Gbarpolu Solicitor Appeals For Motorbike
By Emmanuel Mondaye, LINA Gbarpolu County Correspondent
BOPOLU, May 5 (LINA) – The City Solicitor at the Weasua Magisterial Court, Momolu Dukuly, has appealed to the Ministry of Justice to provide a motorbike to enhance the work of the court.
The appeal by the City Solicitor comes in wake of the two recent murder cases prior to the opening of the May Term of the 16th Judicial Circuit Court in the county.
He told the Liberia News Agency that he has to walk between six to ten hours in most instances in order to get to some of the crime scenes in the district.
He disclosed that because of this, the government has not been able to gather the necessary evidence needed to prosecute some defendants who come into conflict with the law.
The Weasua Magisterial Court in Kongba District is about 130 kilometers away from Bopolu, which is considered one of the remotest parts of the county.
Dukuly also disclosed that the absence of mobility, like motorbikes, has caused him to use his monthly salary on transportation to ensure that justice is dispensed to all regardless of creed, tribe and religious affiliation.
He called on the authorities of the Ministry of Justice to quickly intervene to remedy the hardship he is undergoing and to enhance the effectiveness of the office of government’s chief prosecutor.
