The Chairman of Interim Management Committee of the Judicial Service Staff Association (JUSAG), Mr. Francis Brako, has called on the government to, as a matter of urgency, release the outstanding subventions from May to September this year, else they would advise themselves.
Speaking at a press conference in Cape Coast on Tuesday, Mr. Brako said the government should stop dragging its feet in releasing the funds, because the incessant delay of subventions was gradually bringing to a halt the smooth, effective and efficient running of the Judicial Service.
He said the association was not holding brief for the management of the Judicial Service, but rather, they were aware that all efforts by the top management had proved futile.
“We, JUSAG, want to put on record our misgivings about government’s attitude towards the Judicial Service, relative to subventions,” he pointed out.
According to Brako, the press conference was necessitated by the fact that JUSAG members were not happy about the non-payment of subventions due the service, adding that the association issued a press release in April to draw the government’s attention on the need to release the outstanding subventions, but nothing had happened, hence the two-week ultimatum.
