Former Solicitor General, Darshan Ramdhani is due to take up an Acting position as a High Court Judge of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court next month.
Well-placed sources told THE NEW TODAY newspaper that Ramdhani who is a partner in the Law Firm of Ramdhani and Associates will be heading off to St. Kitts for a six months period on the bench.
According to a close associate of the Law Firm, who spoke on condition that he was not named, Ramdhani would soon leave the island since he is due to take up the appointment on September 1.
Ramdhani previously served in the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) as a Senior Crown Counsel before serving as Solicitor General for four years.
Sometime in 2008, he was offered an appointment as a Judge in Guyana, but he opted to remain in Grenada to serve in the DPP Office.
Ramdhani who was called to the Bar in 1997 in Guyana practiced at the Private Bar in his homeland for a number of years before he joined the Attorney General’s Chambers to do matters on government’s behalf.
Associates close to Ramdhani who wrote a book on “Confession Evidence – Practice and Procedure in the Commonwealth Caribbean” describe him as someone who is well reasoned.
The book, which deals with confession evidence in criminal matters, was launched in 2009 by the Grenada Bar Association.
Ramdhani has been a lawyer for 16 years.
