Justice Banda saddened by backlog of cases

 

Kasama, 14/01/15-ZANIS—Justice Alinesse Banda-Bobo has noted that delayed analyst reports and the shortage of Pathologists at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) has contributed to the backlog of cases pending in the High Court sessions.

 

Justice Bobo said  delayed instructions from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) office is also a source of concern as it sometimes take over one year before a docket can be presented to court.

 

 

She  has since appealed to government to put up testing facilities across the country and train more Pathologists in order to allow for quick dispensation of justice.

 

 

Justice Bobo also called on the police to ensure that before a docket is sent to the DPP it should be fully completed as sending it back to his office will result into dragging on to the cases.

 

 

She  was speaking this during the ceremonial opening of the 2015 High Court session of the Northern and Muchinga Provinces on Monday this week.

 

ZANIS reports that  the Ndola based High Court Judge was however optimistic that with the creation of the National Prosecution Authority (NPA) the development will help in the quick disposition of criminal cases.

 

 

Justice Bobo also expressed concern at the under staffing levels of the Legal Aid office in the two regions which is being manned by only two staff.

 

 

She said despite all these challenges being experienced, the Judiciary will strive to live by its motto of achieving justice for all and appealed to government to put up more testing laboratories and train more pathologists to cut down on delays of criminal cases in courts.
