KAKATA, May 12 (LINA) – The Margibi County 13th Judicial Circuit Court Judge is calling on officials of government to do away with acts of lawlessness, corruption and witch-hunting and engage in positive acts of peace, reconciliation, accountability and honesty.
Judge Mardea Tarr-Chenoweth noted that people placed in position of trust should exhibit positive attributes in order to leave behind a legacy that will impact the lives of others after them.
Judge Chenoweth made the call on Monday at a program marking the official opening of the May Term of Court held at the 13th Judicial Circuit Court in Kakata Margibi County.
She said as lawyers and judges, it is expected of them to always do things that will positively impact those expected to take over, adding “No matter what the case may be, we should always leave behind a legacy that will positively impact our future generation.”
She pointed out that in spite of financial and economic difficulties facing by government, Liberians occupying positions of trust must carry out their duties with sincerity and honesty whether at schools, churches or other organizations.
Responding to the Judge’s Charge, the Dean of the Local Bar of Margibi and acting County Attorney, Isaac Liverpool George Jr., congratulated the court staff and the public defense counsel for a job well done during the February Term of Court.
Attorney George said it was based on their dedication to service in dispensing justice that led to a number of cases being tried during the February Term, noting: “Because of your dedication to duty, there is an improvement in the court system.”
He said during the May Term of Court, he will work tirelessly with the court to dispense justice without fear or favor.
