Jamaica Bar Association President Calls For Shift to Caribbean Court of Justice

Ian Wilkinson, the president of the Jamaica Bar Association, described calls for a domestic final court of appeal in Jamaica “a retrograde step,” saying that it was time for the country to sign on to the Caribbean Court of Justice as its final court, instead of the Privy Council. “[A domestic court] has been canvassed by many legal luminaries. Studies have been done, research have been done and the views of many have been canvassed and the majority view is that is not the way to go,” he said. “So why would you want to do such a thing?” [Jamaica Observer]
