The Fund’s income is expected to finance the expenditures of the Court, remuneration of judges, inter alia, in perpetuity. The CCJTF Board of Trustees comprises representatives of various regional bodies, including the Caribbean Community; University of the West Indies; Insurance Association of the Caribbean; Caribbean Institute of Chartered Accountants; Organisation of Commonwealth Caribbean Bar Associations; Conference of Heads of the Judiciary of Member States of the Caribbean Community; Caribbean Association of Industry and Commerce; and the Caribbean Congress of Labour.
