The Criminal Session of the High Court in Solwezi has officially opened with a call on all legal practitioners to be impartial in their service to inspire confidence in the public.

High Judge Timothy Katanekwa noted with sadness the increase of criminal and civil cases due to the many economic activities in the province.

Judge Mr Katenekwa indicated on the need for legal practitioners to be objective in their work in order to dispose of cases quickly.

Also speaking at the opening ceremony of the High Court in Solwezi, North-Western Province Minister Nathaniel Mubukwanu emphasized on the need to uphold an efficient and effective judicial system.

Mr Mubukwanu said both public and private institutions must embrace justice and be accountable to communities they are mandated to serve.

With the Solwezi Municipal Council Fast Track Court established, the opening of the High Court of Criminal Sessions will quicken the resolution of matters adjudicated to the High Court.

Moreover, the Fast Track Court will help to dispose of matters fast in an effort to decongest the Magistrate Court.
