Four judges yesterday resumed work at the High Courts complex in Banjul, after being given their letters of appointment.

These judges are to be presiding over, among others, cases which have been left unattended to since December 2016, as a result of the political impasse, which made many of the judges to return to their native countries.

According to judicial sources, these four judges were given their appointment letters during the weekend, and asked to resume work yesterday, Monday 20 March 2017.

The judges are Hon. Justice Martins U. Okoi at the Civil and Commercial Division, Hon. Justice Simon A. Abi at the Criminal Division, Hon. Justice Edward Ogar from Brikama now at the Lands and Civil Division, and Hon. Justice O. Agboola from the Appeals Division to the court of former Justice Ottaba (Special Criminal Court).
