Four to be conferred with ‘Silk’
President David Granger has announced the appointment of four long-serving legal practitioners as Senior Counsel with effect from January 1, 2020.
The four attorneys are Ms. Jamela Ayesha Ali, Mr. Murseline Bacchus, Mr. Roysdale Alton Forde and Mr. Stanley Moore.
A statement from the Ministry of the Presidency said the appointments were made ‘with confidence in their knowledge of the law,” after considering their “high quality of service in the legal profession’.
In January 2017, after a 20-year hiatus, President Granger elevated nine legal luminaries to the status of Senior Counsel and has since pledged to ensure that these honours are conferred annually.
