Judges “undesirable” emotions hampering justice delivery – GBA

JudgesThe unguarded emotions of some Judges are getting in the way of justice delivery in the country, the Ghana Bar Association (GBA) has said.

According to the association, some judges in the country’s courts allow their emotions to get the better part of them during hearings at the courts.

“The GBA notes with concern the undesirable role of emotions of judges and magistrates in the adjudicatory process,” the President of the BAR, Nene Abayateye Amegatcher told the media at a news conference on Tuesday.

He urged the Judges to be mindful of the sacred role the constitution of the country has bestowed on them in the performance of their duties.

“The association reminds all judges and magistrates that while their patience maybe tried and tested in the cause of their duties by lawyers and litigants alike, it is incumbent on a judge while being firm to be firm and patients to litigants and lawyers alike.

“A judge who is habitually disrespectful or rude to litigants or lawyers risk losing his or her self-respect.”
