Posted by on December 21, 2021 0

The Speaker of the Taraba State House of Assembly, Joseph Albasu Kunini, has warned that there would be no hiding place for criminal elements in the state.

Speaking shortly after the passage of the Taraba State Administration of Criminal Justice Bill, 2019, courts, according to him, have now been empowered for speedy dispensation of justice.

According to him, in the past, the hands of the judges in the state were tied because of bottlenecks and encumbrances in the speedy dispensation of justice in their courts.

“With the passage of this Bill into law today, there will be no hiding place for criminals in the State because it has empowered the judges to dispense speedy justice.”

Adding that “the purpose of this Bill that has just been passed into law is to ensure that the system of administration of criminal justice in the State promotes efficient management of criminal justice institutions , speedy dispensation of justice, protection of society from crime, etc.”

He then called on the courts, law enforcement agencies and other authorities or persons involved in criminal justice administration in the State to ensure compliance with the provisions of the law to rid the State of criminal elements.

The Speaker who also thanked his colleagues for their support and cooperation which led to the passage of the 177-page Bill into law by the State House of Assembly, as noticed by DAILY POST, directed the Clerk of the House, Mella Orngu, to produce clean copies of the bill for assent by the number one citizen of the state.
