Based on how Ja­maica a run, if the thing suh corrupted, imag­ine if the fi­nal court of ap­peal come to the Caribbean ... . When it comes to the Caribbean, that a when unno a guh get fi do all unno want to do. No, no, no, bet­ter it stay a Eng­land, mi wi gwaan work wid dat. If that come in the Caribbean, it will be a up­town thing ... mi a tell unno the blunt truth,” MC Nuffy said.

The House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives voted for Ja­maica to leave the United King­dom-based Privy Coun­cil and es­tab­lish the CCJ as Ja­maica’s fi­nal court of ap­peal in May 2015. How­ever, there re­main sev­eral tech­ni­cal­i­ties be­fore the fi­nal de­ci­sion is to be made es­pe­cially with a new gov­ern­ment in power.
