TAJ News Talk: 28th April 2017. Judge Not

As we make through another week here, it seems the pillars holding up our democratic system continue to crumble.

Martin Daly SC points out that the judgeship system is robust, echoing the thoughts of the Chief Justice.

But Daly also admitted the system was flawed in that judgeship appointments were politically motivated.

Opposition Senator Gerald Ramdeen notes the resignation of Marcia Ayres-Caesar is the first time in our country’s legal history.

Ayres-Caesar says the matters she deals with in the Magistrates’ Court are not yet completed and she must finish her course of duty.

This, of course, after prisoners on remand rang loud their calls for justice and escape from jail.

It’s not a legislative matter. Not even an executive issue.

The issue, is, believe it or not, secretarial.

Are we admitting that the Justice Services Commission, in their robust questioning of Mrs. Ayres-Caesar, NEGLECT to find out what matters the magistrate still has pending?

Is there no system of continuity in the judicial sphere: the only sphere where rich and poor are allegedly allowed to meet on even footing?
