This memorandum is not part of the determination, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This determination, which is deemed to have come into force on 1 January 2013 and expires on 31 December 2013, sets the salaries, allowances, and superannuation rights and obligations of appointed Judges of the Court Martial Appeal Court and the Chief Judge and other Judges of the Court Martial.
The members of the Court Martial Appeal Court and the Court Martial are drawn from both serving Judges and private practitioners. The latter, when fulfilling their statutory roles, continue to incur expenses in the running of their private practices.
The Authority has therefore set salaries at what it considers to be the appropriate rate for full-time positions. Judges acting on a part-time basis will be paid for the time they act, calculated on a pro-rata basis as a proportion of the salary payable to a Judge acting on a full-time basis.
The increases in remuneration reflect the movement in salaries for other judicial officers, which took effect from 1 October 2012, as set out in the Authority's Judicial Salaries and Allowances Determination 2012.
In addition, the Authority has specified allowances to be paid as a contribution towards the cost of maintaining their practices while carrying out their statutory functions.
