Greta Pat Musk MBE JP was today reappointed as Sheriff of St Helena by His Excellency Governor Capes.
Mrs Musk took the prescribed Oaths before the Governor in his office at the Castle (photo attached). Mrs Musk’s appointment is effective until 31 December 2015.
The Sheriff of St Helena is nominally responsible for enforcing Court Orders, with this usually carried out by the Police Service on the Sheriff’s behalf. The Sheriff is also responsible for summoning Jurors when a Jury is required, either in the Supreme Court or for a Coroner’s Inquest. Her most conspicuous public role, however, is the swearing in of Governors and Acting Governors.
