New Appeal Judge Sworn In

A new judge for the Court of Appeal has been sworn in. Governor General, Dame Froyla Tzalam today swore in Justice Arif Bulkan during a virtual ceremony. The Governor-General commented at the swearing-in that she is of the view that Justice Bulkan is an asset to Belize’s justice system. The Attorney General, Magali Marin Young noted that Justice Bulkan has served in the same capacity in Guyana and has experience in human rights and criminal law, as well as experience as a law lecturer and published writer on constitutional law. Marin commented, “We think it is a plus for Belize that he honors us in joining our bench, and I certainly look forward to reading his judgments, which I am sure will enhance our jurist prudence.”
