HAMILTON, Bermuda, Apr 27, CMC – Three Bermuda Supreme Court judges are now able to sit part-time in the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands.
Chief Justice Ian Kawaley, a Bermudian, has been appointed as a judge of the Grand Court Financial Services Division, while puisne judges Carlisle Greaves, a Barbadian, and Stephen Hellman, who is British, have been appointed to the Grand Court General Division Panel of Acting Judges.
“I am honoured to have been afforded the opportunity to assist the Financial Services Division of the Cayman Islands Grand Court in an acting capacity from time to time and insofar as my other judicial commitments permit. The legal system in the Cayman Islands has much in common with Bermuda’s legal system,” said Kawaley
“It is not inconceivable that we may in the future need to supplement our own judicial ranks and may in turn seek assistance from the Caymanian bench,” he added.
The Cayman Islands and Bermuda are both British Overseas Territories.
