SIR LAWRENCE JOSEPH APPOINTED AS ACTING ATTORNEY GENERAL

Written by on October 13, 2017

Legal Affairs minister, Elvin Nimrod, informed Grenada on Thursday that, in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution of Grenada, Government had recommended to the Judicial and Legal Services Commission that Sir Lawrence Joseph be appointed to Act as the Attorney General with effect from October 2nd. The recommendation was sent to the JLSC prior to the commencement of the leave date of the substantive Attorney General, Mr. Cajeton Hood.

 The JLSC has approved the recommendation for Sir Joseph’s appointment for the period recommended, and Her Excellency, the Governor-General has accordingly made the appointment of Sir Lawrence to act as Attorney-General on the advice of the Judicial and Legal Services Commission.

 Sir Lawrence has therefore relinquished the positions of Deputy Governor General and Special Adviser to Parliament.

A release issued by the GIS on Friday made it clear that Mr. Hood proceeded on leave on the 2nd October, 2017 and that the Cabinet and Government were never without the legal advice of the Attorney-General or the Ministry of Legal Affairs at any relevant period.

    Another job for the retiree Lawrence Joseph and still very little for the youths who are mostly unemployed; while the GG and PM are retiring persons in the electoral office at age 60 and over they are bringing back 70s and over as high salary earners.
