Jus­tice Lor­raine Wil­liams Sworn In

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Lor­raine Wil­liams is the new Res­i­dent High Court Judge for Ne­vis. She was sworn in by Deputy Gov­er­nor Gen­eral His Hon­our Eus­tace John, at his Bath Plain of­fice on Jan­uary 12, 2015.

At the end of the brief but sig­nif­i­cant cer­e­mony, Jus­tice Wil­liams told the Depart­ment of In­for­ma­tion that she was hon­oured to be ap­pointed by the Hon. Chief Jus­tice of the East­ern Caribbean Supreme Court (ECSC) to fill the po­si­tion on Ne­vis. She gave her com­mit­ment to serve with fair­ness.

“I want to pledge my support to the peo­ple of Ne­vis in that I will con­tinue to de­liver jus­tice with­out fear or favour, with im­par­tial­ity and fair­ness and of course, to make Ne­vis my home now be­cause I am here per­ma­nently. So it’s quite a plea­sure for me to be here,” the new Res­i­dent Judge said. The Deputy Gov­er­nor Gen­eral used the op­por­tu­nity to con­grat­u­late Jus­tice Wil­liams on her ap­point­ment and wished her a long stint in her new po­si­tion.

Jus­tice Lor­raine Wil­liams this week of­fi­cially took up of­fice

in Ne­vis.
