Port Loko High Court session is waste of time – natives say

Port Loko, Nov. 12 (SLENA) – The November High Court Session in the Judiciary District of Port Loko can be described as not only a mere waste of time and resources, but also a clear demonstration of an unjustified manner in which innocent and defenceless people can be incarcerated with impunity.

A situation attributed to lapses in communication between the Judiciary and the Office of the Attorney General whereby the usual tradition wherein the State Counsel ensures that things are in their proper order before a Court could commence a session has since been changed.

Sources say the presiding Judge, Hon. Justice John Bosco Allieu has is conditioned to arrive and keep waiting for hours for the other members of the court to show up.

Sources disclosed for two consecutive sessions the court cannot open for Cases to be heard.  The presiding Judge,  Justice John Bosco Allieu, the Registrar, Luseni Rogers and the District Bailiff, Edward Heroe are still waiting for the Regional State Counsel, Yusif Koroma to report for duty, probably for logistical reasons.

It is highly apparent that much could not be achieved even if the State Counsel should avail his himself now because the accused persons and sureties are yet to be issued with indictments.

The November High Court Session in Port Loko, had a total number of 16 cases including one murder, unlawful possession of fire arms, store breaking and larceny.
