Thirty-three year old former police corporal and magistrate court prosecutor  Mannon Dennison was sworn in as a magistrate this morning by the Chief Justice, Kenneth Benjamin. With Dennison, the Magistracy Department now has a staff of 14 magistrates. Those present at the swearing in ceremony were the Chief Magistrate, Sharon Fraser, the Registrar of the Supreme Court, Trienia Young and members of Dennison’s family. Dennison went to study law in 2012 at the University of Guyana where he obtained a Bachelor of Law degree.
