The justice is sixty-seven years of age and will be serving until the age of seventy-five. The other sitting justices are Manuel Sosa, Dennis Morrison and Minette Hafiz Bedran.

    There has to be a process where the hiring of judges is totally independent of the scum that traditionally governed us, our beloved area reps and cabinet members. It only makes us suspicious of the whole process, especially in lieu of the Telemedia Decision. Is this a routine process or a handsome reward?

    Another useless incompetent judge given job just because of the color of his skin he has let over 30 murderers go while sending people to jail for a few sticks of weed and fu thief a piece of cheese.

    Those Judges that accept appointment outside the scope of the law should be ashame. They make ruling for and on behalf the UDP party and not the best interest of the people of Belize. They have no honor.
