Justice Albert Redhead Dies

6

Former High and Appeals Court Justice Albert Redhead has died less than three years after his retirement from the bench.

The 77-year-old served more than 31 years on the bench across the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States and under the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court.

In an interview after his retirement, Justice Redhead said the job is one that calls for judges to be up to date and they must always be guided by the rule of law and the law itself.

Redhead was highly respected in the judiciary and presided over many precedent-setting cases.

He started his legal career in Antigua on February 1, 1985, and worked in Antigua until 1997.

  1. Justice Redhead was a man who served this country and the East Caribbean well. A serious man in court but if you knew him personally, he was a most humble and caring man who loves people. He also loved Antigua, his adopted home dearly. To his dear wife June and to the rest of his family, I offer my sincere condolences. May his soul continue to sleep in peace.

  2. Rest In Peace Judge.. I will miss you dearly. My deepest condolences to all the family. Heartbroken 💔

  3. He was a very serious jurist that sets the bar on the bench. He’ll be well miss by the entire Caribbean judiciary. Condolences to his family and the East Caribbean Court.

  4. He will be missed. He was never too busy to mentor young lawyers or judges. We had very pleasant times with him as Head of The Criminal Division in St Lucia. He was the only judge who would invite jurors and office staff to his legendary parties at the close of the criminal session. May he rest in eternal peace.
