The Supreme Court of China has hired retired Chief Justice Bart Katureebe as a member of its expert Committee on adjudication of international commercial disputes for the next four years.
Justice Katureebe retired on June 20th this year after clocking the mandatory age of 70 and he had since been resting at his upcountry home.
The appointment letter certifies that Bart Magunda Katureebe is appointed as a member of International Commercial Expert Committee of the Supreme People’s Court of the People’s Republic of China for a four-year term from December 8th, 2020 to December 8, 2024.
The expert Committee was established in August 2018 in order to ensure fair and effective operation of the China International Commercial Court (CICC), an organ of the Supreme People’s Court established to adjudicate international commercial disputes.
Subsequently, during the December 8th appointment ceremony held in Shenzhen, China, Justice Katureebe, who attended virtually due to Covid-19 travel restrictions, shared his thoughts about the operations of the commercial courts.
Justice Katureebe upon his retirement mid this year was replaced by the current Chief Justice Alfonse Owinyi-Dollo.
