Government To Fast-track Formation Of Judiciary Commissions

President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed 'Farmaajo' on Thursday toured offices of the High Court, Appeals Court and Banadir Regional Court, and reaffirmed his government's commitment to put extra effort into fast-tracking creation of the country's judicial institutions. President Farmaajo noted his government will further concentrate on guaranteeing the rights of the country's judicial workers so that they can diligently serve the Somali public and ensure a fair and transparent justice service. He further said the government was working on a plan to establish the Judicial Service Commission, whose bill will be presented to the government's top branches for validation. "We are still lacking the Judicial Service Commission and The Constitutional Court, that are pillars for the government's balance. We are working on the bill of the Judicial Service Commission, which will soon be presented to Parliament for approval," noted President Farmaajo. During a special meeting with the courts' judges, he urged them to provide fair judicial services to people in disputes and to safeguard the heavy responsibility they bear for the country. "You are supposed to avoid corruption, people seeking justice are expected to run to you and not to run away from you. You should be the manufacturers of the country's governance and not be among those who contribute to its downfall. You are also expected to serve the people fairly and without favour.”
