November 16, 1999 - A two member Task Force began work this week on examining the Judicial and Legal Services Commission of the Eastern Caribbean. This is in an effort to improve the administration of justice in the sub region.

The Task Force has been given the mandate to examine the structure and functions of the Judicial and Legal Services Commission, established by the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court Order of 1967. According to Chief Justice of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court, Denis Byron "There are two elements here, one is the issue of ensuring that the quality of the judicial service that is delivered to the public is enhanced and secondly to assist in ensuring that the conditions under which the judges serve is improved."

During their working sessions, the Task Force will hold consultations with the OECS Secretariat, Heads of State and Government and Judicial and Legal Officials and Bar Associations throughout the Eastern Caribbean, before presenting its findings to the chief Justice in January 2000.

Mr. Reginald Dumas, retired ambassador and Head of the Public Service of Trinidad and Tobago is the chairman of the Task Force while the other member is Mr. Anthony Astaphan., Senior Counsel of the Commonwealth of Dominica.
