CCJ denies corruption allegations

ROSEAU, Dominica — The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) has issued a media statement denying allegations of corruption made by Dominican lawyer and show promoter, Cabral Douglas. 

“Mr Douglas’ claim of a politically motivated decision appears to stem from the presence of the court’s president at the 16 to 17 February 2017 intersessional meeting of the heads of government of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). The president of the court, who is also the chairman of the Regional Judicial and Legal Services Commission (RJLSC), attended this meeting with members of the RJLSC to present information to the plenary of heads on the commission’s behalf. Such a meeting is an institutional feature of relationship between the court and CARICOM,” the CCJ said.
