Town hall meeting to educate Grenada citizens on CCJ
Published on May 19, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

ST GEORGE’S, Grenada -- As Grenada pushes forward with constitutional reform, one of the issues raised is making the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) the nation’s final appellate court.

Supporting Grenada’s move to the CCJ is Elvin Nimrod, minister for Carriacou and Petite Martinique affairs. He is also minister for legal affairs, labour and local government.

Speaking at the recently held constitutional reform meeting in Carriacou, Nimrod – who is a lawyer by profession – said the CCJ has his fullest support.

He explained that the CCJ has been designed to be more than a court of last resort for member-states of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).

Carriacou is one of many communities nationwide already visited by members of the constitutional reform committee.

The members are soliciting the views and concerns of the public and discussing the need for reform, including the reasons for the establishment of the CCJ; and the benefits of the Caribbean Court of Justice to Grenadians and other CARICOM nationals.

A special town hall meeting on the CCJ, which was inaugurated in Trinidad in April 2005, is scheduled to take place on Wednesday.
