Can't believe yu people are falling for this nonsense.. In georgetown, mediation is a failure just under the Chancellor and CJ'S noses-- Most if not all cases go back to the already overburdened 19th century courts- Nobody wants mediation- MEDIATION involves compromise- Litigants want to WIN.
Chancellor wants to rubberstamp these features funded by overseas folks, because he is the recipient of benefits-- trips galore! Do yu think only Barrat travelling?? Check on the Chancellor's record.

It is a good step, since most cases need the mediation processes to resolve some problems.

What good step? Yu have concrete evidence before you that it has failed in GT, why make such a step, which will make more bureaucracy and expenses, and the ultimate end is failure, which we already have- the answer is to employ 12 more judges, and give them support staff, recorders,and modern equipment which even Trinidad and other progressive countries in the 21 st century are using- yu'll get results-- but lawyers don't want an upgraded system, they sit on their hands and condone the rot-- Prolonged cases help losers to prevail and an opportunity for more fees on a continual basis.
