Justice Korkpor Hails Sweden Over Magistrate Program

By Comfort M. Johnson, LINA

MONROVIA March 13 (LINA) -The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Francis S. Korkpor has expressed thanks to the James A.  A. Pierre Judicial Institute and its partners, especially the Swedish Government for efforts in making the second magistrates training program cycle a reality.

He said the program was introducing significant credibility to the judiciary, and now there are sixty magistrates who are about to undergo training.   

Justice Korkpor encouraged magistrates to take their lessons seriously and perform well in order to maintain the credibility of the judiciary.

Justice Korkpor made the statement at the weekend at the James A.A. Pierre Judicial Institute professional Magistrates Training Program held at the Banquet Hall of the Supreme Court.  

He made specific reference to Judge Joseph Fayiah of Criminal Court “E”, who persevered over the years and has now become a Circuit Court judge starting from the level of associate magistrate, stipendiary magistrate, trainer at the Judicial Institute, becoming an asset to the judiciary.

Meanwhile, Supreme Court Associate Justice Philips A. Z. Banks has also commended the Judicial Institute board for ensuring that standards are set for the effective functioning of the institute.

The representative of the Untied Nation Development Program (UNDP), Kamel Kamalody, also congratulated the Judiciary for helping to maintain peace in the country.

“I hope that upon graduation the trainees will play one of the pivotal roles in dispensing justice in courts across the country,” the UNDP official said.

The establishment of the James AA Pierre Judicial Institute in 2008 was intended to address the human capacity challenge faced by the judiciary as a result of the civil crises that engulfed the country for nearly two decades.
