Private Homes Serve As Courts In Maryland

By John N. Bropleh, Maryland County Superintendent

MARYLAND, Feb 6 (LINA) - The use of private homes as courts is said to be hampering the functions of magisterial courts in Maryland County.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Harper Thursday, Harper City Magistrate Ohlyesa Nimely disclosed that judges are using their homes as offices to carry out their statutory functions.

Magistrate Nimely said this practice does not promote judicial best practices.

Magistrate Nimely, who has his court at the Harper City Hall, is meanwhile appealing to the county administration to see the need to provide offices for magistrates in the four districts of the county.

In pre-war Liberia, courts and other government ministries and agencies were housed in the Administration Building, but the one in Harper was destroyed during the civil conflict, leaving most of these offices to relocate to the Harper City Hall.

However, the United Nations Office for Project Services is undertaking the reconstruction of the Harper Administration Building which is nearing completion.
