Slow to Bench Press-Magistrate shortage in Antigua

Monday, March 12, 2007

The Antiguan Government continues to encounter difficulty in recruiting new magistrates, despite advertising the positions locally and abroad. According to Justice and Public Safety Minister Colin Derrick the remuneration package may not be attractive enough.
The Ministry of Justice has tried its best to attract suitable persons to be adjudicators, but unfortunately efforts have not grown fruit, because the remuneration that is being offered is not attractive, Derrick said. The highest paid magistrate earns just about $5,000 monthly with other benefits.
The three sitting magistrates have on more than one occasion raised the issue with the government. However, due to repeated broken promises the bench is yet to be filled. Once again, Minister Derrick promises that as soon as resources are available, the situation will be addressed.
