The United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) has completed construction work on the Weasua Town Magisterial Court and Police Depot, under its Quick Impact Projects in Gbarpolu County.
Disclosing this to the Liberia News Agency (LINA) at the weekend, an official of the UNMIL Civil Affairs Section in Bopolu City, Mr. Francis Nyenpan, said the combined cost of the two structures is about US$50,000.
He said the construction of the facilities followed a careful assessment by UNMIL in the Weasua belt, which necessitated the projects to enhance the justice system in that part of the county.
According to Mr. Nyenpan, the Magisterial Court contains offices for a Judge, Clerk, Clerical staff and rest rooms, while the Police Depot has several offices, rest rooms and prison cells.
Meanwhile, several officials of the county, including the Circuit Court Judge George Wiles, Assistant Superintendent for Development, Yassah Karmon-Fallah; County Attorney Stephen Kerwilliams; Police Commander Jacob Comehn and PSU Commander Prince Hena, have visited Weasua to inspect the buildings.
At the same time, citizens of Weasua have commended UNMIL for constructing the structures in their area.
They said the buildings will help to speed up the administration of justice, the absence of which has, over the years, hampered the rule of law.
