By Chris Nyenapee, LINA Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU CITY, May 15 (LINA) - The Presiding Judge of the Seventh Judicial Circuit Court in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County, S. Geevon Smith, has called for a memorial of former and current judicial actors for their services in reference to the rule of law.

He paid tribute to lawyers, judges and magistrates, dead or alive, for their contributions to the legal system, adding that they should always be remembered for helping to shape the judiciary for the better and for peace and justice.

Judge Smith was giving his charge at the official opening of the May Term of the Seventh Judicial Circuit Court in Zwedru on Monday, May 12.

He observed that with the rule of law, “not only the strong survives against jungle justice as was the order of the day.”

He then admonished judicial actors to respect those who come before them to have their day in court.

The program was attended by local officials of government, led by Acting Superintendent Olaska W. Barh, who extended greetings from the Executive Branch of government in the county and assured the presiding judge of his fullest cooperation.

In brief remarks,  Grand Gedeh Senior City Solicitor, Joseph K.G. Pyne, assured the judge that prosecution will do all it can to produce witnesses in court for criminal cases to be heard speedily.

He then noted that government has no other alternative but to free people from jail where there is insufficient evidence.

He then called on citizens, residents and all those accused of various crimes to use the services of the public defender to ensure transparent justice with or without money.
