least 46 Cadis and Scribes have been recently certificated after attending a
two-day training on the use of English language, organized by The Gambia
Judiciary Training and Research Institute in partnership with ICBusiness
Held at the Judiciary Training and Research Institute at Mile7 in Bakau, the training aimed at improving and enhancing capacity of the Cadis and Scribes on the use of English language to enhance their skills in the effective use of the language both verbal and written to enable them to deliver their judgment in English rather than in Arabic.
ICBussiness Solution chief executive officer Isatou Conateh said the training is undoubtedly of great importance as part of participants’ continued personal development.
She cited that English language is one of the most spoken languages in the world, urging the participants to continue conducting online researches to increase their knowledge, which, she said, is of great importance.
According to her, participants have demonstrated their ability to improve upon English language, telling them that they have developed their skills by listening, reading and writing in English to be able to speak and understand the language.
Chairman of Cadi Appeal Court Omar Secka said within the two days, they have realized the importance of using English language in their daily work as Cadis in their courts. “I hope that after the end of this training we will filter the information to those who couldn’t attend this training and put things into practice. I also hope that we will keep on developing our skills of writing, speaking and dealing with English language in the Cadi Courts.
Mr. Secka said it is known that justice cannot prevail in the absence of Cadi Courts, saying that shows how important Cadi Courts are. “We should also dedicate ourselves to always acquire more skills to enable us to do our duty accordingly as expected.”
President of the Gambia Court of Appeal and head of the Research institute Justice Hawa Bah thanked the participants for their willingness and participation in the training, saying it was held at a time when the judiciary is on the verge of quality justice delivery with high quality professionalism. She also thanked ICBussiness Solution and the lecturer for their partnership, while urging the participants to make the best use of the knowledge gained from the training.
