Resolve JUSAG issue quickly

Listen to article

Tema, May 23, GNA - Mr Mathias Kwasi Yakah, a lawyer and human rights advocate, has called for quick resolution of the labour dispute between government and the Judicial Staff Association of Ghana (JUSAG) which has resulted in the shut down of all courts nationwide.

According to him, the fate of many people on remand, police cells and even in prisons are hanging because there is no court to give them a hearing.

In an interview with the Ghana News Agency, he said" Justice should always flow like an endless stream because any blockage would result in serious repercussions for human rights and freedoms."

He appealed to JUSAG and government to engage and find a common ground in the matter.

"I would not blame any of the parties for the stand-off but I think the dispute should not last long because we can never fathom the consequences of the strike on the administration of justice."

The JUSAG embarked on an indefinite strike on Wednesday over unpaid allowances.
