Chief Justice Sophia Adinyira Akufo has visited courts within Asamankese, capital of the West Akim Municipality.
This forms part of the tour embarked by the Chief Justice earlier this year.
Various courts within the country are been visited by the Chief Justice in order to ascertain particular challenges confronting the various courts and thereafter aid in the eradication of such challenges.
At Asamankese, the Lady Justice visited firstly the community court where she lauded the Assembly for the nice edifice.
At the circuit court, however, Madam Sophia Akufo expressed concern over the whole artifact and chairs used by the court workers.
She mentioned that the structure of the court edifice poses security threats and therefore requested the Municipal Assembly to put up a new building to serve as a court.
The court workers also agreed to the suggestion whilst they recounted how a suspect bolted right after he was handed a six-year jail term with efforts to rearresting him proving futile.
The Municipal Chief Executive Seth Oduro Boadu whilst speaking to the press at the end of the tour expressed his readiness as well as the Assembly’s willingness to put up a new building to serve as a court.
He mentioned that the judicial system cannot be underrated since it is the pivot of justice delivery.
“I including my team shall do whatever possible to get the judiciary a new court building at Asamankese, justice delivery cannot be toyed with, we, therefore, have to ensure that they have a befitting complex to operate in” he mentioned.
The MCE also mentioned that other wants of the judicial service within the municipality will be prioritized.
The Chief Justice has visited so many courts within various regions, municipals and districts of the country with dramatic situations unfolding.
She has expressed concern over court premises that are in dilapidated state.
