The Law courts building which houses the Chambers of the Chief Justice of Sierra Leone (Judiciary) located at Siaka Stevens Street Freetown, a building which is a pride of Sierra Leone structurally, where almost all cases in Freetown are tried is now in a deplorable condition from the inside.
Despite all the crème de la crème of honorable legal luminaries who academically rob shoulders in there, it seems no justice is done to the sewage system right inside the precincts of the court.
The toilet system leaves much to be desired.
Speaking to Awoko, the Master and Registrar of the Judiciary explained that the sewage has broken, making the whole place stink.
He further said that there is no water in the court and they usually go out of court to fetch water. In a way of solving this shameful condition, he says that they had contacted the Freetown City Council (FCC) to settle this problem because it is a very important issue that is affecting the judiciary as a whole.
Speaking to a complainant (name withheld) who was disgruntled about the odor of the court. She said the public toilet is 100% more decent than the others though it is expensive for the ordinary people, adding that the public pays Le300.
