Judiciary To Hold First-Ever Retreat

By Ballah M. Kollie

MONROVIA, May14 (LINA) – The Supreme Court of Liberia says it has finalized plans to hold a three-day retreat for Justices and Judges.

The retreat, which will run from May 17-20, is in execution of the plan developed by the judiciary to enhance its core values of competency, integrity, transparency, diligence and tolerance.

The retreat takes place in Gbarnga, Bong County and is the first of its kind in the history of the judiciary for Justices of the Supreme Court, Judges of Circuit and Specialized Courts as well as Magistrates from across the country to gather to evaluate and critique their own performance to enhance effectiveness and efficiency within that branch of government.

According to a release, the retreat will strategize a credible system for accountability, reflect on and discuss issues on the way forward for the Liberian judiciary.

The retreat is geared toward gaining for the judiciary the respect, trust and confidence of citizens and the international community, the release said.

“The three-day retreat is also meant to create an environment in which judges can sincerely retrospect on their respective roles and responsibilities in enhancing the work of the judiciary,” the release noted.

It said participants will discuss their shortcomings and how to improve on dispensing justice fairly, regardless of affiliation, creed and ethnicity and work collectively to dispel the negative notions and perceptions of the judiciary by working towards enhancing judicial performance through the just dispensation of the rule of law.
