Dame Janice M Pereira, Chief Justice of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court presents Revised Code of Judicial Conduct & commentary that came into effect to guide & regulate ethical conduct of judicial officers
Revised code of Judicial conduct and commentary came into effect for judicial officers. The objective of this Code of Judicial Conduct is to establish standards for ethical conduct of judicial officers and to provide guidance to judicial officers and regulate judicial conduct.
The aim is to assist members of the public, the executive, legislature and members of the legal profession to know and better understand what guides judicial conduct, and to assist in holding the judiciary accountable at all times to maintain the highest standards of conduct in the dispensation and administration of justice.
It should be borne in mind that it is generally impossible to compile complete lists of pre-determined activities which judicial officers are forbidden from pursuing. The principles set out in this Code therefore serve as guidance for the standard of conduct expected of judicial officers in their day-to-day work, or during off-duty activities.
It must also be noted that while a breach of any of the principles outlined in this Code may not by itself lead to disciplinary sanctions being pursued against a judicial officer, a breach of the Code may in certain circumstances give rise to grounds under the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court Order for pursuing such disciplinary action.
