Acting Chief Justice of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court Brian Alleyne was in Ottawa on Sept. 28 to update CIDA’s Director of Caribbean programs Paul McGinnis, and Director General of policy and planning Darren Shemmer on the status of their judicial reform programs in the Eastern Caribbean. “The projects are going pretty well,” says Mr. Alleyne, talking about the CIDA-funded programs for major structural reform in the appeal, magistrate and high courts throughout the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) region. Mr. Alleyne says that these programs have been in the works for the past four years, and are due to wrap up in March 2006, though he hopes that with additional resources such as funding and technical assistance from CIDA and the Department of Justice, the programs can be extended through 2007.
