The preface plainly states, entomb alia, that the constitution “is appointed by the Trelawney Town Treaty of 1738-39”.
The constitution council included Coral B. Barnett (seat), Harris N. Cawley (bad habit seat), Kern K. Austin (secretary), Robert N. Cawley (partner secretary), Ditty S. Cawley, Melville D. Currie, Sidney Peddie, Rupert Robinson, Garfield Rowe, Reverend Io Smith, and Carlington G. Wallace.
Notwithstanding the preface, the record has eight articles comprising of subsections. Articles I to VIII oversee the administrative branch, wrongdoings and disciplines, exchanges, land, races, impediments, resources, signatories, and government signatories, in that specific request. It was seen by A. Robinson, W. Anderson, and M. Currie, and endorsed by Sidney Peddie, then, at that point, colonel of the Trelawney Town Maroons of the Sovereign State of Accompong, and Veronica Smith-Harris, JP, and afterward head of Accompong Primary and Junior High School.
On the initiative chain of importance, the workplace of the colonel is at a similar level as the Full Maroon Council, under which the Board of Elders and the Council of Overseas Maroons work. The workplace of the appointee colonel sits underneath that of the colonel’s. It capacities over the colonel’s leader bureau, different pastoral workplaces, the financier, and the secretary of state. The Full Maroon Council is the oversight board of trustees answerable for ensuring everything is straightforward and all together, and for planning decisions.
WILL OF THE PEOPLE
It is fascinating to take note that the constitution doesn’t give outright capacity to the colonel nor to the Full Maroon Council. The preface expresses that the colonel or potentially the Full Maroon Council “… will make no law addressing a foundation of religion, or preclude the free exercise thereof, or compressing the ability to speak freely, or of the press, or the right individuals serenely to gather, and to request of the public authority for a change of complaints”.
The colonel doesn’t have sole power and additionally position to go into any settlement in the interest of individuals without the assent of the Full Maroon Council.
The prelude additionally expresses that: “It is standard and conventional that the colonel doesn’t reserve the option to go into an exchange or settlement for the benefit of the Trelawny Town Maroons of the Sovereign State of Accompong without the endorsement of the Council.”
This constitution, then, at that point, is an obvious sign that the Accompong Town Maroons view themselves as an independent arrangement of individuals who are not exposed to the laws and by-laws of Jamaica.
Yet, it additionally infers undoubtedly that the boss or colonel can’t be a tyrant. The individual is dependent upon the desire of individuals.
