Notes that we need urgently a Caribbean Court of Justice to adjudicate on disputes arising within the Caribbean Community. We need urgently this judicial forum whether the litigants are two or more States, an individual and a 'public authority', two or more individuals, or a State and a Community organ. The Caribbean Single Market and Economy, when it is established, will create a new legal order within the space attributed to the member states of CARlCOM. This new order must be founded on respect for democratic values and the rule of law if the Caribbean People are to remain faithful to the cornerstone of their respective constitutions. In this new enterprise, the Caribbean Court of Justice has a pivotal role to play.
