first_imgVice President Joseph Boakai has said that the rule of law is crucial to the building of a vibrant democratic society in which the rights of all citizens are guaranteed.“There is no way a country can go on without the rule of law,” the VP said, when he visited with authorities of the 10th Judicial Circuit Court in Voinjama City, Lofa County, during his week-long post-Ebola tour. He visited the Court in order to acquaint himself with activities there.He further stated that the provision of logistics for the courts to do their work is critical to the legal process and promised that government will make sure that courts are properly empowered to do their work to ensure the rule of law in the country. The lack of these basic logistics has contributed to the slow pace of the dispensing of justice in the country, he said.He noted that Judge Nancy Finda Sammy, who was not present, had acquainted him with the challenges facing the court, including conveying prisoner(s) from other parts of the county and lack of transportation for the court’s operations.He praised her for restoring dignity to the court.The Tenth Judicial Circuit of Lofa County presented a document listing the critical needs and priorities of the court to the Vice President. The VP said he would consult with judicial authorities in Monrovia for proper redress.One of the requests that Mr. Foday A. Konneh, Coordinator, Lofa County Branch, National Association of Trial Judges, presented to the VP was that there be two pre-trial detention centers for holding accused persons until their conviction. They must be transferred to the Voinjama Central Prison. “One of these pre-trial detention centers should be located in Zorzor City to serve Zorzor and Salayea Districts. Another should be built in Kolahun City to serve Kolahun, Vahun and Foya Districts.”“As earlier discussed with you by Judge Sammy,” Konneh further stated, “we also wish to remind you of the dire need for vehicles to help transfer accused persons and convicts from various magisterial Courts as had been done by UNMIL.”Earlier, the Vice President toured the Voinjama Market where a new market building under the auspices of the Sirleaf Market Women Fund is being constructed. He also visited the Lofa County Community College to acquaint himself with the situation there.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgTwenty-year-old auto technician Victor Aditya Ram of Lot 496 Crane Housing Scheme, West Coast Demerara was killed in the wee hours of Sunday, while two of his friends are now hospitalised after the car in which they were travelling crashed into a metal signboard before slamming into a concrete fence at Vreed-en-Hoop, West Coast Demerara.Reports are that 23-year-old Bishram Ramkishore of Lot 29 Goed Fortuin, West Bank Demerara was driving motor car PTT 6297 along the Vreed-en-Hoop Public Road on the West Coast of Demerara with his friends Victor Aditya Ram and 23-year-old Kevin Henry of Lot 22 Goed Fortuin as passengers. At about 01:50h, while in the vicinity of the Hand-in-Hand Insurance Company, a pedestrian allegedly began crossing the road, and to avoid hitting this pedestrian, Ramkishore swerved his vehicle.In so doing, he lost control of the car, and it reportedly crashed into a metal signboard before slamming into a concrete fence that halted its mobility.All three young men sustained injuries, and were immediately rushed to the West Demerara Regional Hospital, where Aditya Ram was pronounced dead on arrival.Ramkishore is unconscious and in critical state at the Dr. Balwant Singh Hospital in Georgetown, while Henry is receiving medical attention at the West Demerara Regional Hospital (WDRH).Guyana Times visited the home of the dead man, whose father, Surijpaul Ram, related that based on what he was told, his son was flung out of the car and into the rubble of the broken fence. He explained that in a call he had received at about 01:30h, he was told to rush to the WDRH because his son had been involved in an accident.“But by the time we rush there, they tell we that he was pronounced dead on arrival. So like when he fling out of the vehicle he died,” the distraught father disclosed.Questioned on where Ram was heading at that hour, this father could not say, but he explained that the three occupants were all well known to each other.The man said he was told that someone had attempted to cross the road in front of the vehicle, which prompted Ramkishore to swerve the vehicle to avoid hitting the pedestrian, thereby ending up crashing into the fence of the insurance company.“I can’t say much, because only a handful people saw, and I could only tell you what they told me,” Ram explained. The man noted that he is unaware of the fate of the pedestrian whose action had allegedly resulted in the accident.The dead auto technician’s mother was too distraught to speak, and was being consoled by relatives and friends who turned up at the house upon receiving the devastating news.Ram has been described by his father as having been a very friendly and loving individual who had had a lot of friends. He leaves to mourn his parents and only sister.His body is at the Ezekiel Funeral Home awaiting a post mortem examination even as the Police continue their investigations into the fatal accident.last_img read more
