The Supreme Court in a strong and terse statement this afternoon condemned the use of photographs of two Puisne Judges in political postings on social media.
The posters which appeared under the caption “Confidence in Youth Leadership-Promised Delivered”, were uploaded on the social media pages of the People’s National Congress Reform and APNU Guyana.
The photographs of the two Judges were among photographs of several other young professionals in the government sector, including supporters and candidates of the coalition.
Without naming any party, the Supreme Court of Judicature in its statement said it “is calling on members of the public to refrain from associating Judges and Judicial Officers with any political party or activity”.
“The Judiciary reaffirms its independence and integrity and rejects any attempt to tarnish and discredit its reputation”, the statement added.
