Judge: It’s up to CJ and Registrar now

Social Share

A visibly upset Justice Carlisle Greaves has sent a murder matter to the Chief Justice and the Registrar for their action after efforts to get the matter out of the Magistrates’ Court failed once again due to the lack of a signature.

And not only has the judge called the judicial system “broken”, he has said people spend time blasting the Caribbean Court of Justice for rightfully criticising the island, instead of doing something about the delays.

“This is unfair. A man in jail for over five years for a murder he wants to plead guilty to and we can’t make a move,” Justice Greaves declared yesterday in the No. 3 Supreme Court.

“That is a system that is totally broken down. And then we get upset when the CCJ talks about us. Rather than deal with our issues, we want to criticise those who rightfully criticise us,” he said. (HLE)
