Justice Winston Anderson, a Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) judge and chairman of the CCJ Academy for Law, will spend the next four years as a member of the Lausanne-based Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), after his recent appointment to the international sport arbitration body.
Anderson, a Jamaican national, was the first Jamaican and youngest judge ever appointed to the CCJ in 2010. He was 50-years-old at the time.
Anderson also chairs the Cricket West Indies (CWI) ethics and disciplinary committees and was recently re-appointed to the International Cricket Council (ICC) code of conduct commission, which provides the membership for several ICC tribunals.
He served too on the ICC anti-corruption tribunal, which heard cases involving allegations of match-fixing and other improper conduct from Pakistan, Sri Lanka, United Arab Emirates and Zimbabwe.
‘CAS’ was a buzzword in local sport for much of 2020, as the body was accused of unfairly treating with then Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) president William Wallace’s legal fight against a normalisation committee imposed by the Bureau of the Fifa Council, headed by Fifa president Gianni Infantino.
CAS also ruled against a challenge by former Trinidad and Tobago football captain David Nakhid in 2015, as he fought against being disqualified from the race to succeed Sepp Blatter as Fifa president.
Infantino was elected Fifa president in 2016.
