Constitutional Court Judgment on Good Faith Certificates Related to the Keith Clarke Case

The Constitutional Court hearing the matter regarding the Good Faith Certificates (also known as immunity certificates) issued to the three Jamaica Defence Force soldiers who are defendants on trial for killing Keith Clarke delivered its judgment yesterday, February 18, 2020.

The delivery of the judgment was made available to the public by a live audio stream, which continues an important development towards making certain court proceedings more accessible to those unable to attend court. This was done for the Constitutional Court’s judgment in the National Identification Act challenge last year April, and  I hope that this practice will be continued and expanded on in the future.Supreme Court 18-2-2020 c

When I checked this morning, the judgment had not yet been posted on the Supreme Court’s website, so I am sharing a copy here for those who may be interested in reading it.
