Faith lost in CCJ after Myrie payment delay

Published:Tuesday | June 10, 2014 | 12:00 AM


The fear of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) being the final judiciary in this region has now manifested itself in full. The rush that some of our political leaders have been trying to put us through to have this system in place needs to be closely examined.

Look at this simple case with Shanique Myrie and the length of time it takes to bring closure after judgment has been handed down.

Governance of the region should have all hands on deck to ensure that the case is closed. Now with this type of tardiness, how can regional governments speak and promote this structure of the Caribbean Court of Justice, especially our past prime minister.

The governments of Jamaica have failed their people miserably and still seem to be looking to hand out rubbish in a time like this.

Any further dragging out of the process should be the nail in the coffin for the CCJ.

Old time people seh, take sleep and mark death.
