Anthony Sylvestre Appointed New Attorney General of Belize, Praised by Defense Attorneys
A release was issued today from the Association of Defence Attorneys expressing satisfaction at the recent appointment of Anthony Sylvestre as the new Attorney General of Belize. The release reads, quote, “Anthony has distinguished himself both in the civil and criminal jurisdiction of our court system. He has achieved a long and impressive list of successful challenges in the Court of Appeal and Caribbean Court of Justice where his brilliant and excellently researched submissions have advanced the development and improvement of our jurisprudence. We know Anthony Sylvestre as a champion for justice and an attorney of integrity and principle whose abilities, dedication, and advocacy is nothing short of inspirational. He was a founding member of our Association and was our legal advisor. Our loss pales in comparison to the gains he brings to his latest challenge as a member of Cabinet, principal legal advisor to the government and Minister of legal affairs as the nation’s new Attorney General. Anthony Sylvestre will not only make us proud but will contribute significantly to the much needed improvements in our faltering judiciary and will confirm to a national audience that he is the proverbial Man For All Seasons.” End of quote.
