BELMOPAN, Belize — Well known Eastern Caribbean jurist, Sir Bryan Alleyne, has been appointed a judge of the Belize Court of Appeal.

Sir Bryan served for three years as acting Chief Justice for the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court (ECSC) and a number of years in the Appellate Court, as well as the High Court of the ECSC. The Dominican-born judge also served as attorney general in his homeland for a number of years and was knighted three years ago by the government of Antigua and Barbuda.
The experienced jurist joins three other judges in the Belize Appellate Court, Justices Manuel Sosa, Denis Morrison, and Denys Barrow.
He fills the vacant gap created after the resignation of Elliot Mottley, who served as president of the Court until a month ago.
No one has yet been named as the new president of the Belize Court of Appeal. This most likely will be done before the next sitting of the Court in March of next year.
