Carswell Move Welcomed

11 December, 2003


Commenting on the replacement of Robert Carswell as the Chief Justice, Sinn Féin spokesperson on Justice matters Gerry Kelly said that 'Carswell was the very epitome of the Orange Judiciary in the North'.

Mr Kelly said:

"Robert Carswell is the very epitome of the Orange Judiciary in the North. He represents everything that needs to change in the Criminal Justice system.

"He presided over a system which is biased against nationalists, catholics and republicans in particular. His replacement as Chief Justice will be welcomed by those of us interested in creating a fair and impartial Criminal Justice system in the north." ENDS
