The appellate jurisdiction of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) will be Saint Lucia’s final appeals court.

The Saint Lucia government says having the CCJ as Saint Lucia’s final appeals court will eliminate the prohibitive fees associated with the Privy Council and make justice more accessible and more affordable for Saint Lucian citizens.

On February 28, 2023 a 3/4 majority of the Lower House, anchored by Prime Minister Hon. Philip J. Pierre, passed the historic Bill to amend the Constitution of Saint Lucia to allow the country to part ways with Britain’s Privy Council and accede to the appellate jurisdiction of the CCJ.

  1. To moronic Chas and his stooges, take that. Y’all brought gullible people to March when you knew very well that it was in vain.

  2. Pip..well played..your legacy will continue long after you have left politics…now we just have to fave the consequences of a corrupt legal system

  3. It is now the poor and indigent will not have a voice. It’s now those who cannot wine and dine our Justices at places like Cap Estate will never experience justice, true justice that is. It’s now corruption will reign supreme amongst our politicians, sadly so. And they say it’s now we are truly independent – what independence!! To be corrupt and incompetence I suppose.

    What a great Day for Saint Lucia!
