ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Word reaching our news centre is that Premier and Minister of Finance, Hon Andrew A. Fahie (R1) will be among Caribbean leaders and senior members from the Organization of Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court at the funeral of the late Justice Albert J. Redhead.

The late retired Justice Redhead will be interred at the St Georges Cemetery following a funeral service on Tuesday, March 26, 2019, in Antigua.

The 77-year-old Judge who served in the Virgin Islands (VI) passed away on March 4, 2019, in Antigua after a brief illness.

Up to post time, the Premier’s delegation and his departure time from the Territory was unknown. Premier Fahie's first official trip was to an OECS meeting in Guadeloupe where Caribbean leaders embraced him while he called for a closer working relationship with his regional counterparts.

Who is Justice Redhead?

The Grenadian Judicial Officer in 1974 moved to Saint Kitts and Nevis, where he began working as a Crown Counsel.

In 1975, he became Registrar of the Saint Kitts and Nevis courts and also served as a magistrate of the courts. In 1980, he became the Director of Public Prosecutions for Saint Kitts and Nevis.

In 1985, the Judicial and Legal Services Commission of the Caribbean Community appointed Redhead to be a High Court Judge of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court and in 1997, he became an Appeals Court Judge of the same court.

Since retiring from the Court in 2003, he was twice re-appointed as an Acting High Court Judge of the Court: from 2004 to 2006 and he was again appointed in 2007.

As a High Court Judge, Redhead was assigned to reside in and hear cases from a number of countries, including Saint Kitts and Nevis, Montserrat, Anguilla, and Saint Lucia.

    Redhead was a no nonsense Judge not like some of the others. I wonder if some of the others would reflect on his passing and change their ways.

    Would it be in order to ask at what cost to the people of the Virgin Islands? I am no suggesting that the trip is not necessary but following the pre election trends I would imagine that such disclosure would be coming forth by our new government. Keep the standards high.

    Did you ask the former minister of the 7th district how much did it cost tax payers when he was in st Maarten with the owner of nicker island fighting to save the sharks when out people were here trying to survive on little of nothing,but at the same time you have a right to voice your concerns and remember Mr Redhead was a magistrate in the BVI not the owner of a private island
    Thank you
