Dominica Calls for Strengthening of Caribbean Court of Justice
Roseau, July 17 (RHC) The President of the Caribbean island nation of Dominica Nicholas Liverpool called on the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States to consider the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) as the top regional appeals body.
The CCJ is the top court only for Barbados, Guyana and Belize, while the most Caribbean countries have the Privy Council in London as their top court of appeals.
Liverpool stressed the need to strengthen the role of the Caribbean Court in the constitutions of the nations in the sub-region, the Caribbean news agency reported.
The Caribbean Court of Justice was set up in Trinidad-Tobago in February 2001.
