Justice Saunders’ commendations came last Friday as he delivered an address at the opening of the new law term. He said that it was the fifth occasion on which the ceremony was being held to mark the opening of the new law term, but it was the first time that it was being conducted in the absence of Sir Dennis, who is in Tanzania on a three year appointment with the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda. He said Sir Dennis’ leadership and vision will be missed and the greatest tribute that can be paid to him is to strengthen and carry forward the many reforms he introduced.
Justice Saunders also stated that Sir Dennis’ contribution to the law and judicial governance was recognized internationally when in June he was made a Bencher of the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple and appointed a member of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council.
The acting Chief Justice also said that the court was not yet ready to say goodbye to Justice Albert Redhead who retired within the last year after “almost thirty years of unbroken service in almost every position one can conceivably hold”. He said his vast experience as a prosecutor, a High Court Judge and Judge of the Appeal Court is of tremendous importance to the regional court and he has been asked to continue serving as presiding Judge of the Criminal Division of the High Court in St. Lucia.
Justice Saunders expressed deep appreciation for the excellent service rendered by Sir Dennis and Justice Redhead.
