New legal year opens
THE 2016-2017 LEGAL year started today with a church service at the Cathedral of St Michael and All Angels under the theme Celebrating A Golden Jubilee – A Call To Justice And Reconciliation.
The Very Reverend Dr Jeffrey Gibson called for forgiveness alongside justice as he addressed a congregation which included Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave, Chief Justice Sir Marston Gibson, Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite and others members of the legal fraternity.
Speaking with regards to both victims and accused persons, the reverend said “given human weakness there’s always room for recovery”.
The service concluded with a parade which ended at the Supreme Court. (TKS)
