Judges & magistrates

22 January 2018

Dear Editor – Very interesting to read comments from the Hon. Chief Justice during the opening of 2018 legal year, especially the issue of reviewing the terms and conditions of Judges and Magistrates.

When you compare their output performances as raised by Attorney General regarding long delay in cases, it is not a good indicator of such call.

The call does not hold water and does not make economic sense.

Firstly, the issue of performance, secondly, the economy and government financial capability and thirdly, the existing gap between other Public Servants remunerations and Magistrates and Judges remunerations.

If our Courts are here to promote justice to people of Solomon Islands, then the same principle should exist within the mind of our leaders.

Remember that what we do good on earth, we will receive great blessings in Heaven.
