Supreme Court condemns use of Judges’ photos in social media post
The Supreme Court of Judicature on Saturday says it “firmly condemns” the use of photographs of two Puisne Judges that have been published in a social media post captioned “Confidence in Youth Leadership-Promised Delivered”.
The images were shared by Alliance For Change (AFC) member and Director on the Board of NCN, Michael Leonard on Facebook Friday; it includes the photos of Justices Gino Persaud and Simone Morris-Ramlall who are plastered side by side with other prominent members of the APNU+AFC coalition Government and Parliamentarians.
This, however, did not sit well with the Supreme Court which believes that the intent of the posters is to damage the integrity of the judges.
“The Supreme Court of Judicature 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.”
