Please register my objection to the proposal to broaden the pool of jurors to include persons other than Caymanian citizens.
This move will not only be precedent setting, but it will be dangerous, in that it will be depriving persons of one of their most sacrosanct human rights.
I have done a quick search and from 1700 BCE when Hammurabi published the modernizing Code of Hammurabi, down thru the era of the great Roman Empire, no such precedent existed. Even Pericles, the great Athenian and the Father of Democracy stopped short of such an unwarranted gift.
Fast forward through the centuries of European domination of the then-known world and no imperial power would dare think of empowering aliens to sit in judgement over their citizens.
Twenty-first century human rights notwithstanding, there is no compelling reason why any society would wish to surrender such a responsibility to persons who have yet to prove their allegiance and commitment to their proposed adopted society. First, the privilege to serve as jurors, next the right to vote. Where will it all end?
As I see it, citizenship in the Cayman Islands, cheapened already by multiple competing interests, will be devalued into worthlessness.
