Lack of Sheriff Hampers Justice in Gbah
By David Seedee

TUBMANBURG, Jan 24 (LINA) - The City Solicitor of the Guthrie Magisterial Court in Gbah, Bomi County, David Blamah, has said the court is finding it difficult to enforce the arrest of accused persons due to the lack of a Sheriff.

City Solicitor Blamah said those in conflict with the law are using this shortfall as an opportunity to escape from justice whenever the court bailiff, who is performing the functions of the Sheriff, leaves the court to enforce an arrest.

He said whenever the Bailiff leaves the court to enforce an arrest, criminals use his absence as an opportunity to abscond from the court.

Solicitor Blamah said, as a result, crime is increasing daily in Gbah.

City Solicitor Blamah said the County Attorney has been informed about the lack of a Sheriff in the Magisterial Court.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Gbah on Wednesday, Mr. Blamah said burglary, theft of property, persistent non-support for children, are among the cases mostly tried by the court.

However, Mr. Blamah said the officers at the Gbah Police Depot and his office are collaborating to see how criminal activities can be reduced.
