Dominica moving towards CCJ

We believe that we should recognise the court. The UK has been saying to us for years that we are really inundated with our own national request and our ability to listen to cases in a timely fashion and all of this places an additional burden on the system,” he explained.According to the Prime Minister, a cabinet decision was taken in 2006 for Dominica to recognise the court but Dominica’s concern has always been that this would create some difficulties.He explained; “we share in the OECS the same Supreme Court arrangement, this is why we would like to see all of countries go this year or sometime sooner”.The CCJ was established in 2001 by regional government to replace the London-based Privy Council as the region’s final court.The CCJ also acts as an international tribunal interpreting the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas which governs the regional integration movement and the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME).Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more
