BRINGING the rule of law closer to people remains a priority for the national judiciary.

Chief Justice Sir Albert Palmer remind lawyers during the opening of the Legal year to do all they can to achieve and improve on the most worthy of goals both centrally and out in the Districts and Provinces.

He highlighted that adequate infrastructure continues to be an issue and sticks out like sore thumb every now and again with limited office space, supporting facilities and equipment.

These are the People’s Courts and apart from the delivery of judicial services the people deserve to come to court to have their disputes resolved in a peaceful, safe, secure and comfortable environment, Sir Albert said.

“We cannot continue to rely on donor assistance and it is high time the Government gets down to business in ensuring it courts in the country are properly accommodated with adequate buildings, facilities and equipment,” Sir Albert added.
