Caserta published a case note concerning one of the latest appellate cases of the Caribbean Court of Justice, in which the Court declared unconstitutional a provision of the Offences Act of the Laws of Guyana which made it a crime for a man to dress in female attire, or for a woman to dress in male attire, in a public place, for an improper purpose. In the case, the Court also limited the extent to which the colonial “savings clause” present in the Constitutions of the Commonwealth Caribbean countries limit the Court’s powers to judicial review.
