DO YOU KNOW that the CCJ is two courts in one?

20 Nov 2011

The CCJ is two courts in one! The CCJ has two functions:

  • an Original Jurisdiction, which deals with your right to move between CARICOM countries freely and your right to move your money and your business. This is the basis of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) and the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas; and
  • an Appellate Jurisdiction, to hear appeals from courts of those countries which decide to use it for this reason.
    ALL CARICOM Member States who have signed the Agreement Establishing the CCJ are Members of the CCJ.
