KINGSTON, Jamaica:

Newly elected president of the Jamaica Bar Association, attorney-at-law Donovan C. Walker has stated that under his stewardship, the association will continue to monitor the Government’s legislative reform agenda.

He says the bar is now looking at the changes to the Proceeds of Crime Act and changes to insolvency and bankruptcy legislation.

He says while the government has an aggressive legislative reform agenda which seems to be heavily driven by IMF changes, the bar feels that focus must be placed on legislative reforms that protect the people of Jamaica.

Walker says a three-pronged plan for major developments is to be instituted by the association under his leadership.

Walker, who takes over presidency of the association from Queen’s Counsel Ian Wilkinson, was elected to the post at the annual general meeting of the association held on March 22.

Sherry-Ann McGregor was elected to the post of vice-president of the association.
