Chief Justice to Announce Vision and Reforms For Judiciary on Monday

Since taking office last year, Justice Torkornoo seems to be driven towards changing certain public perceptions about the courts and the justice system

Ghana’s Chief Justice, Gertrude Torkornoo has said she intends to share her vision for the judicial on Monday, April 8, as part of new reforms aimed at “effective justice delivery.”

At a meeting with the press on Thursday, Justice Torkornoo said the decision is prompted by the need to stay accountable to Ghanaians in terms of how justice is administered.

“It is an articulation of my vision and how the steps I believe can assist all of us to bring the justice that we want to the people of Ghana. On Monday at the International Conference Center, we will have that launching of my vision, and an outreach to the entire nation to assist in bringing justice to you the way we should,” she told reporters.

Her initiative is quite unusual, as the judiciary, (and especially the office of the Chief Justice) rarely holds media engagements or talks about accountability. But since taking office last year, Justice Torkornoo seems to be driven towards changing certain public perceptions about the courts and the justice system – chief among them being corruption, and delays in case adjudication. And so last month, she introduced a court shift system that would allow some courts to sit in the evenings.
