A Master in Chambers of the Supreme Court and three Puisne Judges were sworn in yesterday (September 7) by Governor General, His Excellency the Most Hon. Sir Howard Cooke at King’s House.
Audre Lindo has been promoted to the position of Master in Chambers, while Almarie Sinclair-Haynes, Christine McDonald, and Leighton Pusey were sworn in as Puisne Judges. The four are expected to assume their respective duties on Friday, September 16. After taking the Oath of Office, the recipients were congratulated by the Governor General. Sir Howard said the judiciary held a prominent place in contemporary society, adding that “in the final instrument of life, it is the judiciary that decides how we act and treat each other”.
“I thank you for coming and making yourselves available, because in these times, it is so easy to move away from the more important work in our country and take it easy,” the Governor General said.
In his address, Chief Justice, Lensley Wolfe said he was confident in the judges’ abilities to execute their jobs.
“It speaks volumes that [you] have been called upon to serve by the Judicial Services Commission,” Mr. Wolfe said.
Responding on behalf of her peers, Mrs. Sinclair-Haynes said it was an honour to have been selected, and that she and her colleagues would endeavour to dispense justice that was of a high standard.
