Significant Week Ahead For The CCJ
The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) will, in the week of 25-29 June, deliver two important judgments in addition to hearing three court matters. Many of the matters this week have constitutional implications. Judgments will be delivered in two consolidated death penalty cases from Barbados. The CCJ will also give its decision on the validity of an amendment to the Guyana Constitution that altered the qualification to be elected as President of that country. Among other things, there was an amendment which prohibited candidates who had served two presidential terms of office from serving a third term. Hearings during next week also include a matter involving efforts to have a Belizean judge investigated, a Guyanese case in which a challenge has been made to a statute prohibiting males to be dressed as females, and a case from Belize where a financial institution is seeking to have an award of US$4.46 million reinstated.
