THE COUNTRY’S TOP JUDGE has conceded the judiciary has been getting some licks from the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) for its tardy delivery of decisions and judgements.

And while he admits the system might be in for some more criticism as it grapples with a hefty backlog, sick attorneys and sometimes absent accused, Chief Justice Sir Marston Gibson said judicial officers were making “a determined effort” to bring their cases up to date.

Sir Marston was speaking to the SATURDAY SUN during a break on the first day of a two-day Judicial Reform and Institutional Strengthening (JURIST) Project at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre yesterday. It continues today.

He acknowledged that the CCJ had been highly critical on numerous occasions of the slow delivery of justice in Barbados. (HLE)
