The Judicial Service on Tuesday expressed concern about a mob attack on the Registrar of the District Court at Dzodze in the Volta Region. The service called on the police to be up to their responsibility and maintain law and order especially at the precincts of the court.
A press release signed by Mr Justice Alex Poku Acheampong, Judicial Secretary, said it was unhappy about the news that an unruly youth had gone to the premises of the Dzodze District Court and beaten up the Registrar who had been accused of improper moral conduct and corruption.
“Much as we agree that public officials who misconduct themselves must be made to face the full rigours of the law and indeed, Her Ladyship the Chief Justice has set up a committee to investigate the allegations against the Registrar. The approach adopted by those who attacked the court was not right and should be condemned by all peace loving Ghanaians.”
The statement stated that there were grievance procedures which should be followed whenever any person had a compliant against any a staff, Magistrate or Judge. It added that the dissatisfied persons who attacked the court could petition the Supervising High Court Judge responsible for the region or the Complaints Unit of the Judicial Service or Office of the Chief Justice.
