Independent review of Sark’s court identifies serious faults

VERY serious failings have been identified in Sark’s court by an independent review.


Conducted by Roger Venne QC, it was set up to find out whether the Court of the Seneschal provided accessible justice to the island’s residents and was operating as intended.

One of the key changes the report he recommends is appointing three jurats.

The review was sanctioned by Chief Pleas with the support of Guernsey’s Bailiff and Royal Court.

No possibility at all of impartial justice and a very passionate Vingtenier who will shortly become constable. Goodness gracious! Vulnerable members of our society need to take cover and keep their mouths shut. Easy targets are already feeling the rage of the otherwise impotent.
