CCJ’s reports Twenty Percent Increase in Cases

For the judicial year 2016-2017 the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) is reporting a 20 percent increase in the number of matters filed before it than the previous year. In its annual report, the Trinidad-based CCJ indicated cases were filed from four Caribbean countries that are signatories to the CCJ’s Appellate jurisdiction, Dominica, Barbados, Guyana, and Belize. According to the annual report, there were 25 cases filed this year as compared to the 20 last year, with a breakdown by country showing one case was filed by Dominica, 10 by Barbados, and seven each from Belize and Guyana. Forty-two percent of cases were disposed within three months of filing while seventy-nine percent of cases were disposed within one year. CCJ President Sir Dennis Byron said the annual report is an important instrument for ensuring transparency and accountability.
