ST GEORGE’S, Grenada (CMC):
The Grenada Parliament today approved legislation for the island to replace the London-based privy Council with the Trinidad-based Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) as its final court.

However, before Grenada could join Barbados, Dominica, Belize and Guyana that have already made the CCJ their final court, the issue will have to go before its citizens in a referendum, the date for which has not yet been announced.

However it is most likely to be held by December this year.
