By BBN Staff: There was no press conference to inform the public and it never made the news, but BBN has learned that three magistrates were sworn in last week.
One of them is former Belize City Councilor, Alifa Elrington.
Elrington, a practicing attorney at law has been elevated to the post of Senior Magistrate.
Sources within the judiciary system told BBN that her appointment has stirred controversy because to assume that senior post one would have to serve at least 5 years as a magistrate.
The other appointees include Mannon Dennison and Lionel Olivera.
It is not yet known what courts in the country they will be assigned to.
