Lira Magistrate Court Paralyzed By Strike
By Amony Immaculate
As the judicial officers’ strike enters second week with government yet to give their position on the salary increment demand by the striking officers, most people who turned up for their court session scheduled for today have expressed dismay, asking the government to take an immediate action.
Akite Lucy from Bala in Kole District, asked the President to come to their rescue. Imat Lucumeri Awio of Apac and Mze Ebuu Morish of Chegere Sub county were seated yet to wait if at all there could be any court business.
Advocates were not exceptional of this, as Boniface Odongo a legal Adjutant with Oyugi Onono and company advocates narrates.
He added that to their clients they are requesting them to remain calm and wait for communications pending the outcome of the strike.
The Resident State Attorney says they are hard hit by the strike as there is no magistrate to remand the suspects and so have advised the police to grand police bond to suspect as required by the law.
