“A Code of Conduct provides a blueprint for judges as to what is expected of them and, more importantly, provides the public with insight into the principles that guide judges in their personal and professional life.”

He commented that Suriname is the first jurisdiction in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) to ask for and obtain the assistance of the CCJ in developing and or reviewing a code of judicial ethics.

The launch was the culmination of a Judicial Education programme conducted by the CCJ for and at the request of the judiciary of Suriname to improve the quality of justice delivery.
The Code of Judicial Conduct project was conducted over a period of 18 months during which all judges of the court participated.

A judicial code is a collection of rules and guidelines governing the conduct of judges, in their personal and professional capacity.

Sir Dennis also commended the Acting President of Suriname’s High Court of Justice, Mr. Justice Iwan Rasoelbaks and his team for their expert stewardship and unwavering commitment to the project and congratulated them on the launch of the code.
