I learned to my dismay yesterday that Carolita Bethel has been appointed a Justice of Appeal. I had several consultations with the Prime Minister and indicated there is widespread strong and fervent opposition to this appointment with which I concurred.
My party is aware of the objections and the reasons why. They are cogent and should not have been by the Prime Minister .
There must be a more open and transparent process which openly examines the fitness of a judge to be appointed to the court.
