North to get four new courts

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - NEWS - BY DAYASEELI LIYANAGE

The Min­istry of Jus­tice has taken steps to es­tab­lish four new courts in the North with an al­lo­ca­tion of Rs.1,500 mil­lion, mon­i­tor­ing Min­is­ter of Jus­tice Wi­jepala Het­tiarachchi said.

A sum of Rs.1,500 mil­lion has been al­lo­cated for the con­struc­tion of court build­ings in Manku­lam, Mul­laitivu, Kilinochch­i and Jaffna, the Min­is­ter said.

He had vis­ited the lo­ca­tions of these court build­ings last week to ob­serve the con­struc­tion work on the re­quest of Min­is­ter of Jus­tice and Pri­son Re­forms Tha­latha Athuko­rala and had found the con­struc­tion work pro­gress­ing well.

The conges­tion in courts is ex­pected to be eased with es­tab­lish­ment of the new courts in the North.
