On Tuesday, the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) re-sentenced two brothers, Orwin and Cleon Hinds, to life imprisonment for the 2011 murder of 72-year-old Clementine Fiedtkou-Parris. The brothers were initially convicted in 2015 and sentenced to 81 years in prison. They later appealed their sentence to the Court of Appeal, which reduced it to 50 years. The brothers then appealed to the CCJ, but their appeals were rejected, and the court upheld the 50-year sentence. The CCJ also ruled that the brothers would be eligible for parole after serving 20 years in prison. The murder was reportedly the result of a property dispute.

It is important to note that the CCJ is the highest court of appeal for criminal and civil matters in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). It is also the final court of appeal for Barbados and Guyana. It has original jurisdiction to hear matters referred to it under the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas, which established the Caribbean Community. Tiana Cole reports.
