  • JCPC 13/17 Pitcairn

This case consists of “numerous applications in which it was maintained that, as a result of alleged flaws in the Pitcairn Islands Constitution, failures in administration, deficiencies and impropriety in the appointment of judges, judicial bias and lack of independence and other similar causes, there was systemic constitutional error.
The proceedings gave rise to 21 defence applications, 2,000 pages of written submissions, 60 days of oral hearings and 30 judgments”.
