Jamaica’s Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade Minister, Senator AJ Nicholson, is urging full support for the adoption of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) as Jamaica’s final appellate court.

In underscoring the court’s integrity, Nicholson maintained that the judgments delivered are of high quality and not open to political manipulation.

He was addressing a public forum on the CCJ held on October 9th, at the Faculty of Law at the University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona, under the theme: ‘From Debate to Implementation: Where Now and in What Direction Should We Go?.’

The Jamaica Senate, will on October 16th, commence debate on the three Bills, which seek to install the CCJ, and delink the country from the Judicial Committee of the United Kingdom Privy Council.
