Incoming Caribbean Court of Justice President Sir Charles Michael Dennis Byron was one of several of the CCJ’s justices participating in a series of programmes aimed at instructing Caribbean nationals about the court.
Sir Dennis was in St Kitts this week underscoring what he felt was the importance of a final appellate court being sited in the Caribbean, as opposed to the Privy Council, which is based in London and remains the final court of appeal for most Caribbean nations.
Sir Dennis, along with Appeal Court Judge Justice David Hayton and Justice Adrian Saunders were in Nevis for a workshop on Monday and participated in a Media Workshop today.
