Crown officers' role debated despite advocate's death

States of Jersey chamber
The review will look at how the senior Crown Officer roles work in Jersey

A public meeting about the role of the crown officers in Jersey will go ahead this evening despite the death of one of the review panel.

Advocate Christopher Lakeman, a former senator, was due speak at the debate but died in hospital earlier this week.

The meeting is ahead of a review to examine the roles of Bailiff, Deputy Bailiff, Attorney General and Solicitor General and the Lieutenant Governor.

The public seminar is being held later at the Societe Jersiaise.

Organisers of the seminar said Deputy Roy Le Herissier and politics professor Adrian Lee will still make their presentations.

The review will be led by the Right Honorable Lord Carswell, a former Lord Chief Justice of Northern Ireland, who will then report back to the States.

The public meeting is due to begin at 1800 GMT.
