Foundation work on new court complex starts

From an idea that came about more than 20 years ago during the time of Chief Justice Sir Arnold Amet, the foundation phase of the new building commenced on Friday afternoon with a small but significant ceremony for the judiciary. 

Chief Justice Sir Salamo Injia officiated the ground breaking ceremony signifying the commencement of the main construction phase valued at K427 million which will culminate three separate courts.

Sir Salamo said the judiciary would like to see the building completed before the APEC meet so it can be commissioned during the event.
