The support is in continuation of efforts to improve the Court’s facility since its renovation by UNDP’s Justice and Security Programme in 2011, with the aim to foster the delivery of quality justice services, and enhance access to justice by residents of Lofa County.
The items include executive desks, chairs, filing cabinets, a 5kva generator, computers, benches, conference tables, air conditioners and an ice box.
