A revised Code of Ethics was launched at the Pegasus Hotel, Georgetown yesterday.
This is a most enlightening development, Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister, Anil Nandlall remarked. He said that the Judiciary, by its constitutional nature and mandate, is necessarily self-regulatory. He added that the promulgation of this Code of Ethics is the Judiciary’s recognition that it must remain accountable, efficient, impartial, independent, and professional; as these are some of the tenets embraced in the Code.
“This Code of Ethics will certainly allow the public to scrutinize the conduct of Judicial Officers and will go a far way in building public confidence in the Judiciary which is so fundamental to the discharge of its functions,” he said.
