DISCUSSIONS from training workshops for Justices of Peace and Commissioners for Oaths have been very fruitful, says the Chief Justice Anthony Gates.

"I attended one of the workshops and I am pleased with the discussions that came out of it," he said.

He said the workshop had seen topics such as having a yearly incidental allowance and uniform stamps (same stamps) to be issued by the Chief Registrar, arise out of the workshops.

"These ideas merit further consideration and I shall take it up with the authorities," Justice Gates said.

After the swearing in ceremony on Thursday, the new Commissioners for Oaths and JPs attended a half-day training workshop at Suvavou House in the Capital City.

Justice Gates also talked about the availability of guides for Commissioners for Oaths and JPs.

"Read the booklets carefully, and keep going back to them to peruse the knowledge it entails.

"Maintain records of your work, on the person you did the work for, and the function you carried out," he advised.
