Richards is named Acting Solicitor General

Senior Crown Counsel Cheryll Richards has been appointed to act as Solicitor General, following the departure of Mr. Kurt Defreitas from that post.

Attorney General Sam Bulgin announced the appointment during the opening of Grand Court yesterday. He said Mr. Defreitas had moved on to become Attorney General in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Mr. Bulgin described Ms Richards as ‘an experienced and highly motivated counsel’ and expressed confidence that she would serve well.

Ms Richard is a graduate of the University of the West Indies and the Norman Manley Law School in Jamaica. She worked for several years in Turks and caicos, coming to Cayman’s Legal Department in September 1996.
