Trinidad and Tobago Judge Anthony Carmona was sworn in today as a judge of the International Criminal Court.

Carmona, who attended the University of the West Indies and the Hugh Wooding Law School, was previously a High Court Judge at the Supreme Court of Trinidad and Tobago.

He previously served as an Appeals Counsel at the Office of the Prosecutor for two International Criminal Tribunals.

The Dominican Republic’s Olga Herrera Carbuccia was another Caribbean jurist to be sworn into the court, joining Howard Morrison of the United Kingdom, Robert Fremr of the Czech Republic and Chile Eboe-Osuji of Nigeria, who will all serve nine-year terms in the court.

Judge Miriam Defensor-Santiago of the Philippines was unavailable and will be sworn in at a later date.

“As existing and new judges, we will all work together to reinforce the rule of law and continue to develop a system of international criminal justice which the ICC and its States Parties can be proud, said ICC President Judge Sang-Hyun Song.

“In doing so, we will always remember the countless people around the world, especially the victims and vulnerable, who look to this Court with hope and expectation for a better, more just future.”
