JAMBAR wrote to the General Legal Council (GLC) expressing certain concerns and questions in relation to the Risk Assessment Questionnaire recently issued to Attorneys-at-Law who in the last year engaged in one or more of the six DNFI activities subject to the regulated regime. The GLC responded promptly and accepted JAMBAR’s request for a meeting to discuss these concerns.
Arising from that meeting JAMBAR issues this statement in support of the mandate of the GLC as Competent Authority and the compliance of the profession with the POCA/TPA Regime that is now in place.
JAMBAR will host a Virtual Town Hall Meeting on Monday, July 31, 2023 at 5:00 pm to try to address any concerns that Attorneys may have in relation to the Questionnaire.
Let us work together to ensure the best outcome for us all.
COUNCIL OF THE JAMAICAN BAR ASSOCIATION
