#Kingston, Jamaica, February 9, 2021 – Justice Minister Delroy Chuck has joined the local and Caribbean legal fraternity in expressing sadness at the passing of distinguished retired Jurist and former President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Paul Harrison.
“Justice Harrison served the Jamaican courts, and by extension the Caribbean, for almost half a century, in what was a stellar career in the Supreme Court and as a Government Prosecutor in the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions,” Minister Chuck observed.
He noted that Justice Harrison’s remarkable tenure as a skilled Jurist did not go unnoticed, which led to his appointment to preside over a high profile corruption trial in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
“The Judiciary and the region are poorer for his passing and Justice Harrison will be missed in immeasurable ways. We will continue to reflect on his judicial impact, generosity of spirit, and what he meant to so many people within and outside the Judiciary,” the Justice Minister noted.
