In 2009, an independent review panel was appointed by the States to review the roles of Jersey's Crown Officers (Bailiff, Deputy Bailiff, Attorney General and Solicitor General). The panel was asked to report back to the States on whether the current roles should be changed and, if so, how and the likely cost implications.
The panel has completed its review and, on 6 December 2010, presented its report to the States.
To help its consideration, the panel sought a legal opinion from Mr Rabinder Singh QC on certain Human Rights matters relating to the roles of the Crown Officers. Mr Singh has agreed that his opinion may be made publicly available.
You can read both the report and Mr Singh's legal opinion by following the link below.
