07/10/2010 - Mr Justice Sciberras holds last sitting

On Wednesday 6 October 2010, the Hon. Mr Justice Philip Sciberras held his last sitting before retiring from the Bench upon reaching the statutory retirement age of 65.


After delivering 67 judgments – thereby disposing of all the cases that were left on his docket but one – Mr Justice Sciberras took the opportunity to express his views on whether the retirement age for judges should be increased and on the need to deliver judgments without unnecessary delay (click here for Times of Malta report).


At the end of the sitting Mr Justice Sciberras was given a standing ovation from serving and retired members of the Judiciary, lawyers, members of his family and the friends who had crowded into the courtroom for the occasion.
