New Judges for Jamaican Supreme Court


Jamaican Governor General Sir Patrick Allen swore in five new judges to serve in the country’s Supreme Court in a ceremony yesterday at Kingston’s King’s House.

The five judges are Frank Williams, Carol Edwards, Kirk Anderson, who have been appointed Puisne Judges, or associate judges, of the Supreme Court, along with Puisne Judge Sharon Ayton George and Sonia Bertram Linton, who will act as Master-in-Chambers.

“Every profession has its share of challenges, setbacks and disappointments and the judiciary is not immune to these conditions,” Allen told the judges. “Despite all of these things, however, you have kept the system above reproach, for which the entire nation is grateful, and we ask that you continue to make us proud.”
