The Magistrate of the Zogolemai Magisterial Court in John’s Town, Voinjama District, Lofa County, says the lack of Associate Magistrates and Sheriff in the district is impeding the functions of the justice system in the area.
Mr. Rufus Moisemah said the situation was hampering the speedy adjudication of cases on the court’s docket. He spoke in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Sinkor, Monrovia upon his return from the county recently.
Magistrate Moisemah said the situation was also denying residents their right to justice because, he observed, people who commit crimes in the Township usually go with impunity.
The Magistrate has Meanwhile appealed to government to assign Associate Magistrates and Sheriff to the district to help enhance the smooth operations of the court system in Voinjama.
