Leave them to Discharge their Duties – CJ tells Family and Friends of New Magistrates

The Chief Justice, His Lordship Justice Anin Yeboah, has cautioned family and friends of Judges and Magistrates not to interfere with
their work but rather guard and protect them from undue pressures and influences.

“On this memorable occasion, I would like to send out a very simple message to your families and friends herein
gathered to leave you alone to discharge your duties in accordance with the oaths you have sworn. Distinguished
ladies and gentlemen, it would be remiss on my part if I do not draw attention to the possible future attempt by
litigating parties, either acting by themselves or through other agents, to exploit your relationship with our new
Magistrates to their selfish ends. So I urge you to be on your guard and quick to take up the challenge of fiercely
protecting your kith and kin from undue pressures or influences. Proud as you are as families and friends to these
new Judicial Officers we do honour today, you have a patriotic duty and oral obligation to assist them to protect
the sanctity of the office they occupy”, he said.

Justice Anin Yeboah was speaking at a Swearing-in of eight Magistrates at the Supreme Court in Accra.
