The Mayor, speaking at the inaugural ceremony of an ultra-modern Circuit Court at Atasemanso in the Nhyiaeso sub-metro of the KMA said the project is a result of the collective effort of the Ministry of Local Government, Decentralization and Rural Development, the District Assembly Common Fund Secretariat and the Judicial Service.
The Chief Justice, His Lordship Justice Anin Yeboah stated that the inauguration of the Circuit Court is in fulfillment of the strategic vision of the Judicial Service to enhance the citizen's access to quality justice by establishing courts in close proximity to users who travel long distances for justice.
He further commended the Ministry of Local Government, Decentralization and Rural Development, and the Administrator of the DACF for providing regular funding support for the project.
The Atasemansohene, Nana Owusu Barima III, expressed appreciation to the Chief Justice and the government for the fast development of the criminal justice system at Atasemanso and its surrounding towns.
He said, the community has an existing Police Station which enforces laws and maintains public order and the establishment of the Circuit Court will take care of the original jurisdiction in all criminal matters in the community and therefore promised that his office would be opened to all members of staff employed by the court who may need assistance.
