CCJ lacks mechanism to enforce Shanique Myrie judgement, says judge

Sunday, January 19, 2014

Jamaican national Shanique Myrie who successfully sued the Barbados Government after she was refused entry into the island in 2011. A judge with the Trinidad based Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), Friday said there was no mechanism to enforce the judgment following the recent ruling in the case.
Myrie was awarded pecuniary damages in the sum of BDS$2,240 and non-pecuniary damages of BDS$75,000.
Media reports out of Jamaica said that the Barbados government had not yet paid the compensation as stipulated within the CCJ ruling and Justice Nelson said that none of the Caribbean countries had made good on their intention to enact legislation to make CCJ order enforceable within their jurisdictions.
When asked what options would be left for Myrie to pursue, he said, "We have held there is no such thing as contempt of court in the regional jurisdictions so that what is left is for the member states to pass legislation making the court decisions enforceable locally."
