Hundred and Fifty criminal cases line-up for High Court

…Manslaughter, murder, conspiracy and store breaking etc, etc, etc

Officials of the High Court are currently having a very busy schedule compiling criminal cases for the forthcoming reopening of the criminal session of the High Court. Although effort have been made by the Judiciary to speedily conclude all backlog cases in the Country, yet there are still some files that are inconclusive on the shelves.

During the recess, vacation Judges are posted to the provincial towns of Bo, Kenema, Makeni, Kono and other parts of the Country to conclude cases that accused persons have spent years in prison languishing.

At the Kenema High Court about a total of Four Hundred files were being looked into and partially concluded, which have given extra duty to the Acting Chief Justice to post another vacation Judge after the initial one sent to conclude all cases. In Bo and other parts of the Country similar effort and practices were implemented to conclude all backlogs.

In Freetown, the Headquarter, officials of the Judiciary have been working round the clock to see that all backlogs are brought forward for the attention of Judges when the criminal session resumes in September.

Apart from this effort that was put in place to wrap up cases, vacation Judges have been assigned to work for extra two weeks on matters that have not concluded during the regular schedule.

Judicial sources say the vacation Judges assigned to complete the task are doing extremely well, which would see most of the backlogs be considered a thing of the past.

The sources explained that this recent compilation of cases is to commence in the next criminal session after the break in September.”We are short of Judges, which is a serious problem with the Judiciary” The sources remarked.

In Sierra Leone recruitment of Judges and promotion are issues that are not giving the relevant prominence and consideration, which should not be the case as justice is a very vital component that requires urgent attention. “If there are enough Judges, there would have been less or no delay in the administration of Justice, but due to this unsolved problem Justice continues to delay and victims seeking Justice are perishing everyday in search of it.

Meanwhile, reports state that effort is being made by the Acting Chief Justice to recruit more Judges, but when this will happen is the unsolved question that is begging for answer.

WARRANT OF ARREST FOR CHINESE VESSELS Abandoned

SHERIFF OF THE HIGH COURT NEGLECTS ORDER

The 1991 Constitution of Sierra Leone makes provision for the Inspector General of Police to be the Sheriff of the High Court. This is done with the consideration that he is head of the Sierra Leone Police and in his/her capacity the demands and wishes of the Court can be enforced when asked to do so when instructions are received from a Judge of a competent Court. It would appear that despite this responsibility and expectation, the Country’s Inspector General of Police Mr. Francis Munu is either neglecting it or most time wave it with the back of the hand. This behavior from the Inspector General of Police that is expected to be neutral has left many people frustrated. Many aggrieved people expecting responses from the Sheriff of the High Court based on instructions from the Superior Courts are asking questions as to why such lukewarm or selective actions are coming from the Inspector General, but many a time these questions have gone without any answer from the authority(ies) concerned.

A case in point that a Warrant obtained by Lawyer Kaifala of Conteh and Co, 81 Pademba Road from the High Court which was to be executed has been abandoned for no reason that the Sheriff who should give assistance and support for the implementation and realization of the Warrant to be achieved.

The Warrant of Arrest demands that eight Chinese Vessels are to be apprehended and put under safe arrest until further instructions are received.

The eight vessels are the subject of a conflict between the Plaintiff/Applicant Mohammed Bangura and three Defendants involving Dallan Shenghai Ocean, Abie Aruna Koroma and Monza Fishing Company.

For the parties involved to have a fair play, Lawyer Kailfala representing the Applicant applied for a Warrant of Arrest of the Vessels until the matter before the Court is resolved.

The expectation of the Applicant that the Order of the Court which was endorsed by the Master and Registrar would have been honoured and properly implemented, but left at the mercy of those who care and respect a document of such nature.

This neglect has become a silent torture to the Applicant and its legal representation as they least expected the Sheriff of the High Court to treat such relevant and legal document with contempt or neglect.
