New Justice Minister to be sworn in today
Justice Minister-designate Christlyn Moore will take the oath of office at 1.30 pm today at Knowsley, Port-of-Spain. She will receive the oath of office from acting President Timothy Hamel-Smith in the presence of Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar. Persad-Bissessar announced Moore’s appointment last Thursday after she revealed she had fired former minister Herbert Volney.
The swearing-in was put on hold since last Friday since Moore had to finalise arrangements for clients in her legal practice, Government sources said . Moore holds an LLB (Hons) from UWI and is a graduate of the Hugh Wooding Law School and Bishop's High School, Tobago. She was also a tutor at the law school. Admitted to the bar in 1995, she has appeared for the Attorney General in several matters.
The Tobago-born Moore initially worked as a criminal defence advocate until 1999, when she shifted focus to civil litigation and practised exclusively before the High Court and the Court of Appeal. She has been an attorney to various state enterprises and instructing attorney to the commission of enquiry into the events surrounding the 1990 attempted coup.
