Johnson Liway, LINA Grand Bassa County Correspondent

BUCHANAN, May 18 (LINA) - The Grand Bassa Bar Association president has called on the County Attorney to use his constitutional and legal power to reduce over-crowdedness at the Central Prison in Upper Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.

Cllr. F. Juah Lawson told County Attorney Boakai Harvey that there are some inmates languishing in jail for petty crimes and for cases which the complainants have failed to follow up in court.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Lawson made the remarks recently during the formal opening of the May Term of Court of the 2nd Judicial Circuit of Grand Bassa County.

She said the County Attorney should not wait for human rights organizations to intervene, but should exercise his right to the make the choice on who gets relief from unwarranted prolonged detention.
