Chief Justice Opens Kotobabi District Court

Her Ladyship the Chief Justice, Justice Gertrude Sackey Torkornoo has inaugurated a new District Court at Kotobabi in the Ayawaso Central Municipality of Accra, with an admonition to residents not to pay any unauthorized fees to court staff for court services.

                         The Chief Justice said citizens were only required to pay approved fees at the courts in exchange for court services
                          and not make any extra payments to court staff who are duly remunerated by the State for their work at the end of the month.


                                                                                                     Court Building


                          Chief Justice Sackey Torkornoo urged the staff of the Judicial Service who would be working in the new court facility
                          to exhibit a high level of professionalism in their work and conduct, to increase public confidence in the justice system.





                         The new District Court which was constructed by Ayawaso Central Municipal Assembly with resources from the
                         District Assembly Common Fund, has an office space for the various court functions and washrooms for staff and court users.



                                                       Chief Justice Gertrude Sackey Torkornoo addressing the gathering


                        The Chief Justice commended the Ayawaso Central Municipal Assembly for taking on the challenge to construct
                         the court complex to address the justice needs of residents of Kotobabi and surrounding communities.

                        “Justice emanates from the people and shall be administered by the Judiciary. The administration of justice must
                         therefore be brought to the doorsteps of citizens, so that they have recourse to it with the minimum of effort,” she noted.



                                                             Hon. Archibold Mac Amoasie Cobbina, MCE, giving his remarks


                         In his remarks, Municipal Chief Executive for Ayawaso Central, Archibold Mac Amoasie Cobbina, said the establishment
                         of the court was a boost to the decentralisation of justice, noting that it would ease the burden of residents who previously
                         had to move out of the Municipality to access justice in other suburbs of the capital.


                                                                                          Invited guests in attendance


                         He urged residents of the Municipality and citizens to have confidence in the justice delivery system and assured the
                         public of the Assembly’s commitment to maintain the new court facility in order to prolong its lifespan.



                                                                         Invited guests in attendance

The ceremony was attended by members of the Assembly, traditional leaders and the clergy.
