their final court of appeal.

 

The London based Privy-Council is the final court of appeal for countries of the Commonwealth.

 

 

Mr. Samuels told Irie FM News that many Caribbean nationals are not in support of the CCJ, because they do not trust influential politicians.

 

 

Barbados, Dominica, Belize and Guyana have already decided on the CCJ as their final court of appeal.
