And the man who may eventually "interpret" these or related matters is Kenneth A. Benjamin, the new Chief Justice of Belize. Justice Benjamin's judicial experience spans 17 years; he has worked as a Chief Magistrate in Antigua and Barbuda, former High Court Judge of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court and most recently as a Judge of the Criminal Division of the High Court of Saint Lucia. He leaves that post to come to Belize, where the Guyanese/Antiguan will take up his post on September fifteenth.

Belize has a new Chief Justice. He is Kenneth Benjamin, a learned Judicial Officer who holds Guyanese and Antiguan citizenships. A press release from the Government’s Press Office states that Chief Justice designate, Benjamin has highly developed research skills and is very versed with the laws of Commonwealth Caribbean States and territories. The new Chief Justice designate graduated from Hugh Wooding Law School in 1977, and since he graduated from the University of the West Indies, he has practiced law in Guyana, been a magistrate and was the Chief Magistrate in Antigua and Barbuda from 1991 to 1993. He has held positions as High Court Judge of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court and has acted as a Justice of Appeal of the Court of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court. His last undertaking before assuming his role as Chief Justice of Belize was as practicing judge of the Criminals Judge of the Criminal Division of the High Court of Saint Lucia, which is a position he has held since September of 2007. The new Chief Justice designate takes over from acting Chief Justice, Samuel Lungole Awich, on September fifteenth. He replaces former Chief Justice, Dr Abdulai Conteh, who served in that capacity for ten years.
