THE Lay Magistrates Association of Jamaica (Kingston Chapter) will be staging its awards banquet at the Valencia, Spanish Court tomorrow.

One thousand, seven hundred and seventy-seven justices of the peace will be eligible for nomination for the award for excellence.

To be eligible for selection, justices of the peace must satisfy the following criteria: uphold the “Code of Conduct for Justices of the Peace”; show humility in providing service; is unbiased in the exercise of duties; is expected to be well known in the stated community at all levels; held in high regard as an agent of change and demonstrably goes beyond the call of duty.

Custos Rotolurum Steadman Fuller said: “I am delighted to be the patron of this timely event, given the recent furore surrounding a few justices of the peace. The awards ceremony will showcase the role and work of the justices of the peace and at the end of the evening’s proceedings we are expected to announce a winner for excellence in service.”

He added: “I am particularly pleased that Percival James Patterson, former prime minister of Jamaica, has agreed to be the event’s key note speaker. Mr Patterson is a good fit as he played a critical role in the development of the Caribbean jurisprudence through the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) and a borderless regional economy through Caricom. He has also been appointed a member of the Global Leadership Foundation and is a member of the Interaction Council; a good fit indeed.”
