According to him, “Findings have shown that lack of conclusion of some of these cases on time seemed to create an impression among criminals that they can carry out crimes and not be punished.

“It is our view that when such cases are dealt with expeditiously and those found guilty are punished, it will deter others hoping to engage in criminal acts.”

The new Chief Judge, while responding assured to serve the State with integrity, honesty and justice, pledging to do his best to ensure that the rule of law was adhered to at all times.
