Charles Gomez Biography



Charles A. Gomez LL.B. (Hons) of counsel is a Gibraltarian lawyer and one time politician, and founder of the right of centre New Gibraltar Democracy (NGD) Party.



Gomez was born in Gibraltar on 23 April 1959 and was called to the Bars of England, Wales and Gibraltar in 1982. For several years in the 1990s he wrote a weekly piece in the newsweekly "Vox" and was at one time heavily involved in powerboat racing having organised Royal Yachting Association and Union Internationale Motonautique events in Gibraltar.


Political career

He was retained by the suspended Chief Justice of Gibraltar, Derek Schofield, in proceedings for the removal of Gibraltar's senior judge heard by the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in London which resulted in a 4/3 split of that court in a decision handed down on 12 November 2009. The decision is considered to be a major precedent in the field of judicial independence in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.


Gomez was a prominent member and spokesman of the "No vote" campaign for the 2006 constitutional referendum on Gibraltar's current Constitution. He currently concentrates on his career as a barrister.
