-Says Carter Center
Carter Center Chief of Party, Pewee Flomoku affirmed that traditional and customary interferences are not healthy for the rule of law. According to him, the Liberian justice system is faced with many challenges and as such, the issue of traditional and customary interferences must be addressed as it undermine and weaken the functionaries of the justice system in Liberia.

Flomoku made the disclosure to Internews Women Journalist Fellows recently at his office on 3rd Street, Sinkor when he spoke on a wide range of national issues.
He maintained that both ways of handling cases are not good for developing country like Liberia because it denies aggrieved parties from channeling their matters through legal means by way of the justice system.

He named long distances and perception as major factors of people not accessing justice through the proper channel. The center chief of party maintained that criminal cases should not be mediated for any reasons because “these crimes are against humanity and those persons should face justice for themselves.” Meanwhile, the center chief of party is calling for the passage of the Local Government Act since according to him it has lots of benefits attached. Flomoku noted that the instrument when passed will form part of the achievement of government and 53rd legislature.

He further added that his institution is working with different partners to ensure that the Local Government Act is passed. Flomoku, however, said funding is currently a globally challenge especially now that the country will be going through a transition in October.

He also named perception as another challenge for the institution, noting that “working with the mind is a process because people are accustomed to settling things.”

“The issue of connectivity is a big challenge for us, because our staffs have to travel to hard-to-reach areas and they need security to enable them carry out their functions”, the Carter Center boss emphasized.
