Leaders of the sub-regional Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) are to decide, probably at their next meeting later this month, whether they will adopt the Trinidad-based Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) as their final court.
Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said that Dominica is proposing that the sub-regional grouping must be united on the matter.
“Cabinet (here) has in fact already taken a decision to recognise the court in its final jurisdiction. As you know we have in fact recognise the court in its original jurisdiction. The outstanding challenge for Dominica is to simply we are part of an OECS Supreme Court system and Dominica is concerned about moving forward alone or before any of the OECS countries,” Skerrit said on the state-owned DBS radio.
