PM Kamla verbatim on new Justice Minister

PM Kamla Persad-Bissessar
I am very happy to be present here today to witness the swearing in of Ms. Chrislyn Moore as our new Minister of Justice. 

As you are no doubt aware, our Ministry of Justice is a relatively new Ministry and my administration saw it fit to create that Ministry on our assumption of office in recognition of the need to have a dedicated Ministry dealing with matters which lay at the heart of the administration of justice.

Ms. Moore brings to this Ministry a wealth of experience as she has practised at both the criminal and civil bars for a number of years and is acutely aware of the shortcomings that plague the administration of justice and the challenges that it faces and which we have to overcome if we are to achieve the noble ideal of justice for all.

Ms. Moore shares our hopes, aspirations and most importantly, our vision for the future and has come forward to offer her services to her country no doubt with some measure of personal sacrifice. 

Her reputation for competence and hard work in her professional undertakings are legend. This combined with her amiable personality suggests to me, it would be a recipe for success. 

I am confident that Ms. Moore would discharge her portfolio with integrity, efficiency and decorum and I wholeheartedly welcome her as another sister into the fold of the cabinet as we join hands together to move our country forward and fulfil the mandate of this administration.

Following the swearing-in ceremony, Moore told reporters she intends to reform the criminal justice process and continue the work of her predecessor, Herbert Volney. 
“My priorities are to really get into the ministry and assess the situation on the ground and after that commit to moving the ministry forward, reforming the criminal Justice process and continuing where my predecessor left off,” Moore said.
