Former Trinidad attorney general wants Caribbean court to be suspended

Tuesday, December 16, 2008

Former attorney general of Trinidad and Tobago, Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj, a Senior Counsel, who is also the opposition Chief Whip, is calling for the suspension of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ).Maharaj said in an interview, "The Caribbean Court of Justice has now become a non-starter as most countries in the region cannot get their population to support the abolition of the Privy Council. He said that the CCJ was costing regional governments millions of dollars, while citizens of these countries "are starving and have poverty problems. So the whole question arises about the relevance of the CCJ," Maharaj added. The experienced lawyer/politician suggested that, against that background and in the wake of prevailing economic conditions, The CCJ, which has an original and appellate jurisdiction, was inaugurated in 2005 and was supposed to replace the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in England as the region's final court of appeal.
