Three Bermudian Supreme Court judges have been appointed to act as judges in the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands.

The Bermudian judges: Chief Justice Ian Kawaley, Carlisle Greaves and Stephen Hellman were appointed to the panel of judges eligible to sit on a part-time basis on the Grand Court.

Justices Greaves and Hellman have been selected to the Grand Court General Division Panel of Acting Judges.

The Chief Justice has been appointed as a judge of the Grand Court Financial Services Division.

Kawaley speaking with Bernews.com, noted : “I am honoured to have been afforded the opportunity to assist the Financial Services Division of the Cayman Islands Grand Court in an acting capacity from time to time and insofar as my other judicial commitments permit.”

“The legal system in the Cayman Islands has much in common with Bermuda’s legal system. It is not inconceivable that we may in the future need to supplement our own judicial ranks and may in turn seek assistance from the Caymanian Bench,” he further added.
