Four new Judges will take their oath of office this morning, while a fifth Judge will be elevated to the Court of Appeal.
Attorneys, Simone Morris-Ramlall, Damone Younge, Sandil Kissoon and Gino Persaud will all be sworn in to office this morning before President David Granger as new High Court Judges.
Justice Rishi Persaud will be elevated to the Court of Appeal.
The new appointments come more than a year after recommendations were offered by the Judicial Service Commission. President Granger had indicated that he wanted the new Acting Chancellor to look at the recommendations before he went ahead with the appointments.
The appointment of the new Judges is expected to greatly assist in the easing the backlog of cases that have been bugging the court system for a number of years.
All of the new judges would have completed more than 10 years at the local bar.
