Liberia Law Society Ends Seminar In Bong
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, March 12 (LINA) - The Liberia Law Society (LLS) has held a seminar on the establishment and functions of the ECOWAS Court, the African Court and the International Criminal Court (ICC) in Gbarnga, Bong County.

The forum brought together 50 persons from various institutions, including the Catholic Justice and Peace Commission, the Development Education Network-Liberia (DEN-L), the Foundation for Intentional Dignity (FIND), the media, Liberia National Police, judicial actors, youth and women groups in the county.

The Project Coordinator of the Liberia Law Society, Ezekiel Pajibo, told the Liberia News Agency that the seminar is part of a series of activities by the LLS to enhance access to regional and international justice mechanisms in Liberia.

Pajibo said the Liberia Law Society has undertaken a project to promote regional and international justice mechanisms in the country by helping citizens to understand the workings of the three courts and how they can seek legal redress from these courts when the need arises.

“The ECOWAS Court, the African Court and the International Criminal Court (ICC) seek to introduce these facilities to broaden the understanding of Liberians in order to avail themselves to these courts as alternative justice processes,” Pajibo stated.

Pajibo noted that the seminar, which is continuing in other counties, also intends to encourage Liberian citizens to seek professional careers within the three courts.

The seminar featured interactions among the participants and facilitators who provided in-depth explanations on the establishment of the three courts, jurisdiction, membership, and complaint mechanisms, among others.

Meanwhile, participants at the one-day Liberia Law Society seminar in Gbarnga have hailed the LLS for providing knowledge on the workings of the ECOWAS court, the African Court and the International Criminal Court.

They believe the knowledge provided will help them in promoting peace and access to justice and pledged to share their understanding of the three courts with others citizens who did not form part of the seminar
