can’t afford to give them more power,” he said.
Media personality MC Nuffy also shared his opinion on the matter. He told THE STAR that classism is too much of an issue to even entertain the thought of giving the CCJ so much power.
“Seriously, a dat unno wah duh? Mi coulda never want such a thing inna the Caribbean; better it stay inna England. 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.
