PRESS RELEASE - JUDICIAL APPOINTMENTS - 2 May 2017

 

2 MAY 2017 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

JUDICIAL APPOINTMENTS

We welcome our six newly appointed acting judges and Chief Justice Kawaley and Mr Raj Parker who

have recently been sworn in as Grand Court Judges (and part time judges) in the Financial Services

Division. They are obviously able appointees. The public should know though that the legal profession is

not consulted at all about judicial appointments. The CBA notes that two more judges have been

appointed who will not be resident in the Islands. Its view is that it is in the public interest that our

judiciary should, if possible, be resident here. We hope that view will be taken into consideration in

respect of appointments in future.
