A full-dress de­bate

the ad­min­is­tra­tion of jus­tice in Ja­maica is held in the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives on a bill amend­ing the Supreme Court Law to per­mit the ap­point­ment of a 10th puisne judge. At­tor­ney Gen­eral and Min­is­ter of Le­gal Af­fairs Vic­tor Grant, at the end of the de­bate, says the ad­min­is­tra­tion of jus­tice in Ja­maica is of a high cal­i­bre in so far as the in­tegrity and ca­pa­bil­ity of the judges them­selves are con­cerned, and that such hold-ups and de­fi­cien­cies that might ex­ist in the “If yuh did cut mi skin, an’ draw blood Mi woulda for­give yuh. If yuh did black up me yeye ... lick out me teet’ ... Mi t’ink mi coulda still for­give; but yuh cut me SOUL, an’ mi caan for­give. NO! Mi coulda nevah for­give dat.”
