K20 million shortfall to back pay court officials

Since taking office as the minister for Justice, Bryan Kramer said he will make it his priority to put court officials who have been without pay over the years on the payroll.      

In a recent press conference, the minister revealed that the government has a short fall of K20 million to back pay the officials.

In 2015, the government decided that every village court should have additional two peace officers and two magistrates. However, the government did not have the budget support to fund the officials.
