Presiding Magistrate of the Freetown Magistrate Court No 1, Samuel Milton Margai was on Friday 24th October 2008 elevated to a High Court Judge of Sierra Leone during a ceremony held at the Law Court Chambers of the Chief Justice of the Republic of Sierra Leone, Umu Hawa Tejan-Jalloh.

Her Lady, the Hon. Ag. Chief Justice Umu Hawa Tejan-Jalloh & His Lordship the High Court Judge, Hon. Justice Samuel Milton Margai looking to the future...


Acting Chief Justice, Umu Tejan-Jalloh in her statement says “it is with pride and privilege for me to swear in Judge Samuel Margai and to also commend him over his elevation to this position of a High Court Judge of Sierra Leone.”


She disclosed that she had known Judge Samuel Margai for a long time now, while adding that Margai had never been found wanton of any criminal offence.

“Margai is a respectful, obedient and hardworking gentleman,” she proudly stated as she explained his rapid elevation in the legal profession.


Although she is a devout Muslim, the Ag. Chief Justice who attended a Christian Missionary school, quoted  from the Bible’s Deuteronomy Chapt. 1 Vs 16-17 which she described as her favourite Biblical verse that reads thus: “And I charge you judges at that time, hear the cases between your brethren, and judge righteously between a man and his brother and alien that is with him; you shall not be partial in judgment, you shall hear the small and the great alike; you shall not be afraid of the face of man for judgment is God’s.”


After taking the oath of office, the Hon. Justice Samuel Milton Margai disclosed that he had been a member of the bench for the past ten (10) years, while adding that he had a wealth of experience as a young practitioner prior to becoming a magistrate.


He expressed happiness on his new position and promised to discharge his duties without fear or favour, adding: “I will always deal with matters as they arrive and I pray to God for guidance and support.”
