Court of Appeal to deliver judgments on December 17 |12 December 2019
The Court of Appeal recently entered into its third and final hearing sessions for the year.
Judges sitting on the Court have been hearing appeal cases from December 2 through to December 10.
A total of 17 cases were listed for the December session, of which the most notable include Minister for Home Affairs & Others versus Ralph Volcère and Francis Ernesta & Others versus The Republic, a drug trafficking case.
Meanwhile, December 10 to 16 has been reserved for writing of judgments which are to be delivered next Tuesday, on December 17 as from 9am.
It is to be noted that two out of the 17 cases have opted for judgment by consent, which means that the parties have agreed to a settlement, while a Constitutional appeal case had been adjourned until the April 2020 session.
The Court of Appeal generally holds three sessions a year, usually in April, August and December.
It held its first session for 2019 from April 29 to May 10 where it dealt with 22 cases and a second session from August 8 to 14 in which the Court heard 17 cases.
