Jamaican Belizean Cheryl Krusen becomes the new Solicitor General

Cheryl Krusen

There’s a new Solicitor General in Belmopan who took up the post as of July first, when Oscar Ramjeet’s term ended. According to a release from the Press Office, Cheryl Krusen, who holds both Jamaican and Belizean nationality is eminently quality with over thirty years of experience in the legal profession in Jamaica and Belize.  Krusen, says the release, was also actively involved in the formation of the Caribbean Court of Justice and in CARICOM work. She’s also regarded as highly connected to Prime Minister Dean Barrow. But we ask tonight if this means that cases concerning the government will now be handled by the Solicitor General, rather than private attorneys. As you may recall, in 2008, former Solicitor General Tanya Herwanger and several top attorneys in the Solicitor General’s office resigned, amid a series of public disagreements and concerns about political interference from the Prime Minister and Attorney General. It took Government nearly a year to hire Ramjeet. Over the course of that time, the PM began a controversial practice of hiring private attorneys to handle government’s legal work, at a price higher than the cost of staffing the Solicitor General’s office. And so it is now left to be seen if the Government will continue outsourcing legal work at a higher cost to taxpayers.

    It is true what one writer said two years ago that Dean Burro principal agenda and supported by the Black nationalist newspaper THe AMandala, that his priority is to Africanize Belize through Caricom and mainland Africa, mainly Nigeria-those scumbags. I suppose no one can stop the dictator now. What a mess the country is in. I suppose the Amandala will support any Burro’s actions since they are first cousins-blood.

    Why do we keep appointing people that are affiliated to these politicians to office?This lady is just another member of Barrow’s dream team.

  5. Elgin Martinez says:

    It is also in my opinion that only born Belizeans should be appointed to such office.So what’s next?Will we appoint a Guatemalan Belizean to Solicitor General?
