A Trinbagonian has been elected to be a judge for the Netherlands-based International Criminal Court.
Justice Althea Alexis-Windsor will be in the role until 2030 after being elected on December 23rd 2020 by securing 86 of the 118 votes placed.
According to the Foreign Affairs Ministry, she has 23 years of experience in criminal law and international criminal law and has served as a Supreme Court Judge in T&T for the past seven years.
The Ministry believes Justice Alexis-Windsor’s election is a testament to T&T’s pioneering work in the establishment of the ICC.
It reminds that it was former Prime Minister and President ANR Robinson who, in 1989, resurrected the idea of the court in an address to the United Nations General Assembly.
