The Senior Managing Partner of the Henries Law Firm on Benson Street, Cllr. Cooper W. Kruah, Sr. said the Liberian Judiciary is not weak.
Cllr. Kruah made the assertion in rebuttal to claims by many persons that the Liberian judiciary is weak. However Cllr. Kruah described the nation’s Judiciary system as being more reformed and improved.
Cllr. Kruah made these remarks last Wednesday, October 30, 2013 at his office when he was certificated for his invaluable services to many Liberians who cannot afford legal fees, including the broader segment of society by a pro-democracy group, Society for the Promotion of Peace, National Reconciliation and Reunification (SPNRL) as a Very Good and Reliable Lawyer of the Year.
The legal practitioner indicated that the judiciary under its new leadership has embarked on a vigorous campaign to overhaul the capacity of its personnel through various training programs, refresher courses as well as workshops in a continuous effort to ensure independence and professionalism.
He added that the James E.E. Pierre Judicial Institute is currently engaged in the training of judicial officers, magistrates and other personnel to upgrade their skills in dispensing justice in the court system of Liberia.
For his part, the National Chairman of SPNRL, Mr. J. Mayfield Copson, during the presentation of the award to the honoree, commended him for his outstanding performance in the adjudication of cases over the years thereby bringing relief to his many clients through his successful legal battles.
Mr. Copson also admonished Cllr. Kruah to use the award as a benchmark to propel him to higher heights in his legal sojourn.
Meanwhile, Cllr Kruah has called on all stakeholders, the Liberian media and all Liberians to converge in Nimba County this month for the hosting of the Nimba Bar Association convention.
