Attorney General of St. Kitts and Nevis, Honourable Vincent Byron, has suggested that if the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis were to sign on to the appellate jurisdiction of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) the decision must be reflective of the will of the people.The subject of the CCJ was one of myriad of issues raised by young people attending a recent National Consultation on Youth Forum with the Federal Cabinet of Ministers.
Attorney General Byron said that there are “many benefits” to be gained if the twin-island Federation were to accept the CCJ as its highest court instead of the Privy Council. There would be cost savings as travelling to England and engaging lawyers there to argue a case tend to be very expensive.
