MONROVIA, March 10 (LINA) – Chief Justice Francis Korkpor has disclosed plans to create another civil Law court to speedy handle cases filed with the courts.
He said when created, the second civil law court will help reduce the already overcrowded docket of the present civil law court at the Temple of Justice in Monrovia.
The creation of the court is also part of efforts intended to restore public confidence in the judicial system of the country, Justice Korkpor.
Speaking at the opening of the Supreme Court for its March Term of Court Monday, Justice Korkpor noted the difficulty for a single judge to handle the multiple problem of overcrowded docket at the court.
“While we work on the quality of service to citizens, we are cognizant of the fact that acceptable work conditions enhance productivity and are therefore striving to improve the lives of judicial workers through infrastructure development, logistics, salaries and incentives,” added Justice Korkpor.
He reminded court workers, particularly judges, of the correspondent responsibility for them to remain independent, impartial and avoid reproach in all judicial dealings.
