JSJP Donates To Gbarnga Region Hub

By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, June 27 (LINA) - The Justice and Security Joint Programme (JSJP) has donated an 18-seater bus to the Gbarnga Regional Justice and Security Hub in Bong County.

The vehicle was donated to the Judiciary to serve the hub in Gbarnga, which is a one-stop-shop facility that provides security, human rights, judicial and legal services to the people of Bong, Nimba and Lofa counties with support from the Government of Liberia and the UN Peace Building Fund.

The offer comes after a need assessment of programmes of the judiciary in the region where it was realized that access to justice especially pre-trial detention needed serious attention.

According to the Ministry of Justice, the vehicle will be used to pilot the Magistrate Sitting Programme outside of Montserrado where Magistrates in Bong County will be transported to court at the hub along with pre-trial detainees to speed up trials.

The vehicle was purchased by the government for over US$30,000 and was turned over on the main grounds of the Temple of Justice in Monrovia on Friday.

Deputy Manager of the Programme Management Unit (PMU) of JSJP, Robert Nyahn  turned over the keys of the vehicle, committing the PMU to always doing all it can to provide the necessary logistics to facilitate the smooth implementation of the Pilot Magistrate Sitting Programme in Bong County.

Receiving the keys, Assistant Court Administrator of the Supreme Court of Liberia, Cllr. Ernestine Morgan-Awar thanked the JSJP for the bus, and assured that the vehicle will be used and managed for the purposed intended.

She reported that the offer was very timely especially at a time where there is need for adequate transportation of pre-trial detainees, magistrates and court officials.

The Gbarnga Regional Hub was launched in 2013, staffed with police, human rights monitors, public defenders, prosecutors, Sexual and Gender Base Violence Crimes Unit officials, probation and immigration officers delivering justice and security services in communities of Bong, Lofa and Nimba counties.
