Mampong gets new magistrate court building

law-and-justiceA GH¢400,000 Magistrate Court building has been inaugurated at Mampong with a reminder to Ghanaians to live within the confines of the law.

Justice Reuben Batu, Supervising High Court Judge in Kumasi, said under no circumstance should they take the law into their own hands.

They should always seek redress of perceived injustices in the courts, he said.

The Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) provided the funding for the construction of the project, which took two years to complete.

Justice Batu urged the people to show ownership of the building by assisting to keep it in good condition at all times.

He also expressed the appreciation of the Judicial Service to the Omanhene of Mampong for making land readily available for the project.

Justice Dennis Adjei, an Appeal Court Judge, urged the staff of the Service to uphold a high sense of integrity and professionalism in the performance of their duties.

He said bringing the court closer to the people is meant to ensure that they have access to justice administration.

Mr Daniel Appau-Ohyeamang, the Municipal Chief Executive, and Mr Francis Addae-Nimoh, the Member of Parliament, hailed the successful completion of the project, describing it as refreshing.

Mr Ohyeamang advised the youth to desist from criminal activities and acts of misconduct to avoid trouble with the law.
