Dickie Bradley Praises “First-Rate” Denys Barrow as He Joins C.C.J.

Denys Barrow

The Caribbean Court of Justice officially announced today via press release that Attorney Denys Barrow will be joining Belize’s final court of appeal headquartered in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.  Barrow is the first Belizean to be appointed a judge of the C.C.J. and will be taking on the appointment later this year. Belize is among four Caribbean countries that have replaced the appellate jurisdiction of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council with the CCJ.  According to Attorney Dickie Bradley, Barrow is a first rate intellectual and academic.

“He is a first rate brains. When we were younger, we used to say, “Who is smarter—Denys or Dean? Denys had said that his older brother, Dean is the smarter one; he loves his brother. As I said, he taught me law. He is a first rate intellectual and academic; nobody can take that away from Denys Barrow. I’m real proud to hear that in fact Belize sits on the Caribbean Court of Justice which is the highest court for the Caribbean in terms of those countries which have not removed themselves from the Privy Council. That is a big plus for Belize; that is a huge kudos for Denys, his family and for Belize.”
