Former Jurors Threaten Protest In Bong
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, April 10 (LINA) - About 33 aggrieved former jurors of the 9th Judicial Circuit Court in Gbarnga, Bong County are threatening to stage a demonstration if their salaries are not paid within one week.

The aggrieved former jurors said they have waited for their salaries since August 2015, and that all efforts to get them paid have not yielded results.

Speaking to the Liberia News Agency in Gbarnga recently, the spokespersons of the aggrieved jurors, Justine Kollimene and Regan Garteh, said if they do not receive their money by Wednesday this week, they will be left with no alternative but to stage a sit-in at the entrance of the court to disrupt activities there.

Kollimene and Garteh said for too long they have waited for their money and that they believe it was time to call attention to their plight by staging a peaceful demonstration.

Jurors affected are those that worked during the August and November 2015 terms of court.

When contacted, the Clerk of the 9th Judicial Circuit Court, Daniel Porlenkollie, confirmed that the court owes the former jurors, but said efforts are being exerted to pay them.

Porlenkollie explained that the judiciary was finalizing discussions with Ecobank to pay the former jurors soon.
