In Sierra Leone, SLP Holds Restorative Justice Workshop

The Sierra Leone Police in collaboration with the Justice Sector Coordinating Office has concluded a four-day workshop on Informal Resolution and Restorative Justice at the China Friendship Complex, Bo City on Tuesday 13th to Friday 16th July 2010.


Welcoming participants, the Assistant Inspector General of Police South, David Sesay expressed his deepest appreciation for such a project to be hosted in the Southern Region. He noted that the dispensation of justice should not be a unilateral venture by the police but to be enforced with collaborative efforts of all stakeholders.

 

In his presentation, Police Personnel Welfare officer, Al-Shek Kamara said that the SLP discovered that the Judiciary was not capacitated and resourced enough to handle the huge number of cases sent to courts which has caused members of the public to lose confidence in the judicial system. The process he said was designed to compliment the effort of the courts by providing for victims a speedy, just and efficient outcome that addresses the root causes of their disputes and to further enhance societal harmony. He allayed the fears of traditional chiefs that the project was not designed to take over their responsibilities, but to compliment their efforts especially on criminal matters that fall within the purview of the police.


Delivering the Keynote address, the Mayor of Bo City, Dr. Wusu Sannoh thanked the SLP and the Justice Sector Coordinating Office for spearheading such a laudable and timely project.


The Mayor said his council has the responsibility to keep the peace, and that they cannot do their work in a community beset with much palaver and threats to the rule of law. He applauded the work of the Local Policing Partnership Board as major asset to the SLP in the fight against Crime.


The Acting Principal State Counsel South, Monfred Momoh Sesay noted that the project would help to decongest police stations the courts and the prisons of criminals.

 

The workshop was climaxed with the distribution of certificates to one hundred participants.
