Local Group Contends There are Many Issues Surrounding Referendum
Wednesday 24th October, 2018-CCJ Can Wait, a group opposed to the referendum being held on November 6th is again insisting that the government has failed in its bid to properly educate the populace “on issues of concern to the people regarding the CCJ.”
The group’s Interim Chairman, Attorney at Law Kenny Kentish today said three months are insufficient to overcome the plethora of issues that have been expressed by many.
Another issue the group is highlighting is the funding for the Caribbean Court of Justice. Kentish says he does not believe it will be adequate.
CCJ can wait is calling on Prime Minister Gaston Browne to seek answers from his OECS colleagues on how they intend to pay back a debt to the OECS Supreme Court that is more than $ 20 million and to propose the creation of a trust fund for the lower courts.
Kentish says he and his group are for the CCJ, but they have an issue with the method that is being used to get Antiguans and Barbudans to accede to the regional court.
