The two facilities come with solar powered boreholes and generator sets to ensure uninterrupted power supply, residential accommodation for judges, male and female cells to detain remanded and convicted suspects being prepared for prison.

Justice Annin Yeboah explained that the commissioning is part of efforts to deal with the poor state of physical infrastructure, which had over the years militate against effective operations of the courts.

He noted that the working environment must not only be conducive for productivity but must also reflect the authority and dignity of the Judiciary.

He said the indispensable contributions of the Judiciary to the country’s robust constitutional democracy, the culture of rule of law as well as the maintenance of peace and stability could not be overemphasized and therefore urged the surrounding communities to utilise the courts and further admonished them to resort to the court connected Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) mechanism where necessary rather than go through stressful litigation with bitter endings.

The MCE said Asante-Akim South had been one of the biggest beneficiaries of the President’s vision to improve court infrastructure across the country through the District Assemblies Common Fund (DACF) and the Judicial Service.

Mr. Frimpong said the commissioning of the courts is a huge relief for the assembly considering the poor state of the existing Circuit Court at Juaso which was not conducive to the dispensation of justice.

He further noted that the installation of solar panel and generator sets in the two courts meant there was not going to be power interruption anymore, which was a complete departure from the situation where work had to stop anytime the national grid went off.

The MCE indicated that the people would desist from taking the law into their hands but rather seek redress at the court as law abiding citizens because of the court.
