The Chief Justice (CJ) Kwasi Anin-Yeboah, has promised to set up a High Court at Dormaa-Ahenkro in the Bono Region.
The Court would facilitate the prosecution of cases in the Dormaa Central Municipality, the Dormaa East and West Districts and other adjoining municipalities and districts.
Justice Anin-Yeboah gave the promise when he paid a courtesy call on Osagyefo Osaedeeyo Dr. Kwabena Agyeman-Badu II, the Paramount Chief of Dormaa Traditional Area on Thursday at Dormaa-Ahenkro.
Accompanied by a high-powered Judicial Service official, including Justice Patrick Bayeh, the Supervising High Court Judge in Sunyani and Mr. Ernest Offei Ayeh, a Principal State Attorney, the CJ was in the area to inaugurate a special court designated for women and children.
Justice Anin-Yeboah said the setting up of the High Court was in the right direction, saying it would be a befitting legacy he could bequeath to the chiefs and people of Dormaa Traditional Area.
He said the chiefs and people of the area were privileged to benefit from one of the four special courts being constructed by UNICEF in the country to prosecute cases, particularly gender-based violence.
Osagyefo Dr. Agyeman-Badu II, also the President of the Bono Regional House of Chiefs, expressed appreciation to the CJ for the Court and commended him for improving infrastructural development in the Judicial Service.
Earlier, Barimah Oppong Yaw Buabasa Ababio, the Gyaasehene of Dormaa Traditional Area appealed for the High Court in the area.
He said Dormaa-Ahenkro had only a District Court that could not handle certain cases.
