Morobe judicial services to reach rural areas

The National Judicial Services in Morobe Province will soon reach rural areas.

Residential Judge in Lae, Justice Don Sawong, said they will bring the work of the judicial services out to the districts of Morobe.

"We would like to bring the judicial services to the people. We have visited Bulolo and Finschhafen in the past and now, we would like to include the other five districts as well," he said.

Justice Sawong stated that crime has increased at an alarming rate, with them receiving between 25-30 crimes each month. He wondered whether police are doing their job or lawlessness is increasing.

Meanwhile, the Morobe Provincial Administration has given K500,000 to the National Judicial Services for renovation work.

Morobe Governor Kasiga Kelly Naru said they had a partnership program in place for the Court systems and the fund is to renovate the infrastructure.
