New judicial infrastructure to serve Momase region

A new national judicial services infrastructure will be built in Lae.

A National Court of Appeal and five National Court Houses will be built opposite the Angau Memorial Hospital. These infrastructure will serve the Momase region.

Lae residential Judge Justice Don Sawong revealed this during the week.

"The new national judicial services will serve the Momase region. The old one will be used by the magisterial services," he said.

These new infrastructure will cost around K100 million.

He said these will be on the portion of land that has been allocated to the Law and Justice Department.

The new infrastructure will relieve both the National Judicial Services and the Magisterial Services in terms of space, as the current location is too crowded.

(Police will be one of the major beneficiaries as well)
