According to a media advisory released by the Caribbean Court of Justice, the Court will convene a hearing for further directions in an Advisory Opinion being sought by the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). The two-day hearing will take place on October 22-23, 2019.

The Advisory Opinion request concerns whether a Member State can, pursuant to Article 27(4) of the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas, lawfully opt-out of a decision of the Conference of the Heads of Government taken under Article 46(4) concerning the expansion of classes of persons entitled to work and move freely in the Community and whether the nationals of those Member States which opt-out of a decision under Article 27(4), can nevertheless derive the benefits of the decision.
