A new Attorney General will be sworn in in St. Vincent and the Grenadines on Monday.

Jaundy Martin will take the oath of secrecy and the oath of office and will replace Judith Jones-Morgan, who is retiring from the post.

Martin, 44, has been practicing law for some 19 years.

Jones-Morgan, a public servant, is the longest-serving attorney general in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, having filled the post since the Unity Labour Party took office on March 28, 2001.

Martin will take the oaths at the House of Assembly chambers during a special session, beginning at 10 a.m.

  1. Also, the absolute worst Attorney General in the history of St. Vincent and the Grenadines! Unprofessional, incompetent and an affront to the office. Good riddance!

  2. Chris please elaborate and provide the evidence as to why you consider Ms. Morgan to be the worst AG in your opinion.

  3. 1. In May 2010, The Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court order her husband Mr. Desmond Morgan to repay the National Commercial bank in excess of 2.2 Million dollars. At the time the loans were secured Mr. Morgan and Mrs. Morgan were the chairman and legal Adviser to the said national bank. Mrs. Morgan failed to resign in the wake of such a scandal.

    2. Inability to manage and staff the office of the Attorney General to attract and retain qualified Professional Staff.

    3. Under her watch the Tax payer of SVG paid out substantial amounts to outside legal counsel to undertake cases that a suitably staffed AG’s office could handle.

    4. Voting to elect the speaker of the House of Assembly and being ignorant of the fact that she was unqualified to vote

    5. In 2014, A petition was started asking for her removal from office … Cannot recall any such call for any former AG

    There are a litany of other examples of her failures….like I said GOOD RIDDANCE! We can only get better with her departure.
