Another Guyanese Judge

Senior Magistrate Shona Griffith, who has been an administrator and a sitting magistrate in the Belmopan Court, is now a Sitting Justice of the Supreme Court.

Griffith, who has been an attorney for 15 years, and a Senior magistrate in Belize for a little over 2 years, was sworn in today before the Chief Justice, Kenneth Benjamin, today to make it official.

It is expected that the new Madam Justice Griffith will serve the judiciary in civil jurisdiction. She continues the trend of Guyan-ization of the judiciary in Belize where she becomes the 5th Guyanese high court judge to be appointed. She joins her sister judge, Justice of Appeal Minnet Hafiz-Bertram, and her brother judges, Dennis Hannomansingh, and Courtney Ashton Abel, and Chief Justice Kenneth Benjamin, who is also the Chair of the Judicial and Legal Services Commission, which reviews candidates for such appointments. Fellow Guyanese Judge, Oswell Legall demitted office as Justice of the Supreme Court a few months ago.

Griffith holds a master's degree in law from the University of London, and she's also a graduate of the Hugh Wooding Law School in Trinidad. It is expected that she will be able to assist the judiciary with the backlog of cases it is experiencing.
