President Liverpool wants OECS countries to support the CCJ

first_img 22 Views   no discussions LocalNews President Liverpool wants OECS countries to support the CCJ by: – July 18, 2012 Tweet Sharing is caring! Sharecenter_img Share Share President Dr. Nicholas Liverpool (file photo). President of Dominica, Dr Nicholas Liverpool, has made an appeal to member countries of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States, OECS, to lend their support to the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), instead of fighting against its approval.The Caribbean Court of Justice was established in 2001 by the judicial institution of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) to replace the Privy Council which is headquartered in England, as the court of last resort. It was established with two jurisdictions; in its original jurisdiction, it serves as an international court with compulsory and exclusive jurisdiction in respect of the interpretation of the Treaty of Chaguaramas, while in its appellate jurisdiction, it serves as the court of final resort in both civil and criminal matters from those member states which have ceased to allow appeals to the Privy Council.The agreement was signed in February, 2001 by Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St Kitts & Nevis, St. Lucia, Suriname and Trinidad & Tobago, and the court was inaugurated in 2005. While addressing the Third Session of the Eighth Parliament at the House of Assembly in Roseau on Tuesday, the President noted that the CCJ should be implemented in all countries as the Privy Council has “long lost interest in its role as their final court”. He lamented that almost half a century after the court was first mooted, Caribbean countries “are yet to take collective action, to bring this noble aspiration to reality”. The President went further in dispelling suggestions that judges who sit on the CCJ would not be able to maintain partiality.“Apart from the age old tendency of the resistance of human beings to change, some of these concerns continue to be repeated….Considerable care has been taken to ensure selection and appointment of the judges is as thorough and transparent as it could possibly be… The independence of a judge is a personal matter which is to be addressed by the conscience of the individual judge but his vulnerability to political manipulation is institutional”.He explained that Caribbean judges have a reputation of being “vigilant” and would be able to exude partiality and fairness in their decisions.“The reported cases throughout the Caribbean have revealed that Caribbean judges are vigilant and willing to hold the line between individuals and the state, and are also careful to assert and protect the rights of individuals in matters which come before them for adjudication. In the final analysis therefore, the critical element for consideration should be, whether a particular judge satisfies known criteria based on intellectual ability, integrity, a capacity for hard work and soundness of character”.True independence of mind and spirit, he noted, “cannot be dictated in any written document” but must come from “the strength of character of the individual judge, exemplified by a burning desire to be impartial and to do justice to all under all circumstances”.Although the court consists of eleven judges who are appointed by a commission and a president who is appointed by the heads of government of the participating states on the recommendation of a commission, to date, only seven have been appointed.“The judges are governed by a code of conduct which imposes a duty upon them to observe high standard of judicial conduct, uphold the integrity and independence of the judiciary and contribute to the establishment, maintenance and enforcement of high standards,” the President continued.He also informed that a trust fund has been established from a US$100 million loan to meet the expenses of the Court in perpetuity, which will be managed by an independent board of trustees. In making a case for the implementation of the court, he noted that it “has been functioning satisfactorily for over seven years and its decisions have been published for public scrutiny”. He proposed that Caribbean governments should do more to educate the public on the purpose and necessity of the court and take steps to ensure that it functions. Barbados, Belize, Guyana and Suriname are among Caribbean countries who have replaced the Privy Council’s appellate jurisdiction with that of the CCJ.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

‘Dream Team’ has plenty to prove

first_imgIt may not be the Olympics, but Team USA has a lot to prove at this year’s Basketball World Championships.After the national team’s disappointing bronze-medal finish in the 2004 Summer Olympics, American basketball fans have questioned whether or not they will ever see another “Dream Team” again.For the better part of the past two decades, the U.S.’s rank amongst the basketball world was unquestioned — it was the best, by far. Recently, however, the rest of the world has suddenly boomed with improving talent to the point where the U.S. is no longer a unanimous No. 1.What really put a black eye on Team USA was how Puerto Rico, a team consisting of an NBA backup point guard, Carlos Arroyo, an NBA reject, Daniel Santiago, and a handful of semi-pro players could knock off a team overloaded with NBA all-stars.While many may still be shaking their heads at the red, white and blue’s performance in 2004, this year’s head coach, Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, is out to restore America’s basketball respect and reclaim its spot at the top.Gone are the headaches of Stephon “Starbury” Marbury — who, sadly, holds the Olympic American team record for most points scored in a game — and Allen Iverson — who, despite what everyone says, should be on the team because he is one of the few who actually wants to be on the team and gives it his all night in and night out. They are replaced by an actual team with role players and all.Spurred by all the criticism, Team USA held tryouts for the first time ever to ensure itself the best possible team. Note: TEAM, not the usual group of all the best players thrown together.The result is a team with some of the NBA’s best young talent including LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony, mixed with some solid, hardworking role players: Bruce Bowen, Brad Miller and Shane Battier. However, it is still missing a pure shooter or two — an essential for the international game. May I ask why Michael Redd isn’t on this roster?While things may seem all fine and dandy now to American fans, all anyone cares about in the end is whether or not Team USA brings home the gold. It is ironic that the team is playing its exhibition games in Las Vegas before heading to Asia — what are the odds they win it all?Germany’s Dirk Nowitzki said USA was the team to beat, and they are, but a handful of teams aren’t too far behind.Serbia & Montenegro is widely heralded as the second-best team in the world, and Argentina, the 2004 gold medalists, will be up there as well with the feisty Manu Ginobili back at the helm.Italy hopes to improve upon its silver medal from 2004, while Lithuania is seeking to bounce back from finishing just one place out of a medal, and Spain will be a tough team to beat with Pau Gasol in the paint.Not to mention, a team can come out of nowhere as Puerto Rico did. China, with Yao Ming, can make a surprise, or the talented squad of Brazil could turn some heads.Judging by the exhibition games, Team USA looks to be ready to reclaim its international recognition, but it’s simply too early to tell. They still have to travel half way across the world — away from the comforts of a home crowd — and continue to play together as a team, which is not always an easy task for a group that hasn’t been together for even a month.So while Krzyzewski and Team USA may be doing everything to appease the American public now, it doesn’t mean diddly-squat until the beginning of September when they’re either playing for a medal or flying back home.last_img read more
