Trinidad and Tobago’s Attorney General Reginald Armour says he supports calls for the Caribbean Court of Justice, CCJ, to be T&T’s final appellate court.

He was speaking during the debate of a private motion moved by an Independent Senator that the CCJ be recognised as the final Court of Appeal for Trinidad and Tobago.

Mr. Armour in supporting the motion said he shares a degree of pain because the region finds it difficult to find confidence in its self to take that final step.

He noted that there’s a responsibility on all who belong to institutions to discharge responsibilities in a manner that will give the public a reason to trust the CCJ to become the twin island republic’s final Court of Appeal.

Mr. Armour says he can think of no reason or obstacle to prevent the country’s Opposition, Kamla Persad-Bissessar to lend her support with the requisite votes to make the CCJ this country’s final appellate court.

He says T&T is the seat of the CCJ, Armour said his personal thesis is that a lack of confidence is the driver behind acceding to the CCJ.
