THE WAY APPEAL and High Court judges are appointed in Barbados may be coming up for review.
Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley said last night her Government was so impressed with the way the system of appointment of judges to the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) had worked, her administration was looking at that approach.
She told a large audience at Grenada Trade Centre in St George’s of her thinking while addressing a meeting to launch the CCJ public education programme in preparation for a November 6 referendum, when Grenadians will vote on whether they want the CCJ to replace the London-based Privy Council.
The Prime Minister said she and Attorney General Dale Marshall met “last Friday and reflected on where we are and how we are and transformation of the society”.
“We believe that the appointment of judges should not be the preserve of a Prime Minister,” she stressed, while favouring the system used by the CCJ. (ES)
