CCJ to hold Court Sitting in Barbados

15 Mar 2012

The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) is scheduled to sit in Barbados from the 16th to 19th of April 2012, to hear court matters. This is the first CCJ sitting away from its headquarters in Port of Spain, Trinidad.

The itinerant nature of the CCJ means that the Court is able to sit and conduct court matters in any country which is signatory to the Agreement Establishing the Caribbean Court of Justice. This move reduces the travelling costs of attorneys and litigants in some instances and, more importantly, brings the CCJ closer to the people that it serves. The CCJ will hear four (4) matters, originating respectively from Barbados, Belize, Guyana and Jamaica. All attorneys will appear at the Court of Appeal of Barbados, where the court sittings will be accommodated. Details of the court matters to be heard are listed on the Schedule of Court Sittings on the CCJ’s website, under the Judgments and Proceedings portal.

For further information on the CCJ’s court sittings in Barbados, please contact the CCJ’s Public Education and Communications Unit via email address pecu@caribbeancourtofjustice.org.
