Cayman Islands Chief Magistrate Margaret Ramsay-Hale will soon take up a judge’s post in the Turks and Caicos Islands, according to an announcement from Governor Duncan Taylor’s office.
Mr. Taylor congratulated Mrs. Ramsay-Hale on her appointment as Puisne Judge in Turks.
“I would like to take the opportunity to thank her for the commitment and dedication she has shown, and for the outstanding work she has done in the Cayman Islands as magistrate and chief magistrate over the past 13 years,” Mr. Taylor said.
