Her Majesty The Queen has by Royal Warrant appointed St Helena’s Chief Magistrate John MacRitchie, as a Judge – in Scotland called a Sheriff – based in Edinburgh. He will take up his appointment at the end of March 2017.
The Chief Magistrate said that, in the meantime, it would be ‘business as usual’ in the Courts, Tribunals, Commissions and Authorities on St Helena.
Work will commence immediately on the appointment of John’s successor.
