Bill for Corruption Court Lands at Senate

first_imgSenator Jewel Howard Taylor has submitted to Senate plenary a letter asking for their attention, review and subsequent endorsement of a draft Legislative Bill entitled: “An Act to amend Title 17 of the Penal Code Laws of Liberia, known as the Judiciary Law of 1972; to provide for the establishment of the Corruption Court of Liberia.”She said the draft Act is being submitted in response to the high level of alleged corruption cases and the public perception that the endemic and systematic corruption has engulfed “our governance structure; and that we the lawmakers have not shown enough political will to put in place the requisite structure, which will enable the Judiciary deal with corruption in a holistic way.”The Bong County lawmaker told her colleagues that it is her ardent desire that “in consideration of the urgency of the passage of this bill that we will do all within our power to expedite and have this critical draft bill into law.”Immediately upon passage of the Act, Corruption Courts will be created as specialized courts and established in each of the counties, initially commencing with Montserrado County. The procedure and enforcement of the mandate and judgments of the Corruption Court shall be the same as that of the Circuit Courts in criminal cases, except as modified in this act or the Rules of the Corruption Court as may be promulgated afterwards. The court will be composed of a panel of three judges, one of whom shall be called the Chief Judge and the administrative head of the court. Decisions of the court shall be by majority. The judges of the court shall have the power and authority to issue orders in the nature of writs of prohibition, to inferior courts and their officers; will aid the exercise of the appellate jurisdiction over said inferior courts. “In terms of appointment and tenure, the President “shall nominate, and with the consent of the Senate, appoint and commission three judges of the circuit court stature, who shall preside over the Corruption Court.”The Bill is now with the Senate Committee on Judiciary, chaired by Senator Varney G. Sherman. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

DOHERTY TO RAISE ISSUE OF DONEGAL GARDA RESOURCES IN DAIL TODAY

first_imgDonegal South West TD, Pearse Doherty will debate the issue of Garda resources in rural Donegal with Minister for Justice Alan Shatter in a Topical Issue Debate in the Dáil today at 2.30pm.Speaking in advance of the debate Deputy Pearse Doherty said it is becoming increasingly clear that the Gardaí in Donegal are inadequately resourced to respond to reports of crime.He said people in rural communities across the County are living in fear, with incidents of crime and anti social behaviour on the increase. “The recent incident in Kincasslagh, whereby it took the Gardaí over two hours to respond to an act of serious vandalism where a car was set alight, shows just how thin the resources are on the ground.“Unfortunately this is not an isolated example – people in border and rural areas are reporting similar concerns with Gardaí response times.“The threat of the possible removal of the Garda District Headquarters in west Donegal further heightens the concern felt by locals and highlights just how out of touch certain Department officials are with the policing needs of rural communities.“The Minister for Justice needs to recognise that the closure of rural Garda Stations and the lack of adequate Garda resources is having a massive detrimental impact on the effective policing of local communities. He needs to step up to the mark and address the very real concerns felt by people on the ground,” he said.  DOHERTY TO RAISE ISSUE OF DONEGAL GARDA RESOURCES IN DAIL TODAY was last modified: October 17th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:dailGarda resourcesPearse Dohertylast_img read more
