Grand Gedeh Trial Judges Call for Courthouse  

By Chris T. Nyenapee, Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU, Jan 20 (LINA) - The National Trial Judges Association (NTJA) Grand Gedeh County Chapter is calling for the construction of a building to house all courts in the county.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Zwedru recently, the Coordinator of the Association, George Quiah, stressed the need for a modern courthouse to ease the problem that judges and party litigants face due to inadequate space to host courts.

He said presently the Seventh Judicial  Circuit Court is relocated  from  its regular sitting area  to a small room at the Zwedru City Hall, while  three  specialized  courts -- the  Debt, Tax and Traffic  Courts -- are  cramped in one room as renovation work on the administration building continues.

Meanwhile, the NTJA Coordinator has called for the replacement of the six stipendiary and associate magistrates who were recently retired, noting that the delay in replacing the retirees has created a vacuum in the county’s judiciary.

It can be recalled that in 2013, two stipendiary and four associate magistrates were honorably retired at a judicial program held in Sanniquellie, Nimba County.

They were among scores of judicial officials honored at the time by Chief Justice Francis Korkpor, for their contributions to the judiciary over many years.
