Cape Mount Inspector Appeals for Court, Police Depot

By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Cape Mount Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, May 22 (LINA) - Grand Cape Mount County Inspector Varney Pinney has appealed to government and the U.N. Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) to build a magisterial court and police depot in Tallah Township, Commonwealth District.

He observed that these facilities will deter perpetrators of crimes in the township who know that police will arrest and detain them to face court trial.

Pinney made the appeal recently when he deputized for the County Superintendent Imam Mohammed Paasewe at the formal opening of the May Term of the 5th Judicial Circuit Court in Robertsport, Grand Cape Mount County.

He said due to the lack of a court and a police depot, lawlessness is on the rise as the citizens are taking the law into their own hands in the township.

Pinney further explained that because of low police manpower in Robertsport, the cops are unable to extend their regular patrols in the Tallah area.

He said prior to the 14 years of civil conflict, police in Robertsport usually carried out regular patrols, noting that the crime rate was very low at the time.
