Her Ladyship the Honourable Dame Janice M. Pereira DBE, LLD, Chief Justice and the Members of the Sentencing Advisory Committee (‘SAC’), invite you to take part in wave3 of the ECSC Sentencing Guidelines Stakeholders’ Public Consultation. The formal consultation process of wave3 of the Court’s Sentencing Guidelines project comprises the following four sentencing areas:
- Money Laundering
Your participation in the public consultation is greatly valued and is integral to our work in crafting guidelines which are informed by your input. I accordingly ask that you consider the material and provide your responses by 30th September 2020.
I take this opportunity to reiterate that the objective of the consultation is to obtain the views of a wide range of court stakeholders for the development of guidelines to provide a more uniformed approach to sentencing, as well as to foster transparency and greater public confidence in the administration of criminal justice.
The guidelines can be accessed and downloaded from the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court’s website at /ecsc-sentencing-guidelines/. Please return the questionnaires and the materials with any suggested changes and comments (utilising the tracked changes feature and comment boxes) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please continue to visit our website at www.eccourts.org for updates, Practice Directions, notices and for keeping abreast with judgments delivered by the Court.
