Monday, July 28, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: Reports say that Government has identified a new Solicitor General who will take office this week.

The new senior attorney has been identified as Anita Johnson of Barbados, who is expected to arrive in Belize tomorrow and may take office as early as Friday, but official information is expected to be released later this week.

Acting Solicitor General Nigel Hawke goes back to his substantive post of Deputy Solicitor General.

The post of Solicitor General, the leading active attorney representing the Government of Belize as the Attorney General’s post has become a political appointment, has been a revolving door in recent years as no less than four Solicitors General have served and resigned under the Dean Barrow administration.

The first, Tanya Longsworth Herwanger, lasted less than a year, resigning in 2009 after conflict with the Government over her legal advice on the transfer of then Senior Superintendent of Police Chester Williams, who is now himself training in law.

Oscar Ramjeet of Guyana took over from 2009 to 2011, Jamaican-Belizean Cheryl Krusen from 2011- early 2013, and Michelle Daly most recently acted in the post until her departure last November.
