St Helena : St Helena: JOHN CRANFIELD APPOINTED JUSTICE OF THE PEACE
Submitted by Saint Helena Herald (Public Relations Information Office) 30.11.2013 (Article Archived on 28.12.2013)

John Cranfield of Jamestown has been appointed a Justice of the Peace (JP) in and for the Island of St Helena.

JOHN CRANFIELD APPOINTED JUSTICE OF THE PEACE

John Cranfield of Jamestown has been appointed a Justice of the Peace (JP) in and for the Island of St Helena.

John took the Oaths in the presence of the Governorís Deputy, Owen OíSullivan, on Friday 8 November in the Governorís Office at the Castle (photo attached).

The main role of a JP is to sit periodically (on a rota) as a member of the Magistratesí Court. Usually, three Justices make up the Court, and the Court can deal with a wide range of cases which are less serious than those which have to be dealt with by the Chief Justice in the Supreme Court. Outside Court, JPs can sign various summonses and warrants in connection with the work of the Court; and there are certain documents (such as nominations in Council elections) which need to be verified by a JP.
