KINGSTON, Jamaica — In an unprecedented move, head of the Jamaican judiciary, Justice Bryan Sykes, is scheduled to address the nation. Justice Sykes is expected to speak on the transformation and modernisation of the country’s court system in an address on Sunday, March 10.

In his presentation, the Chief Justice will outline his vision for the provision of world-class legal services in Jamaica and call for a strengthening of the partnership among stakeholders in the system including: judges, court staff, witnesses, jurors and attorneys-at-law, to improve the administration of justice, a release from his office said.

Justice Sykes will also outline specific measures to be undertaken to achieve the mission of the courts for a timely delivery of a high standard of justice for all, the release added.

“The judiciary of Jamaica, as a co-equal branch of government, remains committed to high ethical standards guided by the six core values of judicial conduct as outlined in the Bangalore Principles of Judicial Conduct — independence, impartiality, integrity, propriety, equality, competence and diligence. The judiciary of Jamaica is also firm in its view that improved communication with the public and improvements in service delivery are critical to engendering public trust and confidence in the system,” stated the release.

Justice Sykes was appointed as Jamaica’s eighth Chief Justice one year ago, having been sworn in on March 1, 2018.
